~ The Blog tour will end with a wonderful giveaway you won’t want to miss back here on my blog ~
Today, Amy, of Stitchery Dickery Dock will be sharing about Playful Petals over on her blog. I really hoped Amy would join my blog tour after I ran across this amazing quilt she made.
This is Amy’s “Tuileries” quilt that she designed to showcase Heather Bailey’s, True Colors, fabrics. The design fits in perfectly with the quilts in my book–I love it!! You can read more about Amy’s quilt here.
Be sure to pop over to her blog sometime today to see what she is sharing about Playful Petals!
Each day of the tour I will also be sharing quilts from my book:
Today, I thought I would start things off with the cover quilt, Rainbow Petals.
Rainbow Petals is designed to use a layer cake or 1/8 yd. cuts of fabric. I love it in all of it’s scrappy goodness!–The original quilt was made using Vanessa Christenson’s line of fabric Simpy Color with just a couple Sew Stitchy prints by Aneela Hoey thrown in.
My mom hand quilted Rainbow Petals for me using 8 wt. Perle Cotton in a rainbow of colors. The accompanying Rainbow Petals Pillow is made using a few sweet, Japanese prints. The pillows in the book are a wonderful way to use up some scraps.
You can read all about my inspiration for writing Playful Petals here.
Be sure to stop back tomorrow for some more quilty fun! I would love if you would ask your applique questions in the comments so I can take time to answer them during the blog tour. And remember, I’ll also be sharing 2 free patterns with you and the blog tour will be ending with a wonderful giveaway. 🙂
