Blend Projects... Which one will you make??

Hello Blend Friends!  I wanted to share some fun and super-cute projects created using a few of our fabulous fabric collections.  Click on the links to find out where you can pick up your pattern or project... And don't forget to go to "where to buy" on to find out where you can pick any of these and more Blend collections!!
 Check out these two adorable little girl dresses created from our "Feather N Stitch" and "Believe" collections.  Full twirling tiers, sweet yoke details, and ribbons and rick-rack... It is never to early to start sewing the perfect summer dress for the little princess in your life!    
Spring Fling (left) and the Summer Pinafore (right) dresses were both made from patterns from Kari Mecca's Sewing with Whimsy book published by Martha Pullen Company.  These two dresses plus many more fill the pages of this fanciful treat in children's sewing and embellishing.  Click here to find Kari's book and many others plus fabrics, trims, notions and more...
Of course now that the little girl in your life has the perfect twirly dress... What else could she need???  
How about her own spectacular playhouse!!  

This is a wonderful new pattern from Ellie Mae Designs for Kwik Sew created from Blend's "Believe" collection by Jone Hallmark.  A fun and whimsical playhouse  covered in fairies and flowers and the ABC's... A wonderful surprise for every little girl!  Wondering where you can get yours... Stay tuned this is just a sneak peek...the Ellie Mae Design - pattern #108 - does not come out until spring 2012.

Now what would a project blog post be without any quilt projects??  Both these wonderful quilts were created by Metropolitan Quilt out of West Linn, OR.  Not only did Jeff and Debbie  do the fantastic patterns which are for sale on their website, but they made the actual quilts that were both featured at Fall Quilt Market this past October.

"Plumes et de Couture" is created from our Feather N Stitch collection by Sarah Watts.  A wonderful collection of novel conversationals, lovebirds and geometrics complimented with this great applique pattern... A must make for that special soon-to-be married couple or perhaps the new home buyer!!

"Versailles" is created from our Homespun Chic collection by Melody Ross (that just started shipping Feb. 2012... so hurry and get yours!!).  A fabulous mix of vintage ladies and sewing patterns, novel geometrics and whimsical florals are wrapped up in this fun and flirty quilt.

Stay tuned for many more fabulous quilts from Metropolitan Quilt... We certainly hope you love them as much as we do!!

I hope you enjoyed some of our projects thus far!  We can't wait to see which project you make...Make sure you post them on our facebook page!!  There are so many more to come so check back soon & look for our next designer post by Jules Davis...   Cheers!
