Freda's Hive Fat Quarter Bundle from Donna's Lavender Nest and Sunshine Block from Riley Blake Tutorials

14 comments
Thanks to everyone that left a comment last week in the giveaway and contrats to the winner of fabric from Donna's Lavender Nest.  The Freda's Hive Fat Quarter Bundle will go to heartsease54.  She commented "Those are probably the exact fabrics I would have picked! How did you know?".  I emailed her and she will receive the fat quarter bundle from Donna and a little package from me.  Donna has the custom fat quarter bundle up on her website if anyone is interested in getting a little bit of fun fabric for themselves.
Donna sent me the Freda's Hive bundle and I've been playing a bit with it over the long weekend.  Donna also included the cute cherry fabric on the right side. Sew cute.  I wanted to do a tutorial with the fabric bundle showing what I had planned to make using the fabrics.  I decided there are so many fantastic tutorials out there available to all of us for free, that I settled on using a great block I found from Jina and Cindy at Riley Blake.  The block is the Sunshine Block.  You can find the pattern here.  And you can view Jina and Cindy's video tutorial here.  I like the play of 2 pinwheels inside a star block.
Instead of white fabric, as suggested in the tutorial, I used Pam's  PKM Love's Bouquet print.  I used the very last of this fabric from my stash.  I think it makes the perfect compliment to the Freda's Hive fabric picks.  
I had a good time making the Sunshine blocks.  It was fun to switch up fabric in different places in the block. I was excited to use Lori's new fabric, too.







I don't know which one is my favorite block yet.  Thanks so much to Donna for letting me do this giveaway and creating my own fat quarter pack.  It was really fun to read everyone's comments.  I hope you like the fabrics I picked out.

I love the background fabric you chose! My favorite color scheme is your red star with the aqua pinwheel. It seems to be the brightest one!
