Block #47 of Barbara Brackman’s Civil War Quilt 2011, called Dixie Tea, threw me for a loop on color choices. At first, I wanted to use a light blue with some red “tea leaf” motifs in the pattern. This was the result.
Yucky!!! What was I thinking? So I decided to replace the two light blue squares with more of the red with star squares and this is what I got.
This looks more like a leaf to me. So glad I made the switch. I might drink some Dixie tea made out of this leaf!
