Bari J. Ackerman & Pattern Giveaway


Let me introduce you to Bari J. Ackerman! She’s a fantastic fabric designer, quilting queen, sewing fanatic, embroidery whiz and all around creative gal!

Bari is one of my favorite fabric designers because she uses lots and lots of happy colors and flowers.  You can’t go wrong with that!  Her fabric makes me want to conquer my quilt making fears.


I keep finding myself lost on her blog long enough to realize that I had to share it with all of you.  You know how it is when your coffee gets cold because you forgot you had it…or maybe that just happens to me. Ha!  Well, this is a blog that will do that to you!

When you visit Bari’s blog full of beautiful photos you’ll get a peek at her upcoming fabric line {Paris Apartment}, and don’t miss the office chair from Target that she covered for herself! You will want to make one instantly!

Here are a few more things you might not know about Bari…


Bari’s book was released at the beginning of this year and the photos are so inspiring!  You can get your own copy on from her online store.


While you’re waiting for your book to arrive you can make another project.  She’ll show you how to make a Garden Party Quilt that’s out-of-this-world beautiful!

You can find all of these one-of-a-kind creations in her store.  I keep going back to see her latest designs and dream about having a different one for every day of the week.
