The Fleet & Flourish Blog Tour : Brooke Sellmann & GIVEAWAY!

Today ends the first week of the Fleet & Flourish Blog Tour, I hope you've enjoyed following along! Each Friday throughout the tour I have a new Fleet & Flourish fabrics Giveaway lined up, but before I share those details I have to show you my friend Brooke Sellmann's beautiful project!

Brooke created a patchwork table centerpiece using all twenty of the prints that make up my Fleet & Flourish collection! She plans to offer a pattern for her project and even created a video tutorial for how she finished with circular quilting. Be sure to visit the Silly Mama Quilts blog to check it out!

  70. My favorite project from the first week of the blog tour is Amy Friend's Possibilities quilt. I want her to make a pattern, because I want to make that quilt! It also has my favorite print from Fleet & Flourish featured - Roadside Guides! My second favorite, because I love the use of prints as borders, is Amy Smart's Lemoyne Star quilt. Sometimes stripe-y fabric can be hard to incorporate, and using it as borders - very fun and dramatic borders - is a genius idea!
