Heartland is inspired by the beauty of Scandinavia. I have to admit I had to sit and brain storm for a while and look to Pintrest for some Scandinavian inspiration. Other then Ikea (I know, very sad!) I did not know a ton about the Scandinavian style.  Pat has a great inspiration page on Pintrest.  So using that along with other research, I found some themes that come though loud and clear.  It is simple, fresh and minimalist.  Oh, and their beautiful landscapes! So for my photos I brought in the color red, landscapes, clean simple lines and of course I had to style my daughter’s hair up in braids. Too bad she does not have super blond hair, maybe a good dye job is in order. Just kidding! Hahahaha!

For my project I used:

Blomma Garden Pastiche in Voile and Unn Cross Pine in Cotton for the bodice. I have been obsessed with Voile lately! It is dreamy the way it moves and it is quite easy to sew with.

The dress pattern was made using the Emily pattern by Violette Field Threads.

See how the Voile has so much body and movement! Swoosh!!!

Hello Ollie by Going Home to Roost

Well hello , Hello Ollie!

Bonnie of Going Home to Roost released her latest collection in August and it is just as beautiful as all her other lines. This time she had done something a little different but so perfectly Bonnie, it is ORGANIC! This is Art Gallery Fabric’s very first Organic fabric line.How awesome is that!?!!agf-organics

Here is a little about Hello Ollie:

Like the delicate trace left by a Swan’s dance on the water, this collection illustrates the image of spending an afternoon in the meadow by the lake. Named after Bonnie’s daughter, Ollie, sweetness is brought to life with dabbling swans, feathered fellows and garden blooms.

I had the pleasure of sewing two dresses for Bonnie’s Quilt Market Booth in May. I really love the  subtle colors in the Pink Leaves color way and the dramatic colors in the Herb Garland color way. It totally fits my personality.  sometimes I am very tranquil while other times I am a ball of energy.

The first was sewn with:

Sweetly Sings Glimmer, Blossom Drift Flushed and Winnow Frock Charmed

In contrast, the second dress is sewn with more dramatic colors and prints: Swanlings Bevy Nightfall, Blossom Drift Roseate  and Nestling Gathering.

-I have also sewn with Hello Ollie in other projects. My last two patterns, Pepper and Mackenzie where sewn with this collection. I feel pretty lucky to have beautiful fabric to help bring my patterns, with Violette Fields Thread, to life!

Pepper dress is sewn with:  Swanlings Bevy Nightfall and Blossom Drift Roseate
