Ruby Tuesday

Yes, I know it's been FOREVER since I updated my blog.  I'm still getting caught up on some old and new blocks of the month.   This seems to have been the Summer of UFOs for me.

But everyone needs a little something to spark their creative juices.   I am totally in love with Bonnie & Camille's upcoming fabric collection, Ruby.   I bought a fat eighth bundle.   I made this.  Bliss.   Oh wait - that's their last collection!  I love the addition of grey to this new line and I love the brighter green.

The pattern is Basket Case by Cluck Cluck Sew.  Leaving off the borders (which would mean waiting until October for Ruby yardage to hit stores!), the quilt measures 50 by 70 - perfect width to use a white Minky dot on the back and have a cozy, snuggly quilt.

And next I've pulled out ANOTHER old UFO - I have all the blocks done and now I just need to put it together with the pieced sashing.   I forgot how pretty these blocks are!
