Backyard Blooms is here!

Backyard Blooms fabric

After six of the longest months EVER…Backyard Blooms is starting to ship to quilt shops!  

It packs a punch of color, and it’s even prettier in person.  Since it feels like a lifetime ago when I posted about it, today I’m re-sharing some of the projects I made: 

Clover quilt pattern, 10 inch square or layer cake friendly

Clover quilt, and the dress (thanks Mom!) is Simplicity pattern R10373

Brightly Quilt Pattern, layer cake or fat quarter friendly

Backyard Blooms fabric

Jelly Weave, jelly roll quilt pattern

Jelly Weave Quilt (may or may not come with the dog…it depends on the day)

Backyard Blooms fabric

Chickens quilt pattern

Chickens of course!

I also have a new project with it that I’ll share next week.  

Clover quilt pattern, 10 inch square or layer cake friendly

You can find Backyard Blooms in local quilt shops, online quilt shops, Etsy…and it’s still shipping, so hopefully it will be easy to find wherever you shop. 

I’m not posting links so that I don’t unintentionally exclude retailers that carry it, but a quick Google search for Backyard Blooms fabric will bring up plenty of options!

I’m so excited to see what you guys make with it (or how pretty it looks on your shelf if you’re like me and have NO sewing time lately!). 

Who knew six months ago that by the time the fabric came out I would be using it to make….face masks?! 

At least it makes some cute masks (I’ve been using this tutorial).

    How wonderful and what great projects. There must be so many favorites already! That chicken quilt has to be the best of all for how it brings smiles. Where can we buy the collection?

      Thank you! I know has it, has it, Etsy has tons of it (just search Backyard Blooms fabric), and tons of other quilt shops!

    Oh wow, I can’t wait to get this fabric! I love your diagonal seam tape, I never draw lines. Gotta make that chicken quilt.

    I bought some of the chickens a week ago so I could make my mom a mask. She LOVED it!

    Are you going to have a tutorial on the Back Yard Blooms quilt? I am very new at quilting and it would help me and a lot of others just like me!

      Nope I’m not! I have three Backyard Blooms quilts (actually 4), there are 3 patterns that were written for the Backyard Blooms fabric line. Maybe sometime in the future I’ll do a different quilt tutorial for it!

    These fabrics are wonderful, but I have what may be a silly question. I’m just getting back into sewing after many years and I’m curious as to how fabric “cycles” work, as far as introductions, availability times, and production runs. I see that this was just released last month, yet it’s also now gone forever, which seems like a rather short production run. Am I missing something?

    Couldn’t I use your heart pattern to make the blossoms?
