May 2 Bella Caronia Blog That’s a Wrap

You can win fabric on each blog and I will be sharing photos of all the projects on Instagram with a fat quarter bundle GIVEAWAY at the end! To win follow me (@bellacaronia) on Instagram and repost any of the Spring Bloom Makers photos with #springbloommakersgiveaway and I will randomly select a winner from the hashtag feed on May 3rd!

The color in Spring Bloom is inspired by my new life in Southern California. I grew up outside of Chicago and was accustomed to a four seasons climate. I always looked forward to Spring and all the fresh flowers, colors and scents it brought with it. When I first moved to California the time seamed different without four distinct seasons. It took me a long time to get used to it. Now I appreciate that there are gardens blooming year round and I am constantly surrounded by color. I look forward to seeing flowers everyday. So I hope the bright colors in Spring Bloom fabrics get you excited for Spring!
