Sliding Geese Mini, and a Giveaway

Good morning, friends!  Today, it's my turn on the Sew In Love With Fabric Summer Mini blog hop, and I'm so excited to share this little mini quilt with you, featuring the Patio Splash fabric collection.


These particular prints from the collection are called Color Strokes, and they are absolutely gorgeous.  They have the perfect amount of texture for when you are looking for fabrics that are almost solid, but not quite, which makes them extremely versatile.  They are so saturated and fun, and are perfectly summery!

I decided to design a mini quilt using flying geese, a classic quilting building block, but give it some interest by varying the sizes to create the sliding effect.



I have written a full tutorial for this mini, making it super easy!  Be sure to head over to Sew In Love With Fabric to check it out the full tutorial.  But before you go, I'm thrilled to let you know that Benartex is offering a fat quarter bundle of these luscious fabrics as a giveaway, so take a second to enter.


Just leave a single comment on this post to enter the giveaway.  I'll announce the winner at next week's Needle and Thread Thursday post (5/24).

By the way, and I also have FOUR other amazing giveaways going on right now which also run through next Wednesday evening.  To enter those as well, just head over HERE to check them out.

All of these giveaways have ended, and I'll announce the winners this afternoon in my NTT post!

Good luck to all, and happy (almost) summer!
