Wistful Winds Blog Tour

Hi everyone!

We have the cutest quilt to show you.

After meeting Shari from Doohickey Designs at market this past spring, we were so excited she asked us to design a quilt with her absolutely adorable fabric line- Wistful Winds. It’s bright and  versatile, with beautiful floral themes that we knew would be just perfect for applique.

We really wanted to create something that was just as happy as the fabric. The yellow and orange reminded us of my 6 year old’s favorite animal- the giraffe. After trying to figure out how to appliqué a giant giraffe on a quilt, we came up with this:

Oopsie Daisy Retail: $16

But really. That bird.😍

I just love everything about this! It was so fun seeing it all come together and I can’t imagine a better fabric for this design.

This quilt pattern, which we just had to name Oopsie Daisy, is found HERE!

If you use the code WISTFULWINDS at checkout, we’ll give you 20% off your order. This includes any of our PDF patterns. Expires at the end of the blog tour- October 14.
