We are so excited to have you join us today! Big bunny hugs to the lovely, Christine of Quilt Monster in My Closet for hosting this hop! Of course, these wonderful, fun, hops would not be possible without the tireless efforts of our one and only, fabulous head cheerleader, Madam Samm of Sew We Quilt! Thanks so much Samm!
So let's get started! I was so excited to join this hop as I had just finished sketches for a new Folk Art Fusion Design called, Yellow Daisy Dresdens. It's a variation of an original dresden plate plate block. I couldn't believe there was going to be a dresden hop. So join I did. Fun!
I listen to music all day while I work, so most of my designs are inspired by words or music. In this case, Yellow Daisy Dresdens was inspired by music from Lindsey Stirling and her original song, Electric Daisy Violin. She is an incredible young lady and I love her fun spirit with a violin. Here's her video if you would like to listen to it as you read on. Yes...I hop around and dance in Bunnyville while I work. Gotta work them buns. My buns...not the Harrington and Hannah buns. hee,hee,hee. ;)
Forever being a decorator, I wanted to design something for my dining room table that you too could make for yours, or as a wall hanging.
As in all my Folk Art Fusion, there is wool applique, patchwork, hand stitching, machine quilting and more. Lots of fun things to do!
When I was at Quilt Market, a lady told me my designs were so nice because they were "achievable." I liked that! We all only have a few precious hours each day to do the things we love. It's fun to be able to make something that can actually be finished in a short amount of time and still gives us joy in the making of it. Being able to decorate our houses with something we made is even better! No special talent needed, smiling face required. :)
Patterns as well as National Nonwovens Wool and Valdani 3 Strand Floss kits for my Yellow Daisy Dresdens are available in my SHOP.
Of course, we have to have a giveaway! I mean this is a party after all! Woo hoo! Our prize for this giveaway is....
Rabbit embroidery scissors! To enter the giveway, please leave a comment on this post. As always, we love and adore our friends and if you are signed up (on the right sidebar) as an official friend/follower, you will receive two chances!

Thank you so very much for joining us today. Now, we invite you to hop over and visit our friends that we are honored to share this day with. Have fun hopping!
