The Fleet & Flourish Blog Tour : Melissa Kelley & GIVEAWAY!

Today ends an amazing final week of inspirational projects made by my talented friends for the Fleet & Flourish Blog Tour, I hope you've enjoyed following along! Each Friday throughout the tour I arranged a new Fleet & Flourish fabrics Giveaway with a few of my sponsors, but before I share those details I have to show you my friend Melissa Kelley's beautiful project!

Fleet & Flourish ~ Melissa Kelly

Melissa is the amazing long arm quilter, Sew Shabby Quilting! Every quilt I've ever sent out to be quilted has gone straight to Melissa, she does such a fabulous job and I just love her so much!

For the blog tour she made this beautiful plus quilt to share, complete with her gorgeous quilting!

Be sure to check out more of Melissa's machine quilting work HERE at Sew Shabby Quilting, and to follow her on Instagram to see all of her daily sewing adventures!
