Hello Ollie Blog Tour

So excited to be apart of this wonderful blog hop featuring Bonnie Christine's fabric line Hello Ollie.  I feel so privileged to sew for Bonnie for Spring Market just a few months ago, as she debuted Hello Ollie for Art Gallery Fabrics.

Hopefully you got a chance to check out Lisa's beautiful post yesterday. There have been come incredible posts already from the #HelloOllieBlogTour so hope you will continue to join us!  Here is the schedule for past and future posts!

If any of you follow me it is no surprise to you that I sewed up one of Annie's fabulous designs.  Her Open Wide! pattern is one of my most favorites.  I love making it and especially find great use for these bags everyday!  I had a hard time picking which prints to use from the line (because they all are so great) here are the prints I ended up with!

I quilted these fabrics together just on my home machine with a layer of Soft and Stable between the fabric.  I quilted 3/4'' crosshatch design.  I love how it turned out.

I decided to forgo the front borders on the pattern so be able to show the beautiful swan print.  Also note that because the print on the largest bag was directional I seamed the print on at the center of the bottom of the bag so that it would be right side up on both sides of the bag.


And for there Quilt Market debut!!

It was also lovely to meet the fabulous Bonnie herself.  She is the most genuine and kind lady, and a rockstar designer!

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure to see what they are up to at Annie & Dot tomorrow!!
