Red and cerise

My red and cerise blocks are done for the bottled rainbow quilt along........  I do still plan to do it QAYG, I am just going to hand-quilt this (I think! LOL)
I love how both these turned out.  I am using a blanket applique stitch and using coordinating thread.  For the cerise block,  I used rayon embroidery thread since I have about 100 embroidery thread colors, but only maybe a dozen or so all-purpose thread colors.  I think I'll use the rayon for all the rest of the blocks too :)  It's finer and seems to hide a little better......

I think I'm going to work on the orange or yellow block today.......
