Paperie + Fabric Tuesday


I'm so flattered that the uber talented Amy Sinbaldi from Nana Company asked me to participate in her blog tour for her first fabric line, Paperie.

A soft and sweet palette, I was so inspired by it!


I played around with a few ideas and ultimately wanted to make a mini and wanted to use hexies, but in a new way.  Then making a circular shape really got some ideas going! I get a little enthusiastic over the process sometimes, lol!


You are my Greatest Adventure.

The sweetest saying, I can't wait to quilt it and hang it in my girl's room.  This was such a fun project for me, embroidery + mini + applique + hexies :)


Thanks for stopping by! Below is the full blog tour list to see lots of Paperie projects.  Make sure to check out Nana Company as well.

Paperie is from Art Gallery Fabrics and you should have no problems getting your hands on some! :)

You truly were inspired! So adorable. It will look sweet in your little girl's room. And isn't that the truth? They are our greatest adventures! My daughter is in college now, but your quilt brought back so many sweet memories. I'll remember this one.
