Bluebird Park quilt completed

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.

    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.
