First Blush Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hello! Today is my stop on the First Blush Blog Hop. First Blush is the debut fabric line by Ruby Red Designs for Windham Fabrics.

I fell in love with these gorgeous colors as soon as I saw the bundle of fabric that Windham had sent me. They're really vibrant but sweet and have such a great vintage look to them.

I wanted to use a traditional block and make a quilt with my bundle. I chose a flower block and paired two prints together saving all the green prints for the leaves. I had all of my floral blocks made and it just needed something more.

I decided to make some alternating chain blocks to increase the size. I originally thought I was going to go with a very scrappy look with the chains but instead I chose all the reds and light blues to "anchor" the scrappiness of the rest of the quilt. My daughter and I loved this one so much that I plan on making it even bigger

There is also a new First Blush Block of the Month happening, which is designed by It’s Sew Emma and uses a special 30 degree Starburst ruler by Creative Grids.
Windham and Aurifil have a fantastic giveaway for you all! Everyday of the blog hop they are giving a way a full fat quarter bundle of First Blush and a matching Aurifil thread set. How awesome is that!?!

AGF Timber Quilt

Good morning! I am so excited to share with you the quilt I made using the free pattern called Timber by Art Gallery Fabrics and Fat Quarter Shop. It's one of the many free patterns in the AGF stitched with Kimberly series.

I love this pattern. It's so easy to cut, piece and sew. The blocks are big and go together in a snap, making a nice sized quilt that measures 64.5" x 80.5". 

Kimberly used Heartland fabrics by Pat Bravo for her quilt. There is a kit available for it HERE.  For my quilt I used Amy Sinibaldi's pretty Playground fabric.

I was so anxious to finally see it up close and work with it. I love how it turned out! My middle daughter claimed this quilt as soon as the fabric came.

The color combination in this block is my fave. These two fabrics look so sweet together.

This is such a fun and versatile pattern. It's a fun twist on a modern plus quilt.

Here is the link for the free pdf pattern.
Here is the link for the video tutorial.

Here is a list of the other bloggers who made the Timber quilt! Thank you AGF for the beautiful fabric!
