Safari Moon Blog Hop and A much loved quilt finish

Welcome to my little stop here on Frances Newcombe's Safari Moon blog hop.
I was beyond flattered when Frances asked me to participate in the launch of her new fabric line for Art Gallery Fabrics. This line is so whimsical, soft, and completely amazing.

As soon as I saw Safari Moon I had to show my little girl. She immediately asked if I'd make her a quilt using the fabric. So of course I had to.

In the process of putting this quilt together a wonderful opportunity came up to help a little girl in her fight with cancer. I took an odd block from the quilt, and made it into an 18x18" quilted pillow cover.

This cover was auctioned off along with another one I made and with the help of many handmade artisans we were able to raise almost $3,000 dollars for her family in a single weekend. All of this compiled by a very thoughtful gal named Shannon over at "Hustlemama Handmade" Our community is seriously amazing. 

The rest of my blocks were put together into an HST quilt using a design idea from a Thimble Blossoms pattern called Lucky. I thought it was only fitting as I was feeling pretty lucky to be a part of this hop.

We have finally received a little rain here in California (much needed) so it was quite hard to show off the really vibrant colors of this gorgeous fabric. It was so soft and smooth, I seriously am discovering a new addiction to Art Gallery fabrics. Of course we will be adding more Safari moon to that collection.

Here is the finished quilt....

I think that this whimsical quilt was perfect for my little one. As you can tell, she is quite smitten :)

Thank you Frances for this wonderful experience and for designing such beautiful fabric.
