Heartland Blog Tour!




YAY!  Today's the day!  I finally get to show you my quilt and extras I made for the Heartland Blog tour!  I was so elated when I was chosen to be on this tour.  I adore Art Gallery fabrics and Pat Bravo makes the cut when it comes to amazing fabric designers!



This fabric is so dreamy.  I love all the prints!  I decided to use the yellow mustard colorway.  Those colors are totally my fav right now.  I'm loving pinks with mustard, and florals??  Even better.  But of course, those owls are my most fav. It all makes my heart so happy!

First, lets start with the extras I made.  Using all the scraps left from the quilt, I made a pillow with pompom trim (of course!) and a note book cover.
                                     

I found this awesome chair over the weekend, and I had to snatch it up.  It will go in my sewing room with the pillow sitting on it.  I think they compliment each other perfectly!


Using simple 3.5" squares and a border, I quilted it diagonally.  I LOVE how it turned out. The owl print of course had to be front and center. ;)


I made the notebook cover with a ribbon tie.  SO easy and functional.  My daughter keeps trying to steal it.  This one is mine!

Are you ready for the quilt?!?  Here it is!  I named this quilt Trekken.  ♥









I LOVE how it turned out.  I used a pale pink minky back, which is scrumptious and compliments this fabric wonderfully.  And I'm in love with that neon yellow print so much I had to use it for the binding.



This fabric was SO fun to work with, I loved playing with all the different prints and colors.  It's totally me!  I hope this inspires you and go run out and get some!  

And guess what?!?  I've got a free PDF of my pattern just for you!  I can't wait to see your version!  If you make it, please use the hashtag #trekkenquilt!

A HUGE thank you to the fabulous Pat Bravo for giving me a chance to use her pretty fabrics in my quilt.  I drooled over these fabrics the moment I got them!  This quilt will be a long time fav of mine. A giant big thank you to Art Gallery as well!  You are both my favs!!!

Now, don't forget to check out the other awesome ladies on the blog tour.  I got to share my day with my new bestie Haley from @happinessinthemaking!  I love her guts.  She's so sassy and fun and makes GORGEOUS quilts.  Her Instagram feed is DELISH.  Go check her out, follow her and you won't regret it.  Her gorgeous Starflake quilt can be found here: happinessinthemaking.
