Wistful Winds blog tour

Hi friends!  I’m here today to introduce you to another gorgeous fabric line.  Friends, this is Wistful Winds by Shari Butler of Doohikey Designs for Riley Blake Designs.  Wistful winds, my blog friends!

The colors in this line are just scrumptious and bright and cheery- so totally up my alley! I love the main floral print and the sweet little girls are just adorable.  You can view the whole collection on Riley Blake Designs website here.
I have been systematically going through my house, getting rid of stuff, updating decor and generally overhauling things. When this fabric showed up, I realized it was time to update some of my craft room inspiration.

I originally had this quote on a cupboard door made out of vinyl and paper, but thought it would be so much better in fabric with stitching and patchwork.  I was right!

I love the detail of the buttons and the thick pearl cotton.
 I don’t have a pattern for this yet, but if you’re interested in the pieces for the fabric applique, just shoot me an e-mail and I’ll send you a rough copy.
This fabric, in all of it’s bright cheeriness just makes me so happy.  And if you’re looking for more goodness using the great line, follow along the blog hop through the links below:

    Amy. I adore your quote "Create Your Own Happiness". I need to put this somewhere in my studio for inspiration! I love how you created the happy home from the Wistful Winds Fabric Collection by DooHikey Designs! Wow! It is just so cheery! The patchwork framing the quote is precious! Love every ounce of your project!
