Quiltmaker's Butterfly Forest Blog Tour!

Our friend, Felicia Brenoe, of Felicia's World, wrote a lovely book called the Quiltmaker's Butterfly Forest
The idea for the book was realized on a trip to the Ecuadorian Amazon. Felicia was inspired by all of the beautiful butterflies which made their way to the pages of her book.

Butterflies Rising (pictured below) was created using black and bright white Cotton Couture- it's gorgeous in its stark contrast.. like the shadows of butterflies in flight. 
Designed and pieced by Felicia Brenoe
Quilted by Gina Perkes
Detail of the quilt and the amazing quilting!
In honor of Felicia's new book, we're giving away a bundle of Cotton Couture so that you can make Butterflies Rising (a total of 8 yards!)
C&T has generously offered to add a copy of the book to the prize as well! (They're planning to give away a copy of the book every day of the blog tour so check back on all of the dates below.)

Front Yard Photo Hop!

We're kicking of 2017 with our stop on the Front Yard Photo Hop!
I used Front Yard Fabric by Sandra Clemons to create not one but TWO projects!
I started with some classic magnetic alphabet letters using a tutorial from All About Learning.
I think they turned out super cute (and would have made a really great Christmas gift if I had finished them on time ;))
 *I added adhesive magnetic strips to the back of all the letters so they can be used on the fridge.
I also thought that Bunny Tracks would make the BEST dress for an infant.

*the back closure calls for buttons so I covered some using fussy cut flowers from Bunny Tracks.

It's a little bit big now but it should fit Baby J this summer!
I used the Hula Hoop dress pattern by Puperita for the above look.
