My Day For The Benartex Home Grown Blog Hop

Benartex has a new line of fabric, Home Grown by Nancy Halvorsen, that is so beautiful. 
I feel so lucky to have been able to join this blog hop and sew with Home Grown!


It has a panel with the cutest designs and sayings on them, too.  I used four of the sections 
of the panel in my quilt , 20 fat quarters, and two different fabrics for borders and binding.

Shine, Love, Create
Quilt measures 42" x 52"


The panel


The fat quarters and yardage I used



Birds, houses, and flowers...cute!


Such a pretty heart of flowers in this panel!

Carol, that is such a cute quilt! What a fun panel to work with. You’ve cut it apart and put your quilt together wonderfully and creatively. The pinwheels and daisys are perfect space fillers with the panel blocks. That panel has great messages.

Jim Wolfe said...

Your version of the panel quilt is inspiring. I recently began sewing with a group, Comfort Quilts, in my area. Several of the ladies are real pros at using panels. Everyone brought a panel to the yearly celebration luncheon which was then used in a game and turned in as finished quilts at the next monthly gathering. This new panel from Benertex would be great for the group's target audiences of Ronald McDonald House and local hospice sites.

Carol, you always amaze me with your creativity! It's not easy (at least for me) to work with panels and include them into a project, but you do it so effortlessly! These panels are so sweet with their words and images, so coordinating them with the Home Grown fabrics make perfect partners! Beautiful work!
