Hello Ruby!

Everyone.....I'd like you to meet Ruby. Ruby....this is everyone.....
This gorgeous collection by Bonnie & Camille for Moda Fabrics arrived last night. I was so excited that I dragged John into the fabric room to show him the fabrics and point out which ones were my favorites. And then I asked him which ones he liked the best.....and he actually gave me an answer! But shhhh.....don't tell the other fighter pilots that he did this. It might get him in trouble! Anyway, these are John's favorites....
He liked the Aqua Sublime and the Ruby Swoon because he thought they looked very Hawaiian. And he liked the Grey Dots because they're very classy.

And here are my favorites.....
I plan on using the Grey Sublime, Grey Quirky and Ruby Sundae to make this Short & Sassy Handbag (grey floral on the bottom, grey swirl will be the band at the top and the red scallop stripe will be the ruffle, button and straps).....
How cute will that be???!!! The pattern for that bag should be arriving in the shop very soon along with some of her pattern friends. I'll obviously let you know when she arrives.
Sooooo.....which ones are your favorites and what masterpieces are you planning on making with Ruby???

Happy Sewing,
Jenny

ruby is fascinating ... the colorways are gorgeous, but those greys are something else! will have to thumb through the patterns gleaned from the net for the perfect pattern for the grey ruby.

I just picked up a charm pack of Ruby and the Ruby Swoon is so beautiful! Wish I had more of all of them! I'm planning on making a pillow or centerpiece with what I have. Your husband picked some good ones!

I love the aqua ones! All of them! I plan to make a baby quit. They're all very cute and I also love the grays.

Hard decision...love the whole line, but the reds and grays are the most wonderful!

I immediately thought of the Funked Out Peasant Blouse pattern I recently purchased and have not made yet. Ruby swoon, ruby aqua dot,and ruby sundae?
Or a Chubby Charmer tote bag with the Ruby charm pack?
I love this collection!

I too was waiting for Ruby & bought some of everything. I'm going to make a happy quilt for my College age daughter since she goes to College in Idaho & I think Ruby has such happy fun colors. I like your husbands choices...and yours too...LOL! Have fun & please share what you make. TY
