Sew Red for Women

I'm really exited to be a part of this blog hop hosted by Leah at Burgundy Buttons!
I have a fun quilt block planned to share with you during my stop on the tour. I hope you'll join me in raising awareness about heart disease!

Here's more information about the Sew Red Blog Hop...


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 especially for you by some of today's most inspiring designers & bloggers. We will provide a special link to hop on over to the blogger &/or designers 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 Participating? And When?
February 3 - Leah at Burgundy Buttons
March 3 - Fat Quarterly's Tascha of Hanies Quilts
April 3 - Kate of Swim, Bike, Quilt
May 3 - Melissa Corry of Happy Quilting
June 3 - Charlie of Qubee Quilts
July 3 - Here!
August 3 - Melissa of The Polkadot Chair
September 3 - Amber of A Little Bit Biased
October 3 - Amy of Diary of a Quilter
November 3 - Amy of Amy's Creative Side

What fabric are we using?
While we do not have a final fabric supply list as the designer's are still creating their 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 blocks or 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 blog site, twitter and Facebook. Grab a button from the Sew Red for Women Blog and add it to your sidebar!

Together we can make a difference!
