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.

I can’t wait for this fabric to come out, I love it so much! I’ve enjoyed the tour and have some new blogs to follow too! I would make a bag, and I’ve been wanting to make a Gravity Quilt, and this fabric would be perfect.

Elle said:

I have been waiting impatiently for this line to get where I can buy it for my son’s HST rainbow quilt, which I am desperate to make/finish for him before his 5th birthday! I never got around to making him a baby quilt, but this queen-sized quilt will hopefully make up for it! I love all the projects on the blog tour, but those placemats! They are just over-the-top incredible! This is such a gorgeous line that i’ll Be breaking my rule about not buying more fabric without a plan to just buy a ridiculous amount of each one! Everyone will call me “that girl obsessed with Foundation fabric”!

I have a design in my head for a sweet little mini quilt (rainbow) ? and I really love the Knot and Thread Hello Pouches!

I love these fabrics. They are so bright and cheerful. I don’t have fabric for a project right now. I would like to make the wallets by Sarah. All the pockets in the design are great! I love the Hello Pouches by Kaitlyn because you can see thru them! I think my granddaughter would love the shorts by Jessie! I’d love to make those too! Great looking fabric!

I already have plans to buy some of one of the low volumes to go with some fabric I have picked for a quilt, which just so happens to be using one of your patterns. ? And I’m thinking I’ll need some of the colors to make myself some hello pouches. I already have that pattern and love how hers came out! ??

Danielle said:

I am mesmerized by this fabric as well as every project created with it! My favorite is Elise and Emelie’s argyle bag though. What a great idea!

Carol J

Carol J said:

The problem would be choosing one specific project, they would go with just about everything already in the stash! Especially since the prints, need some basics!!

Ann from NC

Ann from NC said:

All the samples are great! Really liked the tote bag and pouches! I need some primary fabrics for a map quilt, a sewing themed quilt, and it would be great to make one of your patterns in my stash with your fabrics!


Kristin said:

Kudos to Nicole at modern handcraft for the peak quilt she made with this. I love that pattern and will need to make one soon. If I were to win I would use the fabric to make a lap quilt for each of my daughters as they need a quilt as vibrant as they are


Carol said:

Loved the blog hop and I can’t wait until the fabric is in the stores. So many great ideas, but I think the mini wall hanging and the bags with the clear vinyl on the top are a couple of my favorites. Not sure what my first project with these fabrics will be, will have to see what feels right when I have the fabric in hand.

Karen K

Karen K said:

I am over the moon loving all of these fabrics. I would definitely make something (or everything) from Robin Ruth’s patterns
