2024 March Monthly Color Challenge Block

 Did you need that extra day in February for the Monthly Color Challenge? I was definitely in need of an "extra" day.

Our challenge this month is inspired by tropical fish. Such beauty lays under the water, it's hard not to be inspired.

This month our color is red and we look to the Cherry Barb for our inspiration.

From Modest FishCherry Barbs get their name from their vivid red coloring covering their whole body. A peaceful schooling fish, when housed with others like neon tetra and rasboras, it can make for a picturesque community tank.

I love the red of this fish. I bet seeing a flash of red in your tank would be so pretty.

I'm using Benartex's "Burlap" fabric line. I love the texture of the fabric, sooo much.
