Floral Hues by Sue Daley

Hello! Today I get to share with you the quilt I made with Floral Hues by Sue Daley for Riley Blake Designs. Floral Hues is a cotton lawn fabric and it feels light and so soft. It would be perfect for apparel like an infinity scarf or a pretty top like the one that Sachiko made with this fabric. I decided to make a quilt and I used Riley Blake Confetti Cotton Solid as the background fabric and it worked really well with the cotton lawn.

There is a really fun mix of vibrant, pretty and bold colors and prints in this collection. I wanted to make this vintage Dutch Tulips quilt block for a while and I thought these fabrics would pair so well with that block to make a cute quilt.

I'm really pleased with the way the quilt turned out! I used the floral pink print for a small border and then some scrappy 4-patches as the next border.

 I love the pinks in this collection! Here's another little project I started that great pink print! 

I bound the quilt with the bold aqua floral print.

I used the old trusty free-motion stippling to quilt it. I'm always happy with it. I used the black and white print from the collection for all of the circles in the blocks to tie them together since I made them really scrappy looking.

I used my favorite print in the collection to add diamonds in the sashing in place of cornerstones. Just something to anchor it all together. I really enjoyed working with these fabrics and I think the quilt turned out pretty much how I wanted it too, happy and bright! Like flowers and sunshine!

Happy Sewing!

This is so pretty Erin and I want to make this Dutch Tulip block today! I've just searched for patterns but have not found this one-did you draft it yourself? Please let me know if I can purchase it anywhere. Also loving the fabric you chose to use-I'll be hunting for some of that for a summer blouse for my GD.! Thank you!
