Sanibel Blog Hop (and layer cake giveaway!)



Good morning! Today I get to help kick off the Sanibel blog hop. It's going to be a great week! Sanibel is a new collection by Gina Martin for Moda. Packed with luscious color and graphic patterns, it screams summer and makes me want a fruity umbrella drink!

Once again, Gina has included some prints every quilter will want to add to their stash.



The lawn chair basket weave is cool, and these chairs are fab! I chose three of my favorite prints and made a pool bag!


 They are fast and easy to make, and a great way to show off your favorite fabrics!
 Click here to go to the tutorial!


We are giving one lucky reader a Layer Cake of Sanibel! Use the rafflecopter widget below to enter. Winner will be drawn on Sunday April 12th, and contacted via email. Please make sure I have a way to reach you!

Beth said...

Quilty had a cute pattern to make a quilt that resembled a Delectable Mountain & was made with a layer cake--all the angles came from cutting, not from sewing. This would be a fun way to try it out.
