Foundation Fabric Blog Tour Recap
All good things must come to an end and today is that day for the Foundation Fabric Blog Tour. The fabric will be out in stores in March/April, so be sure to look for it and share any projects you make!
Now, let's recap all the amazingness that happened these last two weeks. Some talented makers really put their all into some amazing projects. I am blown away by all the quilts, bags, pouches, chill pills, placemats, wallets and shelves, all made with Foundation. It was two weeks stuffed full of inspiration! If you weren't able to keep up with all of them, no worries! We are going to quickly recap with links here, so you can go see them all again! It has been a dream come true to see what people will make with my fabric and I hope to keep seeing projects in the near future! All the project photos were taken and belong to the makers.
