Boardwalk Delight Fabric Blog Tour

BWD 8

We started off and ended our summer with Dana’s, from MADE, first fabric collection with Art Gallery Fabrics. We had a photoshoot to kick off the summer for the Boardwalk Delight lookbook and now bring the summer to a close by blogging and sharing even more photos from that great day!! Boardwalk Delight fabric should be the official fabric of summer! Funny story, when I was sewing with this collection for the first time I was starring at the I Scream, You Scream so much I had to take a break and take the kids to get some ice cream! Nothing wrong with that right?

I had the opportunity to spend time with Dana, she is exactly how I envisioned her. She is creative, inspiring, kind heart and energetic!  I have been a HUGE fan of Dana’s blog for years now. It was actually the first blog I ever followed.

For this photo shoot I had the opportunity to collaborate with Cassie from Little Lizard King. Our families have become closer over the last few months so we will cherish these photos for a lifetime.

Hello, I hope everyone’s summer has been incredible and full of lot of adventures! Don’t you feel like summer is becoming shorter and shorter? Time flies by! My kids head back to school in a week!

Anyways, I got a little side tracked, I am excited to share a new fabric collection from Sarah Jane and Michael Miller.  Way back in March, while traveling back to GA to see family, Sarah’s new line popped up in my Facebook feed right before we boarded the plane. So obviously that meant for the rest of the plane ride all I could think about was all the amazing things I could sew with that fabric and then of course that started my pattern designing juices going!  I envisioned a summer sundress with little girls dancing in the beautiful sun. After the 5 hour plane ride I came up with Lauren, a summery sundress full of pleated details.  Isn’t it incredible how one person’s creativity influences another?!

Sarah has always been a huge inspiration to me since the time I first started sewing! Every time I see Children on Parade fabric, I  have flash backs of sitting at my sewing machine cranking out tons of skirts made with that print. I keep a secret stash of out of print Sarah’s fabric in my fabric closet that I will only pull out for very special projects!  Did you hear they will be bringing back some out of print fabrics??!! How exciting!!

In May I had the honor of sewing TWO dresses for her Spring Quilt Market Booth.

The first one is Paige, which is designed by Bernadette for Violette Field Threads.

Fabric:

Unicorn Forest
