Full Bloom Mini | Book & Fabric News

I haven't had much time for selfish sewing lately, it's been a busy few months of blog tours, magazine work, and of course the launch of my first book and fabric collection (which by an amazing stroke of luck, coincided). Finally I managed to get a few spare hours this weekend and made a new mini quilt for my sewing room wall.

This mini quilt is called 'Full Bloom' and it's a free pattern by Bridgette from The Family Hearth - I love all her work and her photography is incredible. I wish I could take photos half as nice as hers! As soon as I saw it I knew instantly that I wanted to use some of my prized Les Fleurs by Anna Bond for Cotton & Steel, which I had bought at quilt market. I paired it with the Cotton & Steel sprinkles in dark navy, which works so well with Les Fleurs.

This pattern is very clever and simple, consisting entirely of half square triangles and squares - so goes together very quickly, and is suitable for all levels of quilters. Thanks Bridgette for generously sharing your pattern with us!

In other news, this past week has been an incredibly exciting one! My book Quilt Petite has come off the printing press and two big boxes are on their way to me! It will be available worldwide from 1 November (a little earlier in Europe) and you can preorder it on Amazon, Book Depository, and Barnes & Noble. Or if you say you can't wait till November to get your hands on it, check my Etsy shop next week as I will have some advance (and autographed!) copies available! ;-)

Also this week I received my designer bolts of Sweet Orchard from Riley Blake.  They fit perfectly in the bottom section of my new floor to ceiling fabric cupboards (new sewing room update coming real soon!). As well as advance copies of my book I will be listing a few bundles of Sweet Orchard in my Etsy shop shortly!


  1. What a beautiful site - all those gorgeous bolts of fabric!! Exciting news about your book - loved the blog hops leading up to this. Your mini quilt is so soft and pretty looking!
