National Sewing Month: Playful Petals Blog Tour!

Posted by Lynn Merrill on Sep 24th 2014

Hello, Hello! My name is Corey and you will usually find me blogging over at Little Miss Shabby. I am the author of the book Playful Petals.

I am excited to be sharing with you today about the blog tour for my book which just kicked off this week.

I have lined up 10 amazing bloggers from around the blog-o-sphere and they will be sharing with you their thoughts on Playful Petals as well as fun projects of their own. My book includes 18 different projects, 9 quilts and their mini counterpart in pillow form. I love the mini aspect as it gives the opportunity to "try out" each quilt before committing to making a larger quilt.

With this idea in mind, you will find some fun mini projects along the blog tour. Here's the line-up of bloggers you will want to make sure to visit:

September 15: Amy @ Stitchery Dickery Dock

September 16: Melissa @ Happy Quilting

September 17: Jessica @ Quilty Habit

September 18: Faith @ Fresh Lemons Quilts

September 19: Amy @ Diary of a Quilter

~Break for Weekend~

September 22: Sherri @ A Quilting Life

September 23: Amber @ Gigi's Thimble

September 24: Lori @ Bee in My Bonnet

September 25: Amanda @ Crazy Mom Quilts

September 26: Lee @ Freshly Pieced

~ The Blog tour will end with a wonderful giveaway you won't want to miss @ Little Miss Shabby ~

Each day on the tour, I will be sharing quilts & pillows from my book, on my blog.

I have also been working on a fun, free mini quilt pattern that I will be sharing with everyone, Mini Buds.

And why stop at one free pattern?

These petals can be a little bit addictive, so I decided to whip up a 2nd free pattern, Tiled Blooms. Both patterns, Mini Buds & Tiled Blooms, will be available as PDF patterns on my blog and I'll be sharing them during the blog tour. They are designed to use the fun, simple applique techniques I teach in Playful Petals.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you come visit me during the blog tour! You can always see what I am up to on Facebook, Instagram, or my blog:

Happy Sewing!
