Hi everyone and welcome to my stop on the Backyard Roses blog tour. Backyard Roses is the newest fabric line designed by Nadra Ridgeway (www.ellisandhiggs.com) for Riley Blake. It's a charming line, filled with happy colors and sweet flowers.
I've had a classic churn dash quilt on my wish-list for a couple of years now and when I saw Backyard Roses I KNEW it would be perfect! The small scale florals really shine when used in small blocks like this.
I selected just a few of the colors from the range. Can't go wrong with the primary colors, right? Well, primary colors + green ;) The line also includes a pretty pink and a fresh mint color. I quilted it with some medium sized loops, and I backed the quilt in a solid green. I used my most favorite green print from the line as the binding. I can't get enough of that green!
The finished quilt measures 59" x 68"
