Before I share the pretty Fleet & Flourish project made by today's guest, Heather Bostic House of A La Mode, I have to show you the amazing yarns she dyed up inspired by my collection!

Aren't they beautiful?! I couldn't believe it! Heather completely surprised me by sending these skeins my way as a gift, but soon you'll be able to find more of her amazing yarns in her shop, House of A La Mode Fiber Goods, so be sure to follow her Instagram for all the updates!

For the Blog Tour Heather started stitching up X and + scrappy quilt blocks, free pattern found HERE on the Badskirt blog! This is a favorite quilt block pattern of mine, it was great to see it in Fleet & Flourish!

Heather finished her blocks into an amazing quilted pillow! I'm so inspired by her project!!

The quilting she added is so perfect & cozy, and the little added lace loop is such a great idea!
