{cultivate} blog tour

hello! it's my stop on the cultivate blog tour *yay* i absolutely love bonnie's fabrics! (as you can see here and here) and cultivate is no different, it's so beyond lovely.

how perfect is that brown fabric? i love all the warm colours in this collection, they just say autumn and cosy-ness to me! i also love the pops of colour, like that green, scrummy! you can see (and drool over) the whole collection here!

when i saw these fabrics the first thing that popped into my head was bear-paw blocks, but i wanted to do something a bit different with them, so coasters it was! practical and pretty, what could be better?

i paired my cultivate fabric with some essex linen and i think it really makes the colours pop! and of course to just finish them off i added some lace to the outside edges for some extra prettiness. i really enjoyed working with these fabrics, and i will definetly be incorporating them into my future projects :)

do you want to see more lovely projects made with cultivate? then hop over to Amanda's blog Material Girl quilts to see the brilliant hoop she made! and be sure to visit trudi's blog tomorrow for her project!
