first romance ~ red & white

Today is Canada Day so I thought it would be fun to show you First Romance reds AND whites today. ;)

I made six little scrappy pouches for my quilt market booth - one in each colourway (sorry, forgot to take a photo of them) - but I gifted all except the red one away as I was packing up.  I met soooo many lovely people at Market.  Seems like such a long time ago already.  Thank goodness for texting and Instagram to keep in touch with far-away friends.

Anyhow, back to red & white. 

I've had more than one person inform me that my red isn't really red, that it's actually a really dark pink.


Ok, maybe it is. ;) But I intended it as a red.  And it reads red next to my pinks.  So ... call it what you like, I love this colour.  I'm already seeing Christmas and Valentine's on the horizon, just saying.

These whites.  I love love love white prints.  Always have, always will.  I especially love these ones ... low-volume essentials, I'd say.

And I'll be using the tossed stems one (bottom center of the second last photo) as an embroidery background until I can no longer stitch, I'm sure.

Happy 150th Canada!

I get more excited with every reveal! I love this line and I am sure I will need every piece of it! Can not wait! When should it hit stores in the US?

Your red is DEFINITELY my kind of red, so pooh to the naysayers.

Although I was born in the states, my parents are both Canadian. I REALLY wanted to claim dual citizenship, but would had to formally request Canadian citizenship (not automatic) and per the US doing so would have meant giving up my US citizenship. Anyhow, wNted to get a Canada Day mini quilt made for the celebration of the 150th, but our cross country move has hampered my sewing time.
