From Tiny Florals to clocks and more .......... {Book Tour Update} GIVEAWAY



 One of the most exciting things about hosting a Book Tour is seeing the AMAZING creations that these talented creators make.  You get to invite people that inspire you and upon them saying yes you already feel so honoured that they would take time to do this for you. Then they create and put their own spin on your projects. It just fills your heart with so much joy.  

The quilting and crafting community is filled with so many generous people.

Lets take a look at what has been happening this week.
Please, click on the links and have a look at all the other creations that these talented makers make. 

Kristyne from Pretty by Hand  is known for her tiny florals and everything that she makes is so pretty and her debut collection with Moda, "First Romance" is equally as pretty. Kristyne has used the Aqua prints from the collection to make the sweet little needlebook. 
First Romance will be available in October.



Heidi from Buttons and Butterflies has turned the Table Runner from my book into Cushions. 


I love it when someone takes an element from a project and truly makes it their own.


Carlie does not blog but she can be found on Instagram HERE.

Carlie is one of the Awesome ladies that agreed to have a play with the cover quilt "Celestial Star".  
I knew that she would put her own spin / style into this quilt and I am in love, I actually love everything that Carlie makes and she is such a prolific maker.





I can't wait to see more.

Jess from Paper Pieces in the US has been playing with the "Be my Bunny" Quilt and oh my does it look different to the original. I just love the fussy cutting of Tula Pinks new range. Jess has named this one "Be my Homie".




Alison from Cotton Factory has played with the clock from the book and has made two versions already!  I am in love with this Tula Pink / Tokyo Milk version.


If you pop on over to Alison Blog she has the linker the Clock Mechanism and hands. I also see another clock in my future ........ I have ordered the white hands and they are currently in transit :)


Anorina from Samelia's Mum has played with the Journal in the book and made this cute journal cover for her daughter who also seems to be a little owl obsessed like my own Miss Lily :)

Sweet Prairie Pouch from "Quilting on the go ... English Paper Piecing"

This sweet zipper pouch is one of the projects in my new book,
"Quilting on the go ... English Paper Piecing".

Sedef from Down Grapevine Lane sent me some of her upcoming range 'Sweet Prairie" to play with and instantly I knew a project from my book that I want to remake as part of the Book Tour.


Such sweet small scale florals. I have teamed it with some gold fleck Cork Fabric and a gold dot background.  I personally love how it has turned out.


The original in the book is made from Tilda fabrics and it is teamed with a Rose Gold Leather.



I have also remade another project using this range but I will save that for another day :)



Thank you for stopping by and don't forget, if you leave a comment on one or all of my Book Tour posts through to 15th August you go into the draw to win a signed copy of my new book.


Happy Stitching,

Time to share some amazing creations ......




Things are starting to heat up now as we are getting into full swing for the Book Tour of my new book,
"Quilting on the Go .... English Paper Piecing"

Time again to share with you some of the amazing creations that have and are coming to life :)

Elise at Elise and Melie has been super busy. 



Elise has made both the Clam Shell Dilly Bag and the Zipper Pouch.


And .......


She has started her very own 'Celestial Star" and a super cute version of the "Be My Bunny Baby Quilt."  Both of these projects have papers kits available for them. They can be purchased from Paper Pieces in the US or local at your favourite Quilt Shop.


 The lovely Jennie from Clover and Violet  has made this adorable placement.


and has plans to make more. How cute are those strawberries.

Ange from A Little Patchwork 
has taken one of the blocks for the "Summer Star Table Runner" 
and turned it into a cute Mini.


Please visit the lovely blogs of the makers participating in the Book Tour. They all create so many amazing, inspiring and beautiful things.

Just incase you don't have access to or use Instagram here are a few more inspiring photos and a glimpse of what is to come.





Wynn is totally new to English Paper Piecing and appears to be enjoying it. Maybe I should say "Welcome to your newest addiction Wynn."  :)

Week one of the book your has kicked off with some amazing sneak peaks of whats to come.


Alex has been playing with "Celestial Star' for the last few months and I am so excited finally see her version come to life. Alex has such a fresh look to her work with her own signature style.



You can find Alex on Instagram by searching @alexouq.


Jess from Paper Pieces in the has also been playing.
I am so envious that she is already playing with Tula Pinks new range.

I am in love with Elise's colour pallet for her project.


Elise can be found on IG @eliseandemelie


Ahh ..... not is all as it seems here. It looks like @giucy_guice is making Celestial Star but is he?



I do love a rainbow creation and over the next few weeks Martina from @Avaandneve will be sharing her Liberty version of Celestial Star.

Clamshell Dilly Bags from "Quilting on the go...English Paper Piecing" *Giveaway Alert*


Welcome, today is one of my days on the book tour for my new book

"Quilting on the Go ... English Paper Piecing"

and I am excited to share with you my two versions of the

"Strawberries and Cream Clamshell Dilly Bag"




The original was made in soft pinks and white with a touch of bold red, easy to see why I called it "Strawberries and Cream ..."

My new version that I have made is more a "Blueberries" inspired version.


For this one I have chosen to use the new range "Bloomsbury" from Franny and Jane for Moda.
This range is set for release in September in the US.

 

I instantly fell in love with the blue and pops of coral. I tried to tell myself that I wouldn't do any fussy cutting this time but some of the charm squares had perfectly placed/cut prints that they just had to be. :)








I can't pick a favourite. I love both versions :)


Sadly, and despite all my best efforts in the editing process 
there is an error in the lining instructions for this project. 
You can find the correction HERE
The error has been corrected for future reprints.  xx



**GIVEAWAY ALERT **

Would you like to win your own signed copy of my new book?

To go into the random draw please leave a comment on this post, maybe telling me what fabric you would use.  The winner will be announced at the end of the Book Tour on August 15. 

There will be multiple chances to enter, just look for the Giveaway alert at the bottom of my Book Tour Posts.

Open Internationally.

Good luck and Thank you for stopping by.



Hoary Stitching,
Sharon x
