Bloomington fabric

It's springtime in the countryside; the meadows are dotted with flowers, the birds are serenading, and there is a distinct fragrance of earth and rain mixed together. Everything is lush and green--the gardens dressed in their cheeriest blooms of pink and white. You might see an old garden shed--topped with tin, shabby walls worn with old wood peeking through faded layers of paint. There is a romantic charm to such a scene, and I often find myself wishing for a way to bottle up the beauty to enjoy through winter. This collection represents that gathering of spring elements, a dedication to all flower lovers.
Introducing Bloomington by Lella Boutique for Moda Fabrics. Shipping to shops April 2020. Showing October 26-28 at International Quilt Market in Houston, TX (open to the trade only).
The best news of all? This sweet little bundle of joy is what I imagine to be the lovechild of my Olive's Flower Market + Nest collections--which remain in high demand but are no longer in print. You're going to want to stock up on this one.

Hello, Forest

Did you know Christmas is only 85 days away? Time to get crackin' so you can deck those halls with pretty Christmas quilts. For the October $5 Pattern of the Month, I've picked the Forest pattern. It's a charm pack quilt made in my Little Tree  collection for Moda Fabrics (currently out in shops).
