Wonderlust Virtual Trunk Show + Blog Hop Day 2

Today we're continuing to show what you can do with Paula Nadelstern's Wonderlust fabric. We're starting out with a virtual trunk show of quilts made by Paula and some of her quilting friends. Keep scrolling through the trunk show to find a sneak peek at today's blog hop tutorial by Sandra Walker of mmm Quilts! 

Virtual Trunk Show: 
"Thumbnails" designed and sewn by Paula Nadelstern.
"I made this quilt, THUMBNAILS, to showcase little vignettes of perfect pattern from the 12 fabrics in my new WONDERLUST collection. This 36” square quilt is really different for me. I'm a piecer and had to learn how to fuse and machine applique. 3” square motifs and 1 ¼” space between squares. Note the corner treatment. Fused and machine appliqued to whole cloth piece of Marbella Black. I made a 3” square from see-through Visigrid with the sewing lines, than marked a quarter of an inch seam allowance so I knew which portion of the pattern would be in the final 3” square." 

How much fun would it be to fussy cut all these squares! So many great motifs to choose from. 

"Wonderlust Love" by Peggy Trues
With the light blue background, this quilt looks completely different from the quilts with black backgrounds!

"Butterfly Ballet" by Peggy True
Fussy-cut butterfly wings made from the various prints in the collection.

Today Sandra from mmm Quilts is here sharing her kaleidoscope version of the Tapestry print. She's made it into a stunning pillow. Head over to her blog to see how she did it and find out how you can win a bundle of Wonderlust fabrics. 

Here's Sandra:
When I saw Paula Nadelstern’s new line of fabric, Wonderlust, as a choice for an upcoming blog hop for Benartex I was ecstatic. I knew immediately that I’d use it for kaleidoscopes. What these kaleidoscopes would grow up to be I wasn’t sure, but fabric this delicious could be nothing else in my world. 

Be sure to follow along for all 4 days of our Wonderlust blog hop!
