The final week of the Coastline Blog Tour was just as exceptional as the first two weeks with five more uber talented makers showing off their sewing skill. I want to thank all the bloggers for making this the best tour ever. My deepest thanks and profound admiration for their sewing skills--you guys are the BEST!

Week 3 closed the tour with quilts, kids garments, and a travel tote. I want to thank and shout out to these designers for their beautiful and professional work!
On Monday, my very good friend and Quilt Market roomy Sharon McConnell of Color Girl Quilts designed and made a stunning quilt. Sharon is the master of curved piecing and also did an amazing job spiral quilting her quilt.
Candice Ayala of Candice Ayala made two outfits. The first is a Summer Dress by Bubby and Me from AGF knit in Tradewinds. The second is the adorable Beachcomber print cotton Pensacola Beach Petal Top by Seaside Notions. I love all the details and variations Candice made to the patterns to add her own touch to the garments.
On Wednesday, Anorina Morris of Sameliasmum showed us her Oh Buoy quilt. Oh Buoy is right, what a beautiful quilt that uses all the prints from the collection and photographed at a marina and lighthouse. Perfect design and tribute to the collection.
Aida Valverde of Aikamaku gave us another stunning local and made us all want to be on that sunny beach with her as she photographed her California Traveler Bag made from Sandbar canvas and assorted cotton prints from the Coastline collection. Aida designed this bag just for the Coastline Blog Tour and it's perfect for travel or a day at the beach!
Last, but not least, Jessica Stewart of Snickerdoodle Stew (and Izzy and Ivy Designs) wowed us with her children's clothing. Jessica used knit, cotton, and canvas from the collection to stitch the super cute Evie Sundress and Pippa Jacket. Find the patterns for these garments on Jessica's blog and shop.
A blog tour would not be complete without a fabric giveaway, right? Instagram followers were asked to repost their favorite images from the tour and use the hashtag #CoastlineFabricsGiveaway to enter into the drawing. A name was randomly drawn from the hashtag pool entries and the lucky winner of the 20 piece fat quarter bundle from the Coastline collection was Kathy Cummings! Congratulations Kathy, I hope we've inspired you to sew something amazing with your fat quarters.
Thank you everyone for following along. I hope you have discovered some new bloggers to follow and have loads of idea of what to sew next. Find more inspiration on the AGF blog and the Coastline fabrics Lookbook.
