 Today is my day on the Citified Blog Tour

Our host is Sherry Shish of Powered by Quilting

This is the third time I have taken part in a blog tour showcasing a signature line of fabric for Sherry. I have been inspired each time by the beautiful colours of the fabrics. 

For this blog tour I revisited one of my patterns and made it with the Citified fabrics. Here is Dropping In featuring Sherry's signature line.

These colors make me look forward to summer sunsets! But they also remind me of the way light plays off the tall buildings in a big city.

I chose my Dropping In pattern because I think this log cabin variation plays with the idea of modern buildings - it looks like one building just bumps right into the next!

Pattern Bundle this week only

I decided to have a special Pattern Bundle deal featuring the 3 patterns I've used during the 3 blog posts to feature Sherry's signature lines.

The first pattern included in the bundle is Dropping In which I'm featuring in this blog tour :)

While right now my favourite is Citified, I have enjoyed the colours and fabrics of each past line too.

Sunbeams is also included in the Citified Blog Tour bundle. 

The blog tour I featured this pattern in was for the Plum Pudding fabric line. These beautiful winter inspired batiks make me smile! I finally found some backing fabric I like for this one (one of Pat Sloan's Harmony widebacks in purple!) and this is on the shortlist to be quilted.

You can read more about the Plum Pudding blog tour here.

Hearts and Churns Sew Joy Creations

The final quilt pattern included in the Citified Blog Tour Bundle is Hearts and Churns.

This is one of my more recently quilted quilts. This fabric line, Love and Kisses, inspired many designers to create quilts with hearts on them. You may have seen the Exploding Heart Quilt by Slice of Pi? Same blog tour!

I like this quilt because I found a way to incorporate the churn dash - my first and still favourite quilt block. You might notice it shows up in my patterns a lot ;) 
You can read more about the Love and Kisses blog tour here.

This 3 pattern bundle deal is only available this week! 

The bundle gets you these 3 patterns at 20% off each compared to if you bought them all separately. You can get yours in my online shop
