Watermelon Summer New Block Blog Hop: Day 1

Are you ready for a great week? 
We are!

We're excited to be sponsoring a blog hop this week featuring our Prairie Cloth Solids, featuring more than 60 bloggers. Each blogger will be sharing a block they've created using a six-fabric bundle of solids. 
And of course, no blog hop is complete without giveaways--over the course of the hop, you'll have eight chances to win a 1/2 yard bundle of the blog hop's color palette (the only hard part will be deciding which blocks to make!). 




This block hop was organized by four lovely hosts: Yvonne, Cheryl, Stephanie, and Terri, who also selected this refreshing color palette, aptly named "Watermelon Summer." Thanks, ladies! 



The hop runs for four days--Monday through Thursday--and each day you'll have a chance to enter to win a six-fabric bundle (the colors shown above plus white) both here at Inspired by Fabric and on the blog of the day's host.


Here's today's line-up--visit them all for block inspiration!


Find the links from Day 2 here.
Find the links from Day 3 here.
Find the links from Day 4 here.

For a chance to win a 1/2 yard bundle of the Watermelon Summer Palette of our Prairie Cloth Solids, make sure you're signed up to follow Inspired by Fabric (either through a blog reader or via email; see options on the right-hand sidebar). Leave a comment letting us know that you follow and letting us know which of today's featured blocks you like best. This giveaway is open through Friday, September 4th at 11:59 pm EST. We will announce winners for all of the hop's giveaways after Labor Day. 
You'll have another chance to win a bundle today over at Yvonne's blog.

  48. I liked so many of the blocks, especially duck duck goose, regatta, summer starburst, and rowing paddle. I think my favorite was the first one called notched. It is such a simple block but looks so amazingly complicated once it is put together. It'll make a lot of people scratch their heads and say "how is that one made?" Thanks for the block hop!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Fun! I follow by email and on Facebook.

    I love so many of the blocks, but The Picnic Pinwheel by Patch the Giraffe is cute. Thanks.

  62. Am following with Slick RSS blog reader... my current favorite of the blocks is the Rowing Paddle Block. I also like Art Deco Summer, Notched and Picnic pinwheel.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I follow you through Blogger's Dashboard. There were so many wonderful blocks today that it was almost impossible to make a choice. In the end, I went with Summer Cabana by Andrea at The Sewing Fools because of its simplicity (we need to keep summer simple), its amazing transformation into a sparkling quilt, and its close (in my mind) adherence to the "watermelon" feel of the fabric group.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I loved the notched block. I follow you via e-mail and Facebook. Thank you so much for the inspiration and the hop.

    ReplyDelete
