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.
