The Fleet & Flourish Blog Tour : : Christopher Thompson

Today's Fleet & Flourish Blog Tour guest is my friend, modern quilter & blogger, Christopher Thompson ~ The Tattooed Quilter. I'm so excited to share his work here on my blog! Christopher's style of quilting is refreshing, contemporary, inspirational -- I could go on and on! He's an absolute master mini quilt maker and I was so hoping to see one made with the Fleet & Flourish bundle I sent him to create with! Combining tiny squares of my prints with Art Gallery Fabric's brand new, super soft, high quality denim from the AGF Denim Studio, Chris made this Appalachian Mountain Mini, inspired by the new Broadway musical, Bright Star and the mountains he calls home. I LOVE it!!

I was very excited to see my Roadside Guides print used as binding! I will definitely be using this print to bind my own Fleet & Flourish quilt projects!

As someone who really loves quilt photography, the photos Chris took of his work inspired me just as much as the work itself! There's so much more to see on his blog, HERE, so be sure to hop on over!
