Bush Gum Blossoms Blog Tour

Today I am excited to share with you and maybe even introduce you to a new and exciting Aussie Designer, Amanda Brandl and her new collection,

"Bush Gum Blossoms"

I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Amanda at AQM, Australia's only Industry Quilt Market, last November and see the collection in person on the Kennard and Kennard Booth.  Now I have to admit, I am not normally drawn to "Aussie themed" collections but Oh My, Amanda has blown this collection out of the water. Not a brown or rust in sight and the prints are so pretty.

and for a closer look .....

Amanda has also released a second collection for Kennard and Kennard called "Taking Flight".

Another gorgeous collection of Aussie themed fabrics.

I had originally planned to remake one of my existing quilt patterns but as soon as the fabrics arrived I knew that they deserved to be something new and I had the perfect Quilt already drawn up!

The feel of these fabrics is beautiful and sat. They were an absolute joy to work with.

Allow me to introduce my new Quilt, simply named,

This pattern will be ready for release after Easter.

We are nearing the end of the tour which is a little sad but it also means that you can follow the links to the blogs below and see all the amazing creations that have been made from both of Amanda's new collections.
