Sanibel Blog Hop

Today is the last day of the Sanibel Blog Hop! Sanibel is a new Moda fabric line designed by Gina Martin.Sanibel-LogoI don’t know about  you, but all of this beautiful weather and flowers coming into bloom gets me in the mood for summer. This fun and colorful fabric is just what I need to add a little summer color to my house! I love the variety of playful prints. Gina included some very graphic prints like the lawn chair webbing, Adirondack chairs, circles and sunglasses. There are also some more organic prints like the large scale floral and a small scale floral.

I  have a video tutorial up on my youtube channel.sanibel pillow orangeI will be adding more videos to the series that will include how to quilt the block with a walking foot and how to make the pillow cover using an invisible zipper.sanibel pillow orange closeI love this fabric line so much that I couldn’t stop at throw pillows! I had to start a quilt. I was hoping to have it well underway by now, but life keeps getting in the way! Here’s where I am so far. I’m hoping to have some time to dedicate to it by the end of the month, so stay tuned!
