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.

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.

Bountiful Holiday Blog Tour

Bountiful Holiday Blog Tour

The Bountiful Holiday Blog Tour starts November 1st, 2017. I've been wanting to organize a tour like this for years but was never on-the-ball to get it done in time for holiday sewing. Well, this year it all came together and it will be extra special to me because I'm featuring my Bountiful fabric line from Art Gallery Fabrics as the fabric for the tour. 

Eleven super talented designers and myself will be blogging about fast and fun projects you can stitch for the family, decorating for the holidays, and gift giving ideas. I'm so excited to see what they've made. Here's the list of names and dates so you can follow along:

11-01  Mathew Boudreaux  Mister Domestic

11-02  AnneMarie Chany  Gen X Quilters

11-03  Brooke Sellmann  Silly Mama Quilts

11-06  Blair Stocker  Wise Craft Handmade

Here's a sneak peek at my fabric pull for the new free pattern I'll post about on the 9th. I've mixed Bountiful fabric prints from the Plant and Harvest colorways to curate a frosty winter looking palette. When I was designing this collection I really viewed the Harvest colorway as something that would be perfect for winter sewing with out being a traditional Christmas look. This is more of a country winter look in my mind and I can't wait to share my new project with you. More about the specific print sku and names on my tour post next week. 


For lists of online shops that carry my Art Gallery Fabrics collections, visit my Shop Fabrics page.


If you're an Instagram user and follow my IG feed, I'll have daily postings and links to the Bountiful Holiday Blog Tour Makers and their projects and it will also be easy to follow along by searching the hashtag #BountifulHolidayBlogTour. I hope to see you following along on that platform as well as visiting and getting to know these amazing blog tour Makers. 

There will a giveaway at the end of the blog tour. My generous sponsor for this tour is the Fat Quarter Shop and they're giving away a 10-pc Bountiful Harvest colorway fat quarter bundle. On November 17th, 2017 I'll post the final weekly recap post along with all the details on how to enter into the Bountiful Harvest fat quarter bundle giveaway. You'll have a chance to enter right here on the blog (on the that final post, so be watching for that) and also on Instagram.

Every time you share a tour image along with the #BountifulHolidayBlogTour hashtag, to your public Instagram account, you'll automatically have your name put into the hashtag pool and automatically be entered into the drawing. So share and repost those Instagram images by the Bountiful Holiday Blog Tour Makers often and use that hashtag (hint, hint)!

A blog winner and an IG winner will be drawn on Monday November 20th. All this information will be given again at the end of the tour but thought you'd like a head's up :)

I hope you enjoy the tour as much as I will! Tomorrow visit that wild and crazy Mathew Boudreaux to see what he's stitched up for my tour. You'll find him at his blog Mister Domestic. I love that guy and he really should be called Master Domestic because he has mad skill and can sew anything! But, what I really love about Mathew is he also has incredible teaching skills and can teach anyone to sew--and sew well.
