Today we get to participate in our friend Melissa’s fabric tour.
Melissa is the create mind behind The Polka Dot Chair and we are lucky enough to have been friends for years now. In fact, I remember a lunch conversation years ago where talked about how cool it would be to be able to design fabric…so how lucky do we feel now to design fabric for the same company and be able to create projects using each others designs!?! Most days it still doesn’t seem real….
Melissa’s newest fabric line is called Safari Party and is produced by Riley Blake Designs.
When I saw it I knew I wanted to use some to sew up our Saturday Afternoon Quilt Pattern with it…and I’m glad I did! I really love how the fun prints are showcased against the white sashing.
One of the many things I envy about Melissa is that she is a world traveler…literally this girl is always on the move!
And this line is based off of an African Safari that she went on with her family! (An African Safari!!! Who gets to do things like that!?! How incredible!)
The fabric comes in different color waves (all with a little gold sparkle!) but the blues and greens are my favorite!!!
Thanks Melissa for inviting us to be part of your fabric tour…as always it was our pleasure.
Here’s to many more years of fun fabric!
