Bountiful Holiday Tour Week 2 Recap
It's been a fun packed second week on the Bountiful Holiday Blog Tour and an honor to have these talented designers working with my prints. I hope you're getting lots of sewing ideas for the upcoming holiday season!?!?
Let's get right into the recap, starting with Blair Stocker of Wise Craft Handmade on Monday. I'm in love with everything Blair does because her sense of pattern play and quilt style speak to my soul. I have both of her beautiful books, Wise Craft and Wise Craft Quilts and want to make every project in them! Blair used her stand alone Stepping Stones quilt pattern and made a mini quilt with Bountiful fabrics. I love the shadow play of lights and darks and how this design can take on different looks the longer you explore it. Read more about Blair's Bountiful make and more about her on her blog.
On Tuesday, the incredibly talented Silvia Sutters of A Stranger View blew all of us away with her Weave quilt of select Bountiful prints and Art Gallery Fabrics coordinating Pure Element solids. Here's another designer that I admire and love everything she stitches. Silvia tells you exactly how she made this quilt in her tour blog post which you must visit just to see all the beautiful photos she took of this quilt--wow. I'm also crazy for the quilting Silvia did on this quilt!
This beautiful kitchen set trio was designed and made by Peta Peace of She Quilts A Lot. Peta is a highly accomplished and talented designer who also has her own book A Piece of Cake that's absolutely delicious with great quilty projects. Peta's kitchen set project is so lovely in her limited palette of Bountiful prints. Don't you adore the fussy cut farm scene on the towel--perfection! Best thing is Peta has made a free PDF download pattern for this project! If you could bare to part with the set it sure would be a wonderful hostess gift for holiday party going. Read more about this on Peta's Bountiful blog post.
I couldn't let everyone have all the fun so I took a day on this blog tour to share a new free pattern. Thursday I blogged about my Gather Round placemats. This project is a free PDF download and they go together really quick. The hexagon shape looks great on any size table and the instructions are given for making 6 placemats. Read more about this project on my post and see how they are also reversible!
Friday ended our second week of the tour with Heather Andrus of Quilt Story. Heather stitched with Bountiful Vine Umbra print knit dress for her youngest girl. I adore this color on her and wouldn't this dress be perfect nearly year round? AGF knits are thick and buttery soft and good for all sorts of sewing besides garments. I still want to try making a knit quilt one of these days with simple squares. Read more about Heather's make and how flirty fun this dress is on her adorable girl--I love it!
We still have one more week of great holiday sewing projects to come. Monday will my bestie and sister AGF designer Maureen Cracknell. Maureen's been sewing up a storm and I cannot wait for you to see it!
