Fresh Quilting Across the USA :: Day 7

Whew! I made it all the way across the USA and boy...wait I already used that. I'm actually not tired; I'm thrilled. I've really enjoyed reading the comments and seeing some of the interpretations of the Fresh Quilting projects. Today's the last stop on the tour and it's a great place to visit. Kathy Mack is a designer and owner of a fabulous online store, Pink Chalk Fabrics. I can personally attest to how terrific her space is because not only do I buy a lot of fabric from her I also sell my downloadable patterns there. On her blog today she's posted her review of Fresh Quilting: Fearless Color, Design, and Inspiration including a book giveaway.
Throughout the blog tour I've featured photos that I took of the projects before I sent them off to the publisher last winter. Since this is the last day, I've decided to focus on two of the wearable projects I designed for the book. In the book these items are modeled by professionals, but my photos feature two lovely girls, my eldest and her friend. Being teenagers they insisted I not include their faces, but take my word for it they are as cute above the neck as they appear below the neck.

I especially like the mix it up patchwork scarf . It lends it self to so many different interpretations depending on the fabric used.

I'll need the book just for that!

Congratulations on a great book and another successful trip across the USA.

I just love your "fresh" quilting ideas. It really has inspired me to try different fabrics and colors for my quilting. All you quilting projects are so happy.
