Today My Day... For First Blush!


It's time to share this scrumptious fabric line
with you!


I have been waiting and waiting... 
for this blog hop to begin!

I am so in love with this gorgeous group of fabrics
by Ruby Red Designs!
I first noticed it on the Fat Quarter Shop website...
in the Coming Soon section...
there will be a Block of the Month
 starting that looks like so much fun!

Then I was thrilled with I was asked 
to be a part of this blog hop...
because I can think of so many thinks to make with 
this fabric group, First Blush.

What spoke to me right away was how vintage it 
looked...
so I grabbed my collection of vintage sheets to see
if they would play well together...



I am in love with Pumpkin Seed blocks and
all the things you can make with them...
and it was about that time I saw a sew along



finishing up on Joanna's blog and I wanted to 
play along... 
(because that's how we get inspired... 
by fabric, designers, and by other bloggers)!




The quilt reminds me of 
my grandmother and fresh hung laundry
on a beautiful fall day.




I decided to make a slightly wavy edge on the border of the
quilt to give it even more charm.


I am so happy to see how it turned out...
but I am also excited to see this blog hop that will be continuing through the 27th of October!

I can't wait to see what everyone else has made!

The fabric is shipping to local quilt shops this month
so be on the lookout for it!



The other fun thing during the blog hop, is that
 there are going to be 
from Windham Fabrics/Baum Textiles, Aurifil Threads
and the Fat Quarter Shop!  
But you might also want to go over to Fat Quarter Shop to
see the new Block of the Month using First Blush
and a pattern by It's So Emma..
It incorporates the special Starburst ruler designed just for 
the Fat Quarter Shop by Creative Grids!





Okay, one more photo of my First Blush quilt...
and then I will share the list of bloggers 
that are in the First Blush Blog Hop!




 October 11 – Sinta at Pincushion (that's me)!

 October 12 -  Fat Quarter Shop



 October 15- Aurifil- Erin Sampson

 October 16- Tina Egner

 October 17 – Kristyne Czepuryk

 October 18 – Allison Harris

Oh, and one more little secret...

I have another 
project planned
 for First Blush too!

I should be starting it by the end of this blog hop!

Your quilt is beautiful--great pattern for the collection and your vintage sheets. I always have a wistful chuckle at "vintage sheets". They were wedding gifts the first time around. I never can believe my things are now considered vintage. Those fabrics are so sweet, and they caught my eye at FQS as well.
