Well, well, well. Here we are. It’s the week after QuiltCon, my quilts arrived home safely from the show before I could even get my bag unpacked. Then I went head-first into three big projects this week with hot deadlines of TODAY. So what better thing to do, but to cram in my final Geogram Blog Hop Tour post in as well? Exactly.
For you literary types, you can find a little designer backstory on the Geogram line here. For the rest of you scroll-happy picture monsters, let’s cue a plethora of rainbow fun photos now, shall we?
First up are some photos (taken by my friend Hoodie Crescent) of my Geogram booth with Lecien Fabrics at Fall Quilt Market in Houston last October.
Purple Walrus in a bowtie with a 3D pocket handkerchief because I always love to complicate matters…
Badger Baby wants to stay close to Owl Mama, while Red Fox clowns around in the background…
Stately Panda Bear in a double-breasted waistcoat, OBVS, and Rabbit Girl in front with her wonderful coat and scarf made by Kristi McDonough…
Why yes indeed, that cute Lecien zipper IS fully functional. Secretarybird wouldn’t have it any other way. (Random aside: the more I stare at this portrait, the more it looks like Richard Simmons in a tracksuit)…
And because I know you were wondering, YES, my Animal Portraits will be available as sewing patterns soon, so STAY TUNED for those puppies to launch!
Bear Papa and Rabbit Girl look like they are on a walk in the park on a nice sunny afternoon together. This makes me want ice cream. Like, now.
Baby Badger rocks life in a glorious one-piece, as we all should…
Table of fun stuff, including my book, Sew Adorkable and circle precuts (called “Wah!”) of Geogram, which I personally think are totally ingenious. May all the circle sewing COMMENCE!
If you might have missed it, I also designed a free quilt pattern, called Home, Sweet Home; it also debuted at Fall Market. You’re welcome. 🙂
And, if you missed it, the last tour stop before mine was by Terry Druga who absolutely NAILED this interpretation of my Braille Alphabet quilt from Sew Adorkable.
This is a scaled-down version with raw-edged appliqué circles (Um, HELLO, see what kind of goodness those Wah! circle precuts I mentioned before would be perfect for!?!?)
I think I can fawn over this quilt all day. I adore the loose “sketched” circle stitching and the fabric just pops like little candy morsels!
Pick any part of it, and it’s filled with magic.
In the late evening sunlight, it shines (sure, I’m totally biased, but WHATEVER). This is the back of the quilt and it’s just so darn comfy looking!
Thank you to Terry Druga, Rebecca Greco, Kate Basti, Daphne Parthoens, Giuseppe Ribaudo, Laura McDowell Hopper, Kristi McDonough, Nicole Daksiewicz, Jessee Maloney, Nicholas Ball, Tara Curtis, Katy Jones and Brenda Ratliff for sharing their AMAZING maker skills and participating in the Geogram Blog Hop Tour. I so very much appreciate it! All the HEART EYES!!!
For the rest of you fine, lovely people, I hope you enjoyed the GEOGRAM Blog Hop Tour (tooooot, tooooooooot!!!!) and you have a blast making ALL THE FUN THINGS with Geogram! Post and share pictures; I’d love to see what you create!
