Have I got a treat for you. Cherie from You & Mie is here for Yellow day!
Although Cherie is fairly new on the blogging scene, you have probably already seen her make guest appearances all over blog land. This girl is oozing with sewing talent and creativity. She has the CUTEST little girl named Yuki, who she designs the prettiest clothes for.
Her projects always make me ooh and ahh. Her creations are unique and her workmanship is top notch. If you don't follow her already, you must!
I have never had the desire to take up quilting, but the project she is sharing today is enticing me to change my mind.
Hello color lovers! I'm Cherie from you & mie and I can't tell you how excited I am to be guest posting on Delia's blog and for Color Your Summer, no less! This has got to be one of the most fun series out there - I mean, you can't go wrong with SUMMER and COLOR - they are two of my favorite things.
When I think of summer, I think of picnics. When the sun is out, I guarantee that my family will be out at the beach or park with some food and drink to soak up the beautiful weather. It's one of my absolute favorite activities. So this summer I wanted to create a new picnic blanket to celebrate the start of picnic season.
In the past we've had a few store bought picnic blankets that we loved for their portability, but they weren't well made and would start to rip or fall apart after a year. I wanted to create something that was sturdy and easy to carry around, but had the look and feel of a homemade quilt. So I made, what I call, the Sunburst Picnic Blanket.
It is a quilted blanket with a duck cloth bottom. It folds up nicely and is secured with velcro and has a handle for easy carrying.
This tutorial is now available on Cherie's site: You & Mie. Go HERE to check it out!
Oh my...isn't Yuki a doll?
And the blanket, is down right gorgeous.
I love the sunburst quilt top and the easy fold up design.
Thank you for coloring our summer Cherie!
