Welcome to week one of the 2013 Designer's Mystery Blog Hop hosted by Fat Quarter Shop.
Twelve Moda designers have each designed a block for the
Fat Quarter Shop Designer Mystery Block of the Month.
This BOM features fabric designed by Joanna of Fig Tree and Co.
The name of the line is Avalon.
It is such a pretty, Joanna like line.
Pretty little florals and prints in her signature colors of soft yellows,
greens, aquas, reds and of course buttercream.
This line also features this little navy dot.
It's such an ordinary little print - we have all seen it before.
But you mix it in with all of those soft prints and it makes everything pop.
This BOM is actually a row quilt consisting of 4 rows of three blocks.
A basket, a star, a house and a flower row.
If you have not signed up for this BOM
and wish to do so go here for all of the details.
Three designers will be blogging every Monday the month of February.
We have all designed basket blocks.
Fat Quarter Shop has asked us to blog about our ultimate dream gift basket.
I asked if there were guide lines - did it have to be quilt related - did it have to fit inside a certain size basket??
I was told there were no rules or limits for the gift basket.
I decided to dream big - like maybe it is a gift basket from Oprah.
So here goes.
First up is this quilt designed by Lissa Alexander.
Here is the link if you wish to make the quilt.
I however am hoping for an already made quilt -
as in pieced, quilted and bound.
But if that dream does not come through,
I just may have to make it myself .
And if I have to sew it myself, I certainly would
want to do it using this little red hot number.
For one dollar less than a thousand dollars
you can get your little featherweight painted here.
As many of you know, I am a bit of a shoe fanatic
I am really loving the pop of red with the nude.
I could wear them while I sew on my little red sewing machine.
I would totally be color coordinated!
If you like them and they are in you budget, you can purchase them here.
I better hope they are in my basket.
I have always been a fan of Oscar de la Renta.
He makes such beautiful gowns.
I espially love this one - so plain, so simple, so beautiful.
I probably should dream for the body to go with the dress.
I am sure this model is about 6'4" and a size –0000.
And if you were that size you would not need a gift basket
as the this dress in this size, I am quite sure would fit in a ring box.
Again if you desire this dress and have the budget - you can find it here.
And while we are dreaming …
Who wouldn't want George sitting in the chair beside you?
Sadly I do not have a link to George.
I do however have the link to this guy…
and I am not sharing.
And don't forget to head on over to Fat Quarter Shop and check out their blog today - They are having a give away!
And speaking of give away - I too am having a give away.
