Michelle Wooderson, one of my favorite design team members at Papertrey Ink, is offering a fat quarter collection of Bliss fabric. You can see the details on her blog here. She asked us to share
"a favorite sewing project using fabric and why you like it."

I am such a fabriholic and this is a beautiful line. Asking me to choose a favorite project is like asking a mother to pick her favorite child. Not fair. But I will share one that is especially dear to my heart. It was really quite simple in construction and used charm squares. My dear, sweet, lovable, 7-year-old-at-the-time granddaughter asked me to make her a pink and purple quilt for her Christmas present.

It's really special because she asked for it and I think she really liked it.

She wears it well

The Bliss fabrics would be wonderful for her sister. *wink*

If you ever want to see a few more of my favorites, check out my Webshots albums. Those are ones that I remembered to photograph. Thanks for dropping by.
