Lovely Little Patchwork Blog Tour + Giveaway!

Welcome to my stop on the Lovely Little Patchwork blog tour! I'm so thrilled to be a part of this tour celebrating the first book by Kerri Horsley (of Lovely Little Handmades / Sew Deerly Loved fame), whom I have been following since I started sewing back in 2012. Her style is so unique and inspirational - in fact she is one of the reasons I took up sewing in the first place!


This book is packed to the brim with eye candy and publishers Tuva (who are also publishing my first book Quilt Petite!) have done an amazing job of mixing Kerri's gorgeous photos with water colour illustrations. So yummy! So much so that I found it really difficult to pick just one project - hell, I wanted to make'em all! After much toing and froing, I settled on two projects.


My first project was 'Lemonade Jug Rug' which I turned into a cushion using my Sweet Orchard fabrics. They were a perfect match with their fruity theme and vibrant colours. Those visiting my booth at the spring quilt market may remember this cushion which was part of my display there. 


I had the pattern printed and sitting on my desk for a week before I made the cushion. So even though you are supposed to flip the templates when making the applique shapes I'd got so used to this mirror-image version that I just decided to replicate it as it was. I love how well the yellow dotty print works as lemonade and the red bias stripes are perfect for the straw.


For my second project I made the 'Heart Coasters' in three different colours. And guess what - I totally cheated here, but isn't that what cheater prints are for? Seriously these took no time to make at all, as I didn't have to do any patchwork. I enlarged the heart template in the book by 25% to make it a better scale for the cheater prints from Sweet Orchard, so my coasters are more of a mug rug size.


Courtesy of Tuva I have an extra copy of 'Lovely Little Patchwork' to send to one of you! To enter the draw just leave a comment below. Open worldwide. ***** GIVEAWAY CLOSED - WINNER IS CJARVIS! CONGRATULATIONS - PLEASE EMAIL ME YOUR ADDRESS! *****

Here is a full schedule of the tour so you can visit the other makers to see their fabulous creations. You can also follow along on Instagram with the hashtag #lovelylittlepatchworkblogtour. Thank you for visiting!
