A New Age

This block is called Carina and is the first block in a 13 part BOM we're just starting at The Pin Cushion. The BOM (A New Age) is from Nancy Rink Designs. And the fabrics are all "new age muslin" by Marcus Fabrics. I've never used this over-dyed muslin before but it is a dream to sew.

My experience so far is that there is very little stretch and it presses wonderfully. Every seam has a nice crisp press. The color here is a bit brighter than it really is. The colors are a bit more "dusty" than they look in the picture.  

My next task is to make a bonus block using greens from my stash. Anyone who brings a bonus block next month to the Saturday Sampler session will get an opportunity to win those bonus blocks. I have 3 greens pulled from my stash already. 


  1. Hmm, I need to look for "new age muslin" the next time I shop for fabric.

    This block is lovely.

  2. I've never heard of New Age Muslin either. Your block is beautiful.

  3. Very pretty. Always so many new things to learn about, including fabric.
