Hope you are having an amazing week!! What a beautiful last 2 weeks of Bountiful creations!
The incredibly sweet and talented Sharon Holland released Bountiful, with Art Gallery Fabric, in March. Bountiful is full of nature inspired Florals and Geometric shapes. She brings a mix of soft corals, greens, blues and pink, creating a serene palette. Funny thing is the serene color palette is just like her personality, easy to talk with, super sweet and beautiful inside and out!

Sue from Needle in a Fabric Stash and I teamed up for the last day of the tour. She made not 1, not 2 but 3 Bountiful Bags!! Check out her blog for all the low down on the beautiful bags she stitched up. I feel pretty lucky to be able to team up with her. She is a talented seamstress and a sweet friend (that just happens to own a fabric shop in town)!!
So let’s chat really quickly on how I decided what project I would make for the Blog Tour. It all started with Sharon and Maureen’s Sewcial Bee Sample, they inspired me to make my first Quilt Block. Then I got a big head (blahahahaha) and thought hmmm, let take that Quilt Block and make a dress with it.
I choose their Flying Geese Block. I will say though, next time I would place the flying geese straight down the middle of the bodice instead of down the sides like it is now. I am a bit obsessed with the back and I do feel this is a very special dress. True labor of love!!!
Fabric in the dress:
Scenic Blue Sky
Fabric used on the bags:
Scenic Blue Sky
Violette Field Threads, Tween Evelyn (with out the sleeves or bodice ruffles).
Thank you so much for taking the time to read AND thank you Sharon for having me apart of the Tour!
