Wistful Winds Blog Tour Stop



Welcome to my stop on the Wistful Winds Blog Tour!



The blog tour is almost at an end and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be a part of it. I follow an incredibly talented group of Makers! Did you see the great things they made?!  Scroll down for the full list and links. 

The next, and final stop is the designer herself, Shari Butler of Doohikey Designs.  You don't want to miss her heart warming post.  Shari shares her story about the inspiration for her new collection. 

When I saw this fabric collection with all the bright "HAPPY" colors, I knew it would be a perfect match for the "Sunkissed Blossoms" quilt pattern I designed. I added borders to one of the quilt blocks to create this fun pillow. All the bright, vibrant colors are inspiring! I know you will be inspired by them too!



I usually don't bind my pillow covers but this multi colored stripe is the perfect finish to this pillow cover. Don't you agree? 



A simple crosshatch quilting really enhanced the pillow nicely. 
It's my fav type of straight line quilting!



Wistful Winds is so inspiring that I've already planned a mate to this pillow. The yellow is a beautiful shade and such a happy color that I want to make it the star of the pillow.  

If this collection has sparked your creativity like it has mine, it will be in stock in my Etsy shop starting 10/25/16.  Follow me on Instagram for more info. 



To see the full Wistful Winds collection visit Riley Blake Designs





I hope you enjoyed your stop here!  
If you like my Sunkissed Blossoms block, I'm happy to say the quilt pattern is currently in the testing stages and will be ready for purchase soon. (yay!)

Now hop on over to Shari's blog for the last stop on the tour and find out more about this fabulous fabric collection.

    1. Oh Anita, thank you so much! I'm thrilled to hear you are excited about my pattern. The fabric is already on order so I won't have to do any presales. They should be in stock in a few weeks. I will absolutely offer kits. Maybe I can do a bonus pillow cover pattern. ;-)
