I managed to stitch up another top this weekend! I have a second one cut out and half-sewn, hopefully I can share it later this week. For this one I used some teal shot cotton from a local quilt shop and Innocent Crush voile by Anna Maria Horner for the binding around the neck, hem and a contrast pocket. I added sleeves to this one too!
Pattern is the Wiksten tank by Jenny Gordy.
Blogger's Choice Bundle from Fat Quarter Shop! I'm really excited to share it tomorrow along with a mini tutorial! I might just have a bundle for you guys too... ;)
Amanda's birthday! She lives in Tennessee so I choose the Tennessee star block from 50 Fabulous Paper-Pieced Blocks by Carol Doak. Love this book! And I'm very happy with how this mini turned out, and by how much she liked it!
Terri! I love the pink ends! You can get your own in her shop!
Orla Kiely bedding again. Orla Kiely is one of my design heros! I love her style so much, and my home is filled with products from her line at Target from a few years ago. I knew I couldn't afford the bedding, but I wanted it so badly! It's just like the duvet covers from Heal that I've been lusting after for years. As I was about to walk out of the store empty handed, I saw a set in the clearance section. It was the right size and it was 50% off. With my 20% coupon, it was in my price range. It does have a few light stains, but I'm happy as a clam! Look how awesome it looks on our bed! :)
I am excited to welcome some new sponsors to In Color Order! Surly Sheep, specializing in color wheel sets and color bundles, Emmaline Bags, modern bag patterns and hardware, Westwood Acres, fabulous bundles and precuts and Sprightly Fabrics, designer fabrics by the yard! Thanks for your support!
