Hello Everyone,
Welcome to my blog! I'm super excited to be part of Blithe Fabrics Blog Tour .

I decide to fussy cut these cute little birds from the Bird Songs Moon fabric to make the center of my stars:


The following accent fabrics were used for the triangles of the stars:

Avant Garde Blog Tour - Arrows Baby Quilt

I am super excited to be part of the talented makers in Katarina Roccella's blog tour.
Thank you, Nina for letting me participate in this wonderful blog tour. Avant Garde fabric is just mind blowing. When I first saw the pics at Art Gallery website, I was totally in love. When I recieved the fabrics they looked awesome in person and then finally when I started making my quilts. I am truly amazing to see how versatile Avant Garde fabrics are.

These two are my most favorite blocks, the Panda is loaned from my 4 year old son ;). He is a cutie and insisted that I use his Panda for posing :D
The arrows in the blocks were made from same two fabrics, but the the look is totally different.
