Winged Blog Tour + Giveaway!

I’m excited to be a part of Bonnie Christine’s Winged Blog Tour! I had the pleasure of meeting Bonnie at Quilt Market this year. Amongst the craziness of quilt market it was a brief visit, but she is as lovely as her fabrics.

This is a fun blog hop where 30 various bloggers make something out of Bonnie Christine’s new fabric collection, Winged. You can see it all here. Sarah over at Crinkle Love was the blogger before me. I follow Sarah on Instagram and her work is beautiful, so be sure to see what she made!

Then, hop on over to Gwen’s blog Tillalili on Wednesday, December 17th, to see what she made using the collection!

I decided to make a fun and simple Quilt As-You-Go pillow using 4 fat quarters from the collection. Aren’t the colors just fabulous!

And here’s some fun! With the holidays just around the corner, I am in the gift giving mood. That being said, I am giving away this beautiful 16″ square pillow sham!

It’s been dark and grey here in Seattle, but this pillow makes it feel like Spring. πŸ™‚ This collection feels like a breath of fresh air.
