To Market To Market - on a WHITE Horse??

Yes, indeed, Tina Givens does come up with some wild ideas - including this photo shoot with a white horse!

     Tina is a designer for Free Spirit Fabrics and this is the complete quilt I made with her new linens from "Pernilla's Journey".

     I must confess that the linens were like sewing with butter and the finished quilt is delicious!

     This quilt will be a free downloadable available from www.freespirit fabric.com as well as www.tinagivens.com  Check it out soon!

     I also made this little girl's jacket from the linen - the outer shell - with a Designer Essential Cotton from Free Spirit as the lining.  The coat is from Tina's book - "Sew Tina".  I had fun fussy cutting the fabric design for the coat.

     Please note the inside pockets are also cut to feature the flower.

     What little girl wouldn't look adorable in this coat????
     Please note the birds are really shown off on the backing as well as the wild flowers.

     What fun I am having these days!
