Bluebirds on Roses Project Tour

Today I am thrilled to share with you one of my gorgeous friends latest fabric collection.  Introducing Bluebirds on Roses by Elea Lutz for Riley Blake Designs. It's ever so sweet filled with Elea's signature style floral Blooms, the cutest little Bluebirds and little Kitties playing among the flowers.  Seriously - cuteness overload!

I love the colour palette that Elea uses in her designs - not only do these stand alone as beautiful fabrics to use for an entire project but they all co-ordinate so well together as well as building wonderfully on her previous collections which you may already have in your stash.

Bluebirds on Roses is definitely going to have to go on your "Must Have" Fabric list - I'm especially in love with the Main Red Floral - its just devine,  but it is very hard to go past the Floral Pink as a firm favourite of mine.  Bluebirds on Roses is already shipping to stores Internationally so check out your Local Patchwork Store for this amazing collection by Elea.

It actually took me a rather long time to cut into these fabrics as I couldn't decide what I wanted to make with these - I kept looking admiringly at them until I finally made the call to work on making a Crochet Trim Blanket.  Mostly because Elea has told me a number of times that this is one of her favourite designs of mine.  So off I went cutting...

I love getting to play with the fabrics as you place them all next to each other in this design.  Simple squares couldn't be more perfect for these fabrics as they really shine and you can see the detail in these prints.  I machine quilted it with just some "tram line" quilting and then used the Daisy Red print for the Binding.  This Crochet Trim Blanket comes together very quickly as the quilt itself.  Then on to the Trim.

A sweet Crochet Trim details just finishes this Blanket off perfectly.  You only need to know a few handful of Crochet Stitches to make this. I love making these Crochet Trim Blankets as gifts to celebrate new arrivals.  These are perfect for Babies to use either in Nursery Cots, in Prams, for in the Car or practically anywhere you go as they are light and small.  Also great as a cuddle Blanket to for Toddlers due to its size and texture to hold.

On the back of the Crochet Trim Blanket I used the Droplet Mint print - seriously just love this shade of Aqua.

  1. Patchwork with crochet, hooray! Really, the baby blanket is lovely. Your project gives a good view of the Bluebirds range. My favorites are the blue floral (gorgeous) and the pink, because of those cherries, strawberries, flowers and the bluebirds (completely wonderful). Alexine in Maryland
