Burlap Brights Block Hop & Giveaway!

Hi everyone!

Today, I’m participating in the Burlap Brights Block Hop sponsored by Benartex at Sew in Love {with fabric}.

burlap brights hop


They sent me a fat quarter bundle of some of their latest Burlap Brights fabric collection. These fabrics are rich in color and texture.  We were asked to make a 12 1/2″ (unfinished) block using some, or all, of the 6 colors that were sent.  I had a great time coming up with my block.  I’m calling it Rainbow Geese Rotation.  (I’m not very clever when it comes to names).  It looks like a rainbow of flying geese rotating around the sun.  It’s simple and fun to make (really)!
