Lovely Little Patchwork Blog Tour & Giveaway!

Today is the last day of the blog tour for my book Lovely Little Patchwork, published by Tuva Publishing!  I'm so honored that so many lovely and talented friends joined in to be part of it.   I loved seeing all their creations from my book!

One of my favorites still is the sweet vintage planter pincushions.  I made a pincushion and set it in this cute deer with a tulip cart.  I think it is so cute!

But then I also got this sweet girl planter recently so had to try it out in her.  I'm having a hard time deciding which one it should live with.  It may have to take turns.  :)

First on the blog tour was Sarah of A Little Happy Place.  She made this adorable cross stitch needle book!

Another sweet needle book was made by Heidi of Fabric Mutt!

Look at the adorable strawberry backpack Megan of Quilt Story made!!  I love it!!  The fabric is perfect for it!!

Cheri of Tinker with this made this lovely Apple Tree pillow!  Mine is hanging up in my classroom right now as a mini quilt as we are studying apple this month.  :)

This darling deer pillow was made by Ange of A Little Patchwork!  Isn't it the cutest!?!

Sedef of Down Grapevine Lane made my lemonade jug rug into the sweetest pillow!  I love seeing my creations turned into something else!!  I love how she used her new fabric collection!  Also, make sure to check out her newest blog post about her new book, Quilt Petit.

Next on the blog tour was Kimberly of Fat Quarter shop and the Jolly Jabber!  She made the patchwork heart coasters and hers turned out so cute!!

Samantha of Aqua Paisley Studio made this lovely patchwork star pillow and the needle book!  I love them both!!

Ayda of Cafenohut made the applique apple tree pillow and the darling cherry potholder!!  They both turned out so sweet!!

Check out LeAnne's of Everyday Celebrations super sweet creations!  Another version of the apple tree pillow, and these super darling pixie dolls she created from my Little Red Riding Hood pattern.  They are so cute!!

I think I need to make a pair of pixie dolls for Christmas too!!

Sharon of Lilabelle Lane made the Deer and Mushroom wall quilt!  She also made the back to school pencil pouch!!  I love the bright colors she chose!  It turned out so lovely!!

Next up was Laurn of Molly and Mama!  She made the Cherry Potholder into a cute little mini quilt!  I love her fabrics!!  And the cute button she added to the leaves are a perfect touch!!

Kate of The Homemaker Blog turned the cross stitch needle book pattern into a sweet pillow!  It is darling!!

Isn't Debbie's (of Happy Little Cottage) Apple Tree Pillow and Patchwork Sailboat Pillow to die for!!

They both turned out so cute!!

Next in the blog tour was Jennie of Clover and Violet!  She also made a couple of darling items...a tulip drawstring bag and a pumpkin and maple leaf pillow.  I love the creative take on both of these!!

Veronica of Vivid Felicity made a Cherry Potholder!  It turned out so cute!!

Next, Nadra of Ellis & Higgs made these sweet patchwork coasters!  I love the lace she added instead of the ric rac!
