Meadow Dance Blog Hop {Pocket Hanger Tutorial and Giveaway}

Update: The giveaway is now closed and the winner noted below! Please stop back on 9/29/17 for another giveaway!

Today I am sharing a new project tutorial featuring Meadow Dance by Amanda Murphy on the Sew In Love With Fabric blog! As I might have mentioned before, Amanda Murphy is probably my favorite designer so I feel so lucky to be able to participate in another one of her blog hops with Benartex!


I decided to challenge myself to make something new and am very happy with the results! Rather than being a pieced and quilted project, this project uses quilted sections to build a rather simple wall hanging with pockets!


While I made this with bright cheerful fabrics, it would be a great way to make a Christmas card holder as well! It's easy to start with this basic shape and modify it for whatever purpose you desire - you could modify this with smaller pockets to hold jewelry or larger pockets for sorting paperwork.


You can check out the full tutorial at Sew In Love With Fabric, but before you do, enter to win a fat quarter bundle of Meadow Dance!


To enter:

1. Leave a comment on the blog telling me your favorite print from the Meadow Dance collection! Mine is the Garden Path in grey that I used for the binding.

2. Leave a second comment if you follow me (blog, Facebook, Instagram) or if you share a link to this post on social media (of any form!)

Two entries maximum per person, giveaway will close Sunday, September 25th at midnight! Good luck!

The giveaway is now closed and Lelia is our winner!



Today is the first stop on the hop, and there will be three more posts (and three more giveaways!) so don't forget to visit the other bloggers on their days!

Tuesday: Alison @ Little Bunny Quilts
Wednesday: Benartex blog design team
Thursday: Sandra @ Mmm Quilts
Friday: Chris @ made by ChrissieD

Also sharing at Linky Tuesday and Finish It Up Friday!
