Sew Red for Women

I was so excited when Leah from Burgundy Buttons asked me to be part of this amazing Blog Hop!!  And  I just jumped at the chance to be a part of something that is for such an amazing cause!!!     Have you heard about it???  Here are some of the deets.


What is the hop about?
Well, it's about hopping!  And raising awareness about heart disease!

Each month, Sew Red for Women will feature an original quilt block designed ecspecially for you by some of today's most inspiring designers & bloggers.  We will provide a special link to hop on over to the blogger and/or designer's site for details and instructions for completing the featured block. And you just might learn a thing or two about heart disease while you're there!

The hopping begins on February 3rd, which happens to be Wear Red Day!

Who's Partcipating? And when?

What an amazing group of talented quilters!!!!  I am so excited to get to work with these people!!

What fabric are we using?
 While we do not yet have a final fabric supply list as the designer's are still creating thier block, we will be using fabrics from Chemistry by Cosmo Cricket and coordinating Bella Solids.  Naturally you may use any fabric you like!

As the blocks are released, Burgundy Buttons will offer a block-specific fabric pack for purchase while supplies last.



Will there be a flickr group?

What fun is it if you can't show off?  Share pictures of your block and finished projects with the group at http://www.flickr.com/groups/sewredforwomen/

We are so excited to bring you this heart friendly hop and raise awareness about heart disease at the same time!  Please help us save lives by sharing information about this event on your blogsite, twitter and facebook!  Grab a button from the Sew Red for Women Blog and add it to your side bar!
