The Fleet & Flourish Blog Tour : : Amy Smart

Today's stop on the Fleet & Flourish Blog Tour is my friend, the very talented author & quilt blogger, Amy Smart of Diary of a Quilter! I have been such a fan and follower of Amy's work since I began quilting a few years ago. I had the pleasure of meeting her for the first time in Pittsburgh at Spring Quilt Market, and she is the nicest, most genuine person. It's an real honor to have her join the Blog Tour!

Amy Smart -- Fleet & Flourish

When Amy received her bundle of Fleet & Flourish she was busy preparing for her teaching gig at this past weekend's Quilt Con ~ a class on advanced piecing techniques, including Y-seams. When she began sharing peeks of her Fleet & Flourish Diamond Stars on Instagram I was in love!
