Autumn is for Birds – Blog hop

My friend Jamie Fingal has a super cute new line from Hoffman Fabrics called “Autumn is for Birds”, and Jamie invited me to be part of her blog hop to make something out of her adorable fabrics.  I have to tell you I’m super addicted to those stripes!!   Here’s my Robot art quilt made from her fabric line.  It’s 8″ by 9″.

img102Since I’m not really known for using prints, I started a table runner using some improvisational piecing and fabric manipulation techniques.  I wanted to see what happened to some of the prints when you used smocking and gathering on them!  Here’s the overall shot of the table runner, which has yet to be quilted.  It’s about 20″ by 34″.


This block is gathered using the gathering foot.


This block was smocked using my Heirloom Smocking Template.


This block was also smocked!  It’s so cool!


Here’s all the fabrics in the line.  What’s really awesome is Hoffman Fabrics is offering a giveaway of a bundle of the fabrics as a giveaway to one lucky blog hopper!   What would you make out of the Autumn Is For Birds line, if you could?  Your comments below on my blog count towards the giveaway, so be sure to comment!!  Comments open until Feb 25th!bird bundle 2015 Be sure to visit all of the blogs on the hop below for more awesome artwork made with Jamie’s fabric!
