Hello from Frankfurt, Germany! If you’ve been following us on Instagram, you’ve seen some photos of the awesome projects stitched up by the bloggers on the Journey Blog Tour hosted by Phat Quarters. They all came up with such great work! I wanted to give a little preview of each project here, and then you can visit each blog to see the full project.

The first stop on the tour was Sprouting Jube Jube, where Deb used our Skulls and Roses, Birdseed Blue and Arrows prints to make this adorable vintage bowler bag (the pattern is the Donna by Swoon Patterns). I love it! Check out more photos on Deb’s blog here .

The next stop on the tour was the Handmade Boy blog, where Kelly made a darling Presto Tunic (pattern by Love Notions) from our Desert Floral lawn. I think it turned out beautifully, and it’s inspiring me to make something similar for when the weather (finally) turns warmer.

That’s Sew Kari used the same Desert Floral lawn, paired with Birdseed Blue, to make a super cute, floaty and twirly Alice Dress (pattern by Violette Field Threads), along with a matching doll dress (SO cute!). She has lots of images on Pattern Revolution – check them out!

Traci made this gorgeous quilt using Journey and Diamond in the Rough from Wanderlust, which coordinates so well that I’m adding it to the Journey collection on the website. I love the intersecting squares, and the simple print block layout of the backing.

Tami of SewSophieLynn used our Paintbrush and Dry Garden lawns to make two Driftwood blouses (pattern by Twig & Tale). They seem like  perfect, easy spring/summer wardrobe staples (and I love the way she photographed them, too!)

Liesel of It’s Liesel stitched up a couple of darling little girl outfits using our Dry Garden poplin. She used the Chloe Dress pattern from Honeydew Kisses for the dress, and also made some adorable bloomers to pair with a baby top.

I always love a good organization project, and Gemia from Phat Quarters used some of the fabrics to sew up this awesome Grocery Bag Holder. What a great idea! A pretty way to keep your reusable plastic bags.

And also on the home organization front, I absolutely love this fabric basket by Crafting in the Rain! It’s perfect for holding extra scraps of fabric, or anything, really. There’s a tutorial over on her blog!

Easter is right around the corner, and this little stuffed bunny is just perfect for the holiday! I love the way Stephanie from Swoodson Says used the Moon Phase print and positioned the moons perfectly on the ears.

Next, there’s a sweet and simple reversible knot bag made by Ula of Lulu & Celeste, using Desert Floral and Dry Garden, with an adorable matching wallet. The silhouette is so simple and sophisticated that it could be used for anything, from evening bag to project bag.

To add a little flair to your home decor, Katy from Wild and Wonderful made awesome patchwork pillow covers using Coyote Moon, Birdseed Blue and Paintbrush. I love the gradation of blues and the texture!

Finally, Christy from Phat Quarters made this awesome abstract bag, using a bunch of the Journey prints together. I think it looks amazing, and I’m going to try to make one for myself!

I’m so impressed with all of these projects, and want to say thank  you to all the bloggers involved. I love seeing all the creative and fun ways they’ve used the fabric, and I hope it’s given you a wealth of sewing inspiration!
