Abstract Garden Grows Wild (and a Giveaway!)

I am tickled pink to be part of the Abstract Garden frenzy with Benartex! Because Holy Yummy Colorful Goodness! Also?

Modern Marks Blog Hop – (& Giveaway!)

Welcome to the first edition of Full Fabric Friday here at The District -- today it's also the Modern Marks Blog Hop, featuring Christa Watson's new line Modern Marks for Benartex! The Project - Churned Up with Modern Marks When Christa offered me the opportunity to work with her debut line full of vibrant, saturated color and groovy prints, I knew immediately what I wanted to do with it. Immediately. I had been playing around with the concept of a deconstructed, tossed-up churn dash block for a few months, but hadn't quite settled on a design.
