{forest floor} blog tour

hello! and welcome to my stop on the forest floor blog tour! i am a big fan of bonnie christines fabrics (you can see here and here) and it was an absolute delight to work with her forest floor fabrics, the designs are just as brilliant as ever!

in all my years of sewing i have never made a dresden plate before (i know!) so while drooling over and petting these fabrics i thought a dresden plate would be perfect and now i have a new mini quilt for my new bedroom :)

i just love that bunny! she will definetly be popping up in my other projects! the illustrations in this fabric line are soo sweet, it was hard choosing just four to play with :) i also think i will making a lot more dresden plates, it was super fun to make and it's great for fussy cutting the centres!  and me being me just had to add a little something more :) hence the doily! 

i absolutely adore these fabrics! and love the woodland-y feel that they have! i have some fabric left over that i am itching to make something else with :)

thank-you bonnie! for letting me play with some forest floor fabrics. make sure to have a look at all the amazing projects being made with this fabric here! and you should see the adorable quilt jayme made yesterday at finding sweetland and to stop by tomorrow to see what Maja Wlusek at Betyipiernaty has made :)

  1. I love your mini quilt! And the doily - great idea, looks perfect :)

  2. Oh thats cool!! The fabric used for making quilt should neither be too light nor too heavy. Light materials like organza are too loose to weave a quilt and the end-product is feeble. I think with high quality fabric, chances of being disappointed are nil. Child Actor LA

  3. Hand quilting is a calming way to spend the day. You want short and pointy needles, start at size eight which is the biggest and then the littlest which is twelve and it's critical to have uniformity.
