Sewing Pattern Blog Tour: Maureen from Maureen Cracknell Handmade

To kick off week 2 of The Cottage Mama Sewing Patterns blog tour, we have the super-talented Maureen from Maureen Cracknell Handmade.  I met Maureen through the Riley Blake Designs Project Design Team.  We are part of the few on the team that live outside of Utah and we just instantly became online blogging buddies.  While she focuses more on quilting and I’m more into clothing, we can both relate with our love of combining patterned fabrics and bold color. 

I was so excited when Maureen accepted the invitation to be part of this tour.  She chose to sew up the Charlotte Apron Dress, which I think is a great choice for her.  The Charlotte offers many ways to combine patterned fabrics and has some great basic sewing techniques (i.e. gathering, lined bodice and buttonholes).  This was actually the first dress she’s sewn and I think I might have gotten her hooked on sewing clothing.  She has certainly inspired me in the world of artistic quilting. 

Head over to Maureen’s blog to view more pictures of her version of the Charlotte Apron Dress and enter to win your very own copy of a Cottage Mama Sewing Pattern.  While you’re there, poke around her blog, you are sure to be inspired!
