Welcome to the first day on Good Hair Day Blog Hop Tour!
The next 9 days are going to be packed full of sewing goodness! Follow along with the Good Hair Day Blog Hop so that you can see all the fabulous projects from the look book in detail and meet the wonderful people behind them. Have you seen the Good Hair Day look book yet? If not you can find it here.
Here is the playlist for the Good Hair Day Blog Tour – you won’t want to miss seeing these projects up close!
Day 1 – Windham Fabrics / Kim Andersson – I Adore Pattern
I made several projects for the Good Hair Day look book and I love how they all turned out.
It’s funny, as a designer you work with your designs long before they ever make it to fabric, and then when you start working with these designs on fabric they just have a life of their own. Combinations start to come together that come as a surprise, even though you have been working on them for so long. It’s a little bit of fabric magic.
Twice Tied Quilt
When I first started thinking about my quilt design for Good Hair Day I knew that I wanted to make something that incorporated a bow design. I wanted something modern, but I kept being pulled to more traditional Bow block designs. What to do? Blow it up large and put a twist on it :)
I love how the bows show the warmer and cooler colors in the collection and I love how they nest across from each other. I adore the ribbon quilting by Terri Carpenter, a lovely tie in with the bows and hair theme.
Twice Tied is a FREE pattern available on the Windham website – available soon!
Good Hair Day Pillow Set
Oh the the Good Hair Day Pillow Set! These were fun to design, though I had to make quite a few hair designs before finding the three that worked the best on a pillow. These have been very popular and I got many squeals when people saw them at Houston Quilt Market.
I’ve written up a tutorial for these pillows (see the next post) and I can’t wait to see you make them too. It’s so much fun to see peoples projects made with Good Hair Day!
Good Hair Day Appliquéd T-shirt
Once I made the appliquéd pillows I was ready the appliqué all the things and experimenting with different flower shapes for this t-shirt was a lot of fun!
Good Hair Day fabric is in stores now! Please please please share images of your Good Hair Day projects with me. I’d love to see them :)
