Where Flowers Bloom - The Final Day and My Day

My vision became a reality thanks to everyone who played along in the
Where Flowers Bloom Blog Hop.

It was so fun to see flowers take center stage for one week
and
to all that particiapated or commented -
Thank you so much!

It's been such a fun week.

It's my day to share my blooms
and
I made this pillow to remind me of this blog hop.


Just a little fusible applique with
on a background of white to go with my farmhouse decor .

I've hosted a few hops, but this is definitely one of my favorites.
The inspiration and sweet flowers have been awesome.



I made another pillow cover to go with my bloom pillow.


This one was made just like these pillow covers that were created for a tutorial for Thermoweb
and a 
spring quilt market display for Anna Griffin Fabric.



They are super soft because you use 
in the ruffle to create dimension and softness.
The ruffles in these large blooms are super simple with the technique in the pattern.

The full free tutorial is on the ThermOWeb blog click - Here
and
You can download the free PDF pattern from my Craftsy pattern store HERE.

I decided to make a pieced pillow cover too.


The design is my own and I plan on using it in a quilt too.
Stay tuned for that...

And here are my new blooming pillow cushions.



Here is the schedule for today:

Today - Friday, June 15th

Your projects are great! I especially love the flower quilted below the butterfly on the pillow. I also liked the sunflower table runner that Susan showed, sunflowers are a favorite of mine.

Love your pillows too, Thank you so much for the availability of the patterns.
I'm actually going to take some time to make these for myself. Charlene at Just Because had an adorable quilt that is high up on my lists of favorites too. There so many great projects this time around. Had a great time and made a couple of new friends too boot. Thank you so much for making this happen.

I like your flower pillow. Will have to make that for my Granddaughter's bed.

Your amazing! I love your bloomin pillows, especially the one with the big ruffled flower on it. A great time was had by all on this hop. Thanks for hosting once again!

Charlene McCain said...

All of your projects are beautiful, but my favorite is the flower and butterfly pillow. That would make the cutest quilt for a young girl's room. The ruffled flower pillow is a winner, too! Thank you, Carla, for hosting this fun and fabulous hop! All the bright colors and inspiring projects have been wonderful.

Susan said...

What incredibly fun pillows! They are a great reminder of this fun hop - thanks again for hosting!

Danette Stankovich said...

Your pillows are so beautiful! You can enjoy them all this Summer! Thanks so much for letting me participate in this Blooming Flowers blog hop!

Susan said...

Thank YOU for a super fun week! Thanks for organizing us. I never would have guessed there were so many cute designs out there! Your pillows are adorable. I think the ruffled one, especially, will pop up all over the quilt world this summer! Thanks for the giveaway, too.

Scrapatches said...

These are beautiful pillows, Carla! You are sew creative and such an eye for design and color. Amazing! Thank you for sharing. Thanks you, also, for hosting this wonderful blog hop ... sew inspiring! .... :-) Pat

Suze said...

Carla, This has been a fun hop. Each day was as great as the previous day. The good times just kept rolling. The inspiration was delightful. I adore your pillows. I had not seen the ruffle technique. These hops always bring new techniques to this old dog of a quilter. Thanks for hosting the hop. I can only imagine all the hard work you and all the participants exude behind the scenes. You can put another A+ in the book and be very proud. I had a wonderful time just oogling all the hard work of all the participants and wishing some, no all, the projects were mine. Thanks again. Susan

Those teeny tiny hexi flowers on Den syende himmel takes the cake today!!! Your pillow with the flower made with fusible fleece is on my must make list for my guest room as soon as I return to AZ this fall. It's fabulous!! Thanks for the pattern. I hope you do this hop again next year. Put me on the list! Thanks, Karen

Martina said...

Love your pillows so much! And I am sure this pattern will be a great addition to a quilt!I really loved the sunflowers today! Thanks for this fun blog hop!

tubakk said...

Great pillows, and my favorite is that last one. Thanks for all fun you brought us this week. I have some plans for some of the ideas I got here. And I even plan to make more rhododendron hot pads. They were so fun to make.

Laura said...

Love the flowers in the pots on the Justbecause blog.
Thank you so much for hosting this fun and inspiration blog hop.

Kay said...

Carla - Thanks for hosting such a fun hop. All of the bloggers shared some wonderful projects. It made for a very cheerful week. Lots of ideas and "to be made" projects. You did a great job hosting this.

LJ said...

Flowers always take center stage, I think, but it was the best to see all the flowery projects that others shared. Thanks, too, for your organizational abilities.

Wonderful pillows - all 3 are different but totally cute. Carla Henton's design was lovely but I particularly liked your 'bloom' pillow.

Kathy @ Kwilty Pleasures said...

Blooming awesome!

Nancy said...

As usual, such clever things you design. Look forward to seeing the quilt.Great hop.

Carol S. said...

So many beautiful blooming pillows...love them all!

Kathy E. said...

My favorite project for the final day's hop is Tubakk's trio of red flowers inspired by her hydrangeas. I love that she made them with no pattern and simply free sewing...they are gorgeous! Thank you, Carla, for hosting this blog hop. I really enjoyed participating and following along to see so many beautiful creations!

Rose-Marie said...

I love the Bloom applique pillow, I was looking to see a tutorial.

Sherry said...

Love your pillows! Thanks for the hop it was fun to see the projects. I still have several to visit but I enjoyed joining in.

Brenda said...

Hello Carla; Each one of your pillows are fabulous! I look forward to trying each one of them myself. I am still trying to catch up on the couple of days of the blog hop that I missed. Flowers are beautiful and reduce stress quickly so not only do I grow them, buy fabrics with lovely prints on them of flowers, I also create all kinds of projects with flower designs. It appears from all of the terrific comments that this is the feelings of everyone, you may want to consider making this a yearly Blog Hop. Thank you for putting it all together. Have a superb day!

SherryB said...

SOOOO much fun, and so many ideas....thanks so much!

Needled Mom said...

Those are fabulous-especially the big fluffy flower one.

Joy from Days Filled With Joy said...
