Welcome to day six of the month long Jaftex blog hop! Never heard of Jaftex? It's the parent company of some of my favorite fabrics: Sudioe, Blank Quilting and Henry Glass fabrics.
Jaftex is celebrating it's 85th anniversary in style, with an amazing blog hop and giveaways each step of the way, as well as some really awesome grand prizes. (See below on how to win!)
30 bloggers were given a bundle of fabric with the directions: make something. Easy enough!
This is the bundle I received from the Fusion Illusion line from Blank Quilting.
As soon as I saw the bundle I started thinking of a rainbow quilt. And since I'm on a bit of a wedge kick right now, I decided to combine the two.
Here's my quilt Roy. (Named after my dad, and a nod to Roy G Biv!)
|A little grainy. My photographer neglected to take any close ups.|
|Here's a better photo. Ignore the water pump in the foreground.|
|Here's a close up of the quilting. My guild-mates from the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild will be shocked that I chose variegated thread! Quilted by Maria O'Haver.|
This quilt came together really quickly! I really love the results. I'm thinking of writing it up as a pattern. If you're interested, be sure to sign up for my newsletter on the side bar. You'll be the first to know when it's ready.
So, on to the giveaway! Would you like to win a bundle of Fusion Illusion?
Just leave me a comment below. What would you make with this awesome bundle? For an extra chance, follow me on Instagram or Facebook, then come back here and let me know that you do. (Sorry, US only please. However, if you're the winner and international, I'll send you a download of my Subway Art and a pattern. Deal?)
