Burlap Brights Blog Hop and Giveaway!

Update: The giveaway is now closed -- thank you to all who entered!

Today I am guest posting over at Sew in Love with Fabric as a part of Benartex's Burlap Brights Blog Hop!  Welcome to any new visitors coming over from the blog hop -- I hope you stay a while!


Benartex sent me a mini bundle of six fat quarters of their new line of Burlap Brights fabrics to design a block as a part of their blog hop (which started Monday and runs through the 21st!). While I am not a big fan of burlap in the traditional sense, I definitely liked working with these fabrics!


I decided to design a rainbow star and it draws inspiration from two of my favorite blocks -- Ohio star and weathervane!


Here's the whole schedule of who is participating and links to their "home" blogs -- I can't wait to see Jessica's block! 

Burlap Brights Block Hop Schedule:
May 11: Chris from Made by ChrissieD
May 12: Mary from Mary on Lake Pulaski
May 13: Alison from Little Bunny Quilts
May 14: Debby from Debby Kratovil Quilts
May 15: Kristen from KD Quilts
May 16: Benartex design team
May 17: Stephanie from Stitched Together Studios
May 18: Julie from The Crafty Quilter
May 19: Cynthia from Quilting Is More Fun than Housework
May 20: Jessica from Quilty Habit
May 21: Wendy from Ivory Spring

And now for the fun part! I get to give away a bundle of 6 fat quarters of the Burlap Brights to one lucky reader!

  51. Alison,
    Laguna . Orange too, as those are a great combo to my eyes:)
    Love your rainbow Star Block, it is magnificent.

    Tell your husband thank you for serving. We honor and respect him for his profession. My husband is a L.E.O also.
    I hope your hub has had an opportunity to partake in the memorial runs or rides /events during National Police Memorial Week this week.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Love the color combination you chose for this star. I love the yellow you used in your block, along with the orange and red. Wonderfully rustic looking.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Wow! Your block is stunning. I love following blog hops when I have time because it seems I will always see something I never would have thought of myself. I don't think I would have combined the two blocks as you have with this one. I love the center of your block. And these colors are awesome. I've never used or seen the burlap fabrics but would love to because all I think of when I hear burlap is that stuff from my childhood that had such a horrible smell. I'm sure this is not the case with these.

    My favorite of the new brights is the Grape, but I really am drawn to the Denim. The Denim looks like it would be fun to use in quilts too.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I thought I was already a follower of your blog because I had followed along with your Starburst Quilt Along a couple years ago. I wonder if the Google Friend Connect was still working back then and that's how I followed because I just subscribed via email and it accepted me rather than to give the results that I'm already subscribed. But, as I said, I'm subscribed now via email.

  55. Love your block! I would say my favorite color is Solid Burlap Sun. I just love that bright yellow color.

  56. Some lovely colours but grape stands out for me!
