An Abstract Garden Star is Born (with Giveaway!)

It’s safe to say that I’m drawn to bright colors. Way back, when I was taking a class with a Famous Quilter, who is also Very Nice, said that my color choices were “cheerful”. Having seen the types of fabrics I gravitate to when I do add to my stash, that is still an accurate statement.

It’s no wonder, then, that I really love Christa Watson‘s fabric lines; her most recent one, Abstract Garden, debuted at Quilt Market last fall (when our show did, too!), and we got to pitch in at her schoolhouse session and generally hobnob with her. Christa is really good about creating a focal print with lots of other basics that coordinate across all her lines with Benartex. And she doesn’t forget the value of value, which makes it easy to make a quilt entirely from her fabric line and still get contrast like in our 10″ square precut pattern A Star is Born, which also debuted at Market in her fabric line.

We were excited to be offered a chance at the Bernatex Sew in Love with Fabric blog hop for her line, and are happy to offer a giveaway for a FQ bundle of 8-10 of the fabrics, too!  The giveaway is limited to the United States only, so we appreciate your understanding on that.

Enter the giveaway on our site below by Saturday evening, Feb 16, and visit the other bloggers in the blog hop for more chances to win!
