Desert Bloom Blog Hop With Amanda Herring

Amanda Herring from The Quilted Fish has a new and amazing fabric line called Desert Bloom.
Love it (and that cute Amanda Herring, too!)
Amanda and Riley Blake Designs gathered several of us together to get creative with this
gorgeous fabric. You can check out all the fabrics in the Desert Bloom line HERE.

A Dresden Bloom Quilt

Quilted Works did the beautiful quilting on it!
You can't see it, but there is cuddly white minky on the back

I love all the birds on her fabric, so I embroidered one in the middle of the Dresden.

A sweet apron for the dolly in the other Desert Bloom color...the pattern is Simplicity #1240...


...and one for this cute girl!

Thanks, Miss Ellie, for being my apron model!

 Thanks, Riley Blake Designs and Amanda, for letting me sew with this sweet fabric!

Oh, and look at this cute "Thank You" from Amanda...the cookie was delicious, by-the-way.
Thank you. Amanda, for this sweet package and for letting me sew with your fabric!
