Well, I don't know about you but my gifts to-make list just got a whole lot longer after seeing all these beautiful sewing ideas made by the Bountiful Holiday blog tour designers.
It's been another incredible week here on the tour and also our final week. If you missed any of the blogger's posts, here's a review of what they made.
Monday my good friend and sister Art Gallery Fabrics designer Maureen Cracknell started out our final week with four must-make projects. Maureen is well known for her quilt-as-you-go technique and she used this same concept to get two different looks. This stunning Bountiful Shine pillow is so cool the way the prints and colors are arranged in a radiating design.
From left over fabric from making pillows, Maureen was able to make these pretty and oh, so useful zipper pouches! I can think of a million uses for zip pouches, can't you?!?! Read all about these makes on Maureen's blog post.
Good things come in small packages couldn't be truer with Anjeanette Klinder's Bountiful Holiday make posted on Tuesday. These beautifully detailed coasters are amazing! Each coaster is exquisite. Anjeanette gives a step-by-step tutorial on her blog for making these hexagon coasters. You know, I just had a thought of how cool these coasters would be with my placemat project from last week, hmmmm, the gift ideas keep coming! Find out how to make these coasters on Anjeanette's blog and stitch a bunch up!
Wednesday brought on the cuteness! My sweet friend Alexis Wright of My Sweet Sunshine Studio is going to make her niece one happy little girl this Christmas when she receives this stuffed bunny. Alexis is an extremely talented garment sewer and makes most all of my clothing samples for Market. She is also a wonderful photographer and blows me away with everything she does. This bunny pattern is called Blushing Bunny by Violette Field Threads and is perfect in everyway. The Perennial Renewal and Plain Weave Thatch prints from my Bountiful collection could be more perfect for this adorable rabbit. See more about this make and tote bag on Alexis's blog.
Last but not least is the Crazy Chicken Table Runner by Katie Skoog of Simple Life Company finished out our tour on Thursday. Katie is a garment designer and owner of the Simple Life Company. She's an all round talent when it comes to sewing and quilting is no exception. Katie designed this appliqué runner just for this tour and is also offering the project as a free download from her site. I love how Katie incorporated so many of my Bountiful prints and used the Tracery print from my Tapestry collection for the boarder. This runner will be perfect all year and cheer up any kitchen. Find out more about this fantastic pattern on The Simple Life Company.
