Fabri-Quilt New Block Blog Hop and Giveaway



Sorry that I have been fairly absent from posting lately. Life has been crazy busy! Plus, I have been somewhat-secretly working on designing a block and a tutorial for the Fabri-Quilt New Block Blog Hop. This is my first experience designing a block, so I really hope you guys like it! It is also my first real tutorial… so if you have feedback or find any mistakes please let me know. The great thing about my block though, is that you can put anything you want in the center… if you make a block, I would really love to see a photo!

You can see the block and tutorial in this post.

For full details on the challenge we were presented with, checkout Quilting Jetgirl’s post about it. Basically though, we were each generously provided with a fat eighth bundle of six colors from Fabri-Quilt’s Prairie Cloth Solids line. The bundle became dubbed “Watermelon Summer.” The challenge was to create a 12.5″ (unfinished) summer-inspired block using at least three of the colors in the bundle. The completed blocks will be mailed to the blog hop hosts who will assemble them into charity quilts.

This is the last day for the blog hop. I knew that between my crazy busy schedule, making a quilt for my mother in law, wrapping up my Under the Veranda quilt, my daughter’s birthday, and mundane life I would need all the time I could get… so I requested the last day. But the brighter side to that is that now you can follow the links and see everyone’s blocks without waiting! And there are tons of great blocks. I mean it, some of these blocks are so awesome that I just might have to make a quilt using them.


Over sixty bloggers participated in this blog hop! You can find a complete list below. If you would like to enter a giveaway for a 1/2 yard bundle of Watermelon Summer, be sure to visit each day’s blog host.
