I belong to CQI (Crazy Quilting International) Yahoo Group. One of the moderators of the group, Hideko Ishida, lives in Sendai Japan. At CQI we are sponsoring a project to generate funds for the recovery effort in Japan called Hearts and Hands for Sendai. The CQI webpage has further details for those who wish to participate. CQ blocks should be fancy fabrics (most of mine were in the red category) and jewel tones. I looked at the color wheel and used an analogous color scheme - mostly red toned fabrcs for the base and blue and purple with hints of green for the stitching. All the purple looks kind of blue in my photo. The lace in the foreground is really, really a deep purple but it looks blue to me in the photo.
