Thank you for the kind messages and comments about Backyard Blooms, I am so excited for it to come to shops. That’s one of the tricky things about making fabric…it’s showing now in January for quilt shops to buy, but it doesn’t actually ship to stores until July. The waiting is the worst, but also time flies and this is a very summery collection!
Brightly is one of my newest quilt patterns to go with this collection. I wanted it to look well….bright. I also wanted it to have a “scrappy” look, without having to dig through my super unorganized and full scrap bin.
Brightly can be made with a Layer Cake (one layer cake with 40 – 10″ squares), or fat quarters. I used a layer cake of Backyard Blooms for this quilt.
I sound like a broken record…but really Diagonal Seam Tape + star blocks are a match made in heaven!
This was quilted by Kaitlyn, in the modern loops design (I think?). It’s a new favorite for sure.
