Bloom-Topia: Release 4


Welcome back! Today I'm sharing my latest blocks for the 2020 Bloom-Topia quilt along with Fat Quarter Shop.  The Release 4 blocks are so striking, aren't they? The blocks are named Sarah's Choice and Goose & Gosling


The Sarah's Choice (star) blocks were a little tricky, but I pinned, pressed and stitched carefully. Pinning is essential for me to keep my seams matched up!  I also use my walking foot when sewing together blocks with a lot of seam bulk. The walking foot makes it much easier to maneuver over bulky junctions!


My version of Bloom-Topia features the Harvest Road collection by Lella Boutique for Moda.  You'll notice that I used a combination of neutral background prints for my blocks. I selected one of the tonal neutrals from Harvest Road and also Vanilla Grunge (30150 91). Mixing up the neutrals adds visual interest.




The original Bloom-Topia quilt designed by Fat Quarter Shop features the Summer Sweet fabric collection by Sherri & Chelsi for Moda.  If you would like to make one just like the original, there is still time to purchase a Bloom-Topia kit!



Thanks for stopping by!
