Sharon Holland’s Bountiful Holiday Blog Tour…

Are you ready for the Holidays? Ok, admit it, you have already been listening to Christmas music!! My kids (I guess I can’t blame the kids) put it on the day after Halloween.

Buying Christmas gifts is one of my favorite and most stressful things to do this time of year. I am always striving to buy the right gift for each person but I always feel like I never hit the mark. Some of my favorite gifts our family has given to our friends was our homemade presents. This is year I told myself more homemade then store bought! Well I am off to a great start. This first gift is for my Niece, she is almost 2 and I think will love this little bunny!

This adorable bunny is made with Sharon Holland’s Bountiful fabrics in…

Perennial Renewal- Sweet Floral Print

and

Plain Weave Thatch- The perfect accent print

The Perennial Renewal print maybe my most favorite print from all of Sharon’s Collections. That is saying a lot since I love so many! It sweet, fresh and delicate!

Hello All!!

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!

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.

AAANEWEH4A6431

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!!!
