Fabric Tuesday: Blossoms flimsy

I've never done a single color quilt. But I happened across a pin of the Blossoms quilt from this book (more on the book later) and I thought how pretty it would be in my daughter's favorite color.

Because, silly me, I thought it was lavender. But when I opened up my Bella Solids swatch book, she chose Capri. Of course.

The blocks are huge, so the quilt comes together pretty quickly.

I've got a yellow one in the works for my sunshine baby, and a yellow one yet to be cut for me.

I mentioned the book. I decided to purchase a digital copy. I have a digital copy of Camille Roskelley's second book, and Ayumi's book Patchwork, Please! In both those books, if there is a template, you can click on a url and be taken to the template.

Not so in "With Fabric & Thread." No pattern links. Kind of a useless book, since most of the projects I want to do require the pattern. I'm trying to get my money refunded for the book, but so far, it's been quite the headache.

Linking up!

  1. The capri looks so bright and fresh! Shame about the patterns, hope it gets sorted for you!

  2. I love this quilt!! Such a wonderful design. Great job!!

  3. Love the quilt ! Looking forward to your future post of it in Yellow ; )

  4. I love the simple blue & white solid fabrics, the quilt is so pretty & tranquil feeling :)

  5. Loving the color! Pretty quilt.

  6. What a pieceful quilt top. Love it in the blue and think it will be awesome in yellow.

  7. very pretty, I think it would be lovely in yellow too

  8. That's one of my favorite colors, although I like lavender, too. The mono-color theme really adds a new twist to that block. I like it this way!

  9. The blue is very pretty. I'm glad you let her choose the colour before ordering yards of lavender!
