Hello and Welcome to the Sharon Holland Coastline Fabrics Blog Tour!!
What is your sign? No I am not trying to pick you up, just wanted to share that I am a Pisces and naturally drawn to water. So it makes perfect sense then that I am naturally drawn to Ocean inspired fabric right?!? Sharon Holland has been with Art Gallery Fabrics for a couple of years now and has 3 fabric collections with them, Gossamer, Sketchbook and now Coastline. I had the opportunity to see this collection at October’s Quilt Market and was totally blown away by the serene blues and purples of the North Shore colorway and the vibrant coral and aqua of the South Shore colorway.
Sharon is also hosting a giveaway so be sure to read allllllll the way to the end for more details!
What made the photo shoot for the blog tour more fun was collaborating with another creative mind, Sue Stone who is the owner of Needle In a Fabric Stash . She is also blogging today and sharing more photos of our collaboration on her blog. Click HERE. Isn’t her Quilt and Bag STUNNING!!!??!!
For this Blog Tour I used the Cosette Dress pattern by Violette Field Threads. I choose the Maxi Dress option with the pleated insert. I also left off the ruffles since this big girl no longer likes them, booooo! Why are you growing up so fast!!??!
Fabric used in the dress:
*Sand Bar Drift Wood
Look who joined us!!! Yes, he was SO excited to join his Sister. He is usually in the background looking for sticks and pretending to be a stormtrooper. Isn’t it awesome when you can choose fabric from a collection that can be used for Boys and Girls! Thank you Sharon!
I choose the ModKid Keagan Boy Shirt pattern which was a perfect fit for my Son!
*Netting in Twine
*Trade Winds Port
I think this might be the coolest pier I have ever seen and was quiet excited to shoot here in Sunny San Diego!
It was such a great day spending time with the kids and meeting new friends. I was a little stressed out making sure I got great photos but I know the kids had LOTS of fun!!
Stunning Floral Halo was purchased on Etsy , through Little Lady Accessories.
I added a crocheted trim I purchased from Joann.
I feel so lucky Sue decided to open a fabric store only minutes from my house (My Husband may feel differently) that carries designer fabric. If you don’t live where I do you can still check her out online!!
I can’t thank Sharon enough for having me join her on the Coastline Blog Tour! Click HERE for more inspiration and for the full line up of Bloggers!
Raedene from Chasing Mermaids hit it out of the park with her dress and beautiful coastline photos on Friday. Be sure to check out Jennifer tomorrow to see what beautiful creation she has in store for us!
