Today I'm excited to take part in Bonnie Christine's Winged Blog Tour. Bonnie is a fabric designer and I've just fallen head over heels for all of her lines. If you follow along on my blog, the Honeybee fabric I used for my Catherine quilt is from Bonnie also. I finally finished her and will be sharing photos soon. For today I created some whimsical pot holders that I plan to give as Christmas gifts along with some note cards.
Bonnie sent me these four fabric fat quarters and I just love how her lines are mixy matchy but coordinate so beautifully. You can definitely choose fabrics from just this one line and get a really fun project going. Bonnie was inspired by the first butterfly sightings of Spring for this line. It evokes a new season, warmer weather and fresh blooms. I think these fabrics will be perfect for my potholders come Spring time when we're all ready to be over with the holidays and cook something fresh and new.
First, let me tell you that my process photos are a little wonky. I like to work first thing in the morning when the light is bright so it wasn't the best timing for taking photographs. But I wanted you to see my process so here goes. I knew I wanted to cut out the butterflies and make them the center focal point of my potholders.
I hope you enjoyed my project today. This is a great blog tour and I've enjoyed Bonnie's previous blog hops so much. Be sure to check out Bonnie's cute project from yesterday and then hop over to May Chappell's blog on Monday for another inspiring post. There are 31 wonderful days to this blog tour so don't miss out. Thanks for stopping by.
