Have you ever sewn for a Blog Tour? For those of you that are like wait..., what's a Blog Tour, it’s basically hosted by an individual who asks their sewing friends or puts out a open call for makers to be apart of creating a cool project that will later be shared on the makers blog on the day they are given. Well, I am super excited to share with you that Mister Domestic ( a.k.a Mathew Boudreaux) has just wrapped up a jaw dropping Loved to Pieces Blog PARTY!!! Why have a normal “Blog Tour” when you can turn it into a party!? His party started on July 16th and came to an end on August 10th. Twenty- Two amazing makers took part in this event making a project with Mister Domestic’s debut collection for AGF called Loved to Pieces! I am so happy to recap all the great projects that were made, sit back and enjoy all the projects made with Loved to Pieces Fabric!
Neighbors Quilt designed by Amanda Woodruff of A Crafty Fox
To start off the party Amanda from A Crafty Fox created this stunning quilt! I loved reading her blog post where she describes the process of the creation of this quilt. She talks about her quilt not coming out how she initially sketched it out to be and how the creative process sometimes takes you in a different direction that you didn't expect but turns out even better than you planned! Head over to her post and read about how this quilt got its name! Such an inspiring post!
Endless Summer Tablerunner by Sharon Holland of Sharon Holland Designs
Another one of our amazing designers Sharon Holland, made this super fresh and modern looking table runner called Endless Summer. She has a created a great step by step tutorial that's super easy to follow.
If you haven’t had the pleasure of sewing a project made by Sharon your in for a real treat. She is impeccable with her pattern writing and I always feel confident when sewing up her patterns.
Angela Wolf may have just created the perfect summer outfit! Using the “Gladiolumns DeepBluem” rayon print from Loved to Pieces Fabrics she sewed up the Kate Skirt Pattern with a cute basic tank made with AGF Solid Knit to go with. This tank and skirt combo is so flattering and a great addition to your wardrobe in the last few hot weeks of summer!
How cute are these two!? Brittany Jones used the “Striped Flow Rainbow” print and sewed up the cutest dresses for her and her little one! I looooove the extra details she added to her dress with the crossgrain stripes at the bottom, the great snap embellishments and the tie straps creates a nice delicate touch!
I am such a fan of all of Sharon McConnell’s quilts and the Eclipse Quilt is definitely no exception. If you are like me and scared of sewing patterns with curved pieces don’t worry! Sharon has created the Classic Curve Ruler’s which caters to fast, easy and accurate cutting. Head over to her blog for tips and tricks on sewing curves!
Sew Box sewn by Elina Temmes of Elina Temmes
Elina went wild and created such a great assortment of projects for the Loved to Pieces Blog Party! Head over to her Instagram to check out all of her makes! Two of my faves has to be the Sew Box she created to store all her sewing essentials! I love the star detail on the top of the case and how she selected the “Striped Flow Rainbow” print for the sides of the box.
Another one of my faves is definitely this hexie zipper pouch! I loved how she fussy cutted so many great designs from various prints from the Loved to Pieces Collections.
Meghan Buchanan made a great throw version of her Ferry Crossing quilt pattern showcasing the “Anthonem Serene” print! This low volume beauty is so refreshing and inviting. Head over to Meghan’s blog to see more fun photos of the Ferry Crossing Quilt. As I was visiting her blog I came across a fun sew along she is hosting with her Ghost Quilt Pattern which I thought was pretty darn cute and I am always on the lookout for new sew alongs! :)
Scallop Quilt by Nicole Daksiewicz of Modern Handcraft
Ever sew a scallop quilt before? I haven’t and I am loving the look of Nicole’s Quilt, can’t wait for the release of her new pattern August 14th! She mixed white and blue prints from Loved to Pieces with a great shade of AGF Solid Denim and I am really loving the placement of color! Head to her blog to check out the cute last min pillow she embellished with leftover scraps of fabric!
Cristy sewed up such a chic looking tote with the “Mandala Drops Midnight” print for the exterior and “Pieced Bunches Cool” to give the lining a pop of color. Definitely won’t have to worry about losing your items in this tote with it’s nice roomy zipper and slip pocket. Head over to her blog to check out the cute hardware’s she incorporated into her bag.
If your a flying geese fan like me there is no doubt you aren’t going to fall in love with Kate’s Luminescent Quilt! She had a blast fussing cutting the florals from the “ Anthomen Festive” print and I love how this fabric pops when being surrounded by the bright pinks of the “Efflorescent Fuchsia” print.
Courtney Davis made the Shoreline Boat Neck pattern with a cute little twist! The bows she added to the ends of the sleeves are so adorable and creates a fun, feminine touch. She sewed up this great top in the “Efflorescent Celeste” knit fabric which is just the prettiest shade of pale blue.
Open Back Top by Mimi Goodwin of Mimi G Style
This tank is truly a must make and has been added to my to sew list! The open back is pretty cute, I could also see making a bunch of spaghetti straps and filling in the open space with a strappy look! AGF has a great assortment of Rayon Solids and prints but the “Gladiolumns Deepbluem” rayon print has quickly become one of my all time faves and looks gorgeous made up in this tank!
Lone Star Quilt by Kim Niedzwiecki of Go Go Kim
Kim has created such a stunning Lone Star Quilt with the blue, green and white prints from Loved to Pieces fabrics. Placement of fabrics are key to creating a successful Lone Star Quilt and I can definitely say Kim did a phenomenal job! Head over to her post to hear about her quilt photography adventure! :)

Karen new right away she wanted to create a EPP project with Loved to Pieces Fabrics because... yep, you guessed it, it’s absolutely amazing fussy cutting possibilities.

“Kid Sized” Quilt by Tracy Martin of Tracy Bug Creative
Loved to Pieces fabric is inspired by Mathew’s daughter Helena and her love for flowers, which is why Tracy decided to create a quilt with Helena’s name on it! This heart warming quilt I am sure will be loved and cherished for years to come!

Maureen Cracknell is another one of our fabulous fabric designers at AGF and like always I am blown away by her project! She is famous for making the cutest Quilt-As- You- Go zipper pouches. If you haven’t made one before head over to her blog but I warn you these cute lil pouches are addicting, probably because they come together so quickly. She ended up making 20 of them, the pictures in her post all definitely drool worthy!
Kylie made the cutest little bag for Mathew’s daughter Helena with the bright bold pink from “Efflorescent Fuchsia” for the flap and AGF Solid Smooth denim for the front and oh boy it just pops!
