Urban Scandinavian Sewing Book Tour Round-up

quilts

Wow, I'm completely overwhelmed by the amazing creativity and talent shown from my book, Urban Scandinavian Sewing. All of the bloggers did such an amazing job taking inspiration from the book and putting their own unique perspective on their project - exactly how I had intended for the book to be used. I hope you enjoy the inspiration as much as I have. Enjoy!

First up is this amazing mini-quilt from Nicole at Modern Handcraft that was inspired from the tea towel project in the book. I just love Nicole's use of color and movement in this piece, absolutely stunning! Plus, did you see the quilting?!

Next up is a wonderful version of the Sail Away Tote from Nicole at Snips Snippets. The Sail Away Tote is a great project for anyone to do in a day, and I just love Nicole's details on the front. The wooden buttons are absolutely perfect!

Jennie from Clover and Violet created her own beautiful version of the Drafty Door Decor. I just love that she used a minimalist color palette and fabrics that complemented her personal style and taste. And, I can't help but think the little shoes just make this even more adorable ;)

Are you having fun yet?! Tessa from The Sewing Chick did a gorgeous version of the Quilted Bed Scarf. I just LOVE that she's going to use it as a wall hanging. Plus, the hand stitching details really compliments the quilting for added visual interest that just wows - in an understated way of course.

And finally, Alli from More Please Thank You and her version of the Winter Quilt! I'm so glad she went for it and used colors outside of her norm - the hot pink, green and brown look wonderful together! And, special kudos to Alli for sewing an entire quilt in a week ;)

Thank you to all of the bloggers for lending your creativity and time to share your projects from Urban Scandinavian Sewing - I couldn't be happier or more excited to see all of the projects together.

Stay tuned for exciting fabric line updates coming soon!
