Wistful Winds is the latest collection by Shari Butler for Riley Blake Designs. I had the pleasure of meeting Shari at Quilt Market back in May this year and not a gentler soul may be found. This range has a very deep and meaningful back story and Shari will be sharing more of the inspiration behind her range through the blog tour. I was thrilled to be asked by Shari to participate in this blog tour and you can see what I have made below.
I just love the mix of red, blue, yellow white and pinks in the sweetest florals, all that have fabulous co-ordinating blenders in spots and stripes and lots of bold geometric patterns.
I have already made one of these "On the Go Backpacks" and I said I was going to definitely make more. I just love how this version in these Wistful Winds fabrics have turned out. I love red and these red florals against the bias stripes are just so cute. The spots really let the future prints stand out and this pattern works so well.
I am going to make some more of these Backpacks as well as they are so cute and will really make great gifts.
I also used this range to make this sweet pillow from Peta's Sweet Stars Quilt Pattern.
