Watermelon Summer New Block Blog Hop: Day 2

Welcome back! 

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 Ann, 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 1 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 Saturday, September 5th 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 Cheryl's blog.
