Patty Sloniger & Emma's Garden!

Hello there! I'm really happy to be guest posting here on the MMF blog to kick off my Blog Tour for Emma's Garden. It's going to be a fun week and a half, filled with lots of projects and tutorials, and a giveaway on every stop!

Emma's Garden is a collection I dreamed up when I found out I was expecting a little girl, my first. I knew I wanted this collection to be something I could make dresses out of, for her and for me. It had to have florals and butterflies, and some classic motifs as well.

Have I mentioned how awesome it is to see both our names on the selvedge?!

I had so much help sewing up samples for my booth at Spring Quilt Market, here are Emma and I being silly in a romper Rebekah made for her! (Don't mind me while I post just a few pics of the little one!)

Playing in the grass with a softie by Liz Pawlik that will be making an appearance with another animal friend later.

and a darling baby quilt by Hilary of YoungTexanMama .

This little number was one of emma's favorite to wear because it was sooo soft. Felice Regina of SewScatterbrained crocheted the top yoke, and I sewed on the skirt. 

Check out that sweet, scalloped collar!

You'll also be getting a better look at this cute, reversible wrap-top also sewn up by Liz Pawlik of FatChickQuilts a little later on the tour, but I couldn't resist previewing it here.

Finally, here's a sneak peek at a few of the other projects you'll get to see...
