...a companion piece to the quilt.
You may have noticed a new little button on my side bar labeled "All dolled up in SLC."
This is one of many blocks created for this project. I was so inspired by this challenge, that I hope to put them all together in a fun quilt soon.
For this project, each designer was given a paper doll which we had to use in our block design.
I thought a shopping girl was just the ticket for quilt market, after all it is quite dreamy to see all of the beautiful new fabrics, notions, and patterns before they arrive in the store!
Which is why she had to have these bolts of fabric!!!
This version had to feature fabric lines from Riley Blake, so if you're wondering where to get these cute fabrics, you know what to ask for at your favorite shop.
I hope you will take advantage of this opportunity, and remind your quilt shop owners to stop by and take a peek at these quilts. A fun giveaway is in the works if they do!
In other news, I am finishing up a few projects to take to the quilter. Can't wait to show you what I have been working on! Be back soon......
We learned how to roll the frosting in sugar to create the apple, and adorned it with a tootsie roll stem, and a laffy taffy leaf. We learned to dirty ice the duck, and then dip it in candy melts to create a cute little duck with mini m&m eyes, and a orange tootsie roll beak. I let the girls go crazy with their monster, he was made using sugared fruit rings and dum dum sucker eyes. The girls got really creative making their monsters, covering them with candies.
