Here it is. The quilt I made from the Moda Bluebird Park layer cake is now finished and I am so pleased with the final result.
Bluebird Park really is a most charming fabric collection featuring whimsical animals (I love the rabbits), balloons and bicycles. And the colours are so pretty too with a lovely mix of teal, yellow, tangerine, grey and green.
The hydrangea fabric in teal from the same collection was used for the backing fabric and I chose the textured yellow for the binding. Dancing hearts seemed the perfect choice for the long-arm quilting design and it shows up so well after washing – that little bit of shrinkage producing a lovely vintage puckered look.
The finished quilt measures 150cm by 130cm, the perfect size for a lap quilt or for throwing over a sofa. It is currently on display at Fabric HQ in their fabulous new shop at Layby Farm, Stoke Mandeville, HP22 5XJ.

I love this Jen, the colours are gorgeous.
Thanks so much for your comment, Sam. I'm so glad you like it. This collection would work so well for children's clothes too – those rabbits would make a fabulous dress.
Is this made from just one layer cake? If so what pattern did you use? I have only 1 of this layer cake and can’t find anymore because it’s an older line. I love how yours turned out!
Hi Calle, So pleased you liked the quilt. Yes, it was made from a single layer cake. I didn’t use a pattern as I designed the quilt myself. I have put a tutorial on my blog today showing how to make it. Any questions, please ask me.
