Good morning everyone! Today I have a super fun giveaway for all of you sewers and quilters out there! I’m partnering with Lori from Stitches ‘n Giggles to offer you all a Gooseberry by Vanessa Goertzen Fat Quarter Bundle! Whoo Hoo!!
I have to say that this line is probably one of my most favorite lines this year! I love the bright colors, they’re just so cheery and lovely. I’ve already made a few projects with this line because I just couldn’t wait!
I made this cute patchwork quilted book cover using a Moda 2.5” mini-charm pack of Gooseberry. It was super easy, and turned out really cute. You can make your own too, just check out my Patchwork Book Cover tutorial on YouTube!
I also couldn’t wait to get started on this super cute Gone Surfin’ quilt block by Thimble Blossoms.
I thought the Gooseberry line would be perfect for this one, and I ended up making a bunch of cute little slug bug blocks with colorful surf boards on top!
I did a large meandering pattern for the quilting, then used the Gooseberry Pinwheels in Petal Pink for the binding.
For the backing I used the moda Gooseberry Cloud Bouquet print. This is one of my favorite prints in the line, and it worked perfectly for the backing!
And here’s the finished quilt. I did small 9-patch corner stones for fun , then did a few top and bottom borders to get the quilt to the right size.
