First Blush Blog Hop Day 4!

Happy Blog Hop Day here at Windham!


I am so excited to showcase one of the newest lines First Blush by Ruby Red Designs. When I first got a hold of the line, all I could think about was how perfect it was to make something for a little girl. The colors reminisce a more simple time.


I just couldn’t imagine a more perfect match than making a Lucy Tunic from Simple Life Pattern Company. Their patterns have me swooning every time I see one, but with only having a boy I hadn’t really had a reason to make them! Enter First Blush.




I absolutely loved making this top. It was so easy to assemble, the hardest part even had a youtube video to follow along with to guide you! I added my favorite thermoweb fusible interfacing to the bodice to make it extra durable around the kam snaps. It took four fat quarters to make the Lucy Tunic in a 9-12 month.




The shorts were also made using a bloomers pattern and a fat quarter! I just opted out of adding elastic to the short legs so it gave a different look to the tunic.


After making this pattern, I’m dreaming up ways to make more with this precious line. Can’t you just see the sweetest of sweet baby girl quilts or doll clothes?!? So many possibilities!

  1. My only niece just got married and they are planning on starting a family next year so this would be perfect to make a baby quilt out of. edrin1932 (at) gmail (dot) com.

    I’ve been thinking about making some pieced curtains for my sewing room. These fabrics would look real cute for that. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    I would love to use these for a log cabin quilt. I have one on my “someday” list and I think these would be beautiful in one!

    No little girls to sew for in my life. With some additional yardage, they could be made into some comforting pillowcases for our local Alternatives to Violence.

    Thank you

    I have seen several ideas using these fabrics and I am sure I will see many more. I will probably want to make them all. My first inclination is a baby quilt.

  7. The fabrics are adorable for some darling girl. I have 3 great nieces under 2 yrs old and at least one of them would get a quilt & tote made from these beautiful fabrics.
