Wistful Winds Blog Tour

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.

  1. Jemima this is the most gorgeous bag and pillow! Thank you for participating in my blog tour! I'm so thrilled to have you onboard and sharing in my journey with this fabric line! Love your creations, love your spirit and just getting to know you better! I'm so glad we met at Quilt Market! Someday I hope to make it to Australia!

    1. Thanks for inviting me to work with your amazing range Shari - can't wait till next time. And I will be heading to Spring Market next year so hope to see you again.

  2. Jemima! Your backpack is meticulously made. I am impressed with every detail. You have such an eye for pattern placement and the bag looks designer made. Well you are a designer - so there! The pillow is striking but simple with the two stars in alternating colors. Wow! I just adore both of your projects with the Wistful Winds Fabric by Shari with Doohikey Designs!

    1. This is the sweetest ever compliment Stitches Quilting - thank you so much for your kind words - it means a lot Deanna. J x
