Safari Moon Blog Hop


Hello, friends!

Today's my stop on the Safari Moon Blog Hop & I'm so excited to share my project. Frances Newcombe, Art Gallery Fabrics designer, and I first met at International Quilt Market in Houston, Texas last fall. I was instantly drawn to her use of color & pattern, but especially her wonderful personality -- she's the sweetest! Safari Moon is Frances' first collection with Art Gallery Fabrics and it really is beautiful. Rich, vibrant colors paired with African inspired designs -- I just love it!

I chose to pair four prints from the Safari Moon line with a crisp white solid & my Starburst mini quilt pattern. You can find the pattern in my shop! And guess what?! I've put together a mini quilt kit so you can make one, too! 

GIVEAWAY -- Enter to win a complete kit & pattern to make a Starburst mini quilt top just like mine! To enter, just leave a comment below telling me your favorite color. I'll pick a winner on Friday, March 14th at 5pm CST.
