Quilty Fun Blog Hop ~ Flowers ~ and a Give Away!

I am so thrilled to be a part of the Quilty Fun Blog Hop.  Quilty Fun is a wonderful book written by the uber talented Lori Holt.  It is filled with wonderful quilts as well as projects including a cushion, table runner and sewing machine cover.
The Sew Along is to make the sampler quilt pictured above using Lori Holt's  first book, Quilty Fun. The Sew Along project uses instructions from Quilty Fun, so you will need a book on hand to participate!  You can get your copy at the Fat Quarter Shop

To help you with cutting, Fat Quarter shop created a handy PDF companion.  You can find right here.

I had so much fun making the flowers for the blog hop!  They are so easy to put together and just what I needed to brighten a gray day ~ I am ready for Spring and these flower blocks are so Springy!  I used Lori Holt's fabric "Bake Sale" for the Blue flower, and the red flower is "Flower Sugar" by Lecien.  The Stems are from Yuwa Fabrics 30's Collection by Atsuko Mastuyama, the leaves are Glamping by Moda and the Background fabric is Essential Dots by Moda ~ my favorite polka dot fabric!

I am also sharing a give away!  Two winners  will win a 2.5” Rolie Polie of Vintage Happy fabric. 

One winner will win a packet of Alphabitties great for marking your cut fabric stacks when quilting.  

The three winners will be chosen from the pool of submissions on the Flickr group and will be announced on the Jolly Jabber on Monday March 25th.

Be sure to post a picture of your Quilty Fun quilt block(s) in the Flickr group for a chance to win!

Good Luck and Happy Sewing!
