...and another Summer Challenge!
I'm excited about my newest design collection...
Garden Party is part of the Every Stitch Counts program offered by Brewer, the distributor that I work with. Creating this collection was a great experience for me as all I had to do was provide the designs - and someone else (the fabulous Lisa Veith) created all of the projects!
The collection includes 4 large flowers, 2 medium flowers and 3 small flowers and various other fun shapes that you can "plant" in various pots and vases. If you own a bigger hoop or two, there are various combinations to stitch out a ready made flower in a pot, stems and all!
The projects featured on the cover are made with the beautiful Stof Quilter's Shadow fabric. The pattern for the flower pots wall hanging is available from your local Every Stitch Counts participating Bernina dealer (if you own, manage, work or teach at one please send me an email with the details of your store - name, address, phone etc - and I will post this info on my website so that people can find you!). The tote bag and journal cover can be found in the "A Day at the Beach" pattern from Kenzie Mac and Co LLC. Two new projects will be coming soon too.
Got a Silhouette Cameo cutter?
The Garden Party CD contains .SVG files for use in the Silhouette Studio software.

Garden Party Challenge
As we are moving right on into summer, create your own project using the designs from Garden Party and email a photo of your creation to SVD.Challenge@gmail.com by June 1, 2014. You could win the design collection of your choice (Express Yourself, Peace Love and Joy Collection, Heather Feather Border Collection, A New Leaf).
Some ideas... tote bag, journal cover (OK, so these are already shown on the CD cover, but there are a gazillion different possible variations!), apron, wall hanging (small, medium, large, the sky is the limit!), baby quilt, bed quilt, pillow cover (what about pillows for your patio furniture?).
You can stitch all of the designs out without an appliqué fabric if desired - just don't stitch the appliqué placement line.
I'm loving the apron that Lisa created!
