Summer Blush Blog Tour - Week 3

This week's featured maker on the Summer Blush blog tour is Christopher Thompson from The Tattooed Quilter! As well as being a fabric designer himself Christopher is a supremely talented quilter - he has a uniquely modern style and I especially love his unusual colour combinations. I saw a sneak peek of what he was making for the tour last week - it's SO not me, but I simply LOVE what he made - I can't explain it! It's really good that every now and then someone comes along and pushes the boundaries of what we consider pretty!

Christopher challenged himself to think of a traditional quilt block that could be updated to look modern - the tulip block was a great choice! These are foundation paper pieced blocks and come in three different sizes. Unfortunately Christopher ran out of background fabric but this will be a fabulous quilt when finished! I just love the way Summer Blush has been paired up with that brushed green background from Riley Blake's Shades range - it takes the collection to a whole new place.

For his blog tour entry Christopher used a couple of the tulip blocks and paired them with oversized flying geese to make this simple but stunning table runner. I love the bow effect in the middle! And I can just imagine how this delicious brunch would have been enjoyed once the photos were taken.

Thank you Christopher for taking part! We will conclude the tour this weekend when I will be sharing one of my own projects as well as some freebies. Thanks for visiting today!
