More colour work with a mini quilt

I pieced another mini quilt with a square of Fingerprint fabric as the centre. The print is English Rose #1.
This is an analogous colour scheme of red, red-orange, and orange in varying tones, tints and values.

Pin basted and ready to hand quilt with perle cotton.
I have finished the appliqué and embroidery on my Garden Tapestry #1 and have sandwiched it with batting and my own hand dyed green fabric for the backing. I am hand basting before I begin the hand quilting.
