Florabunda!’s Blue without You Pattern debut and GIVEAWAY!

Just look at this sun dazzled quilt. Doesn’t it make you want to curl up and read a book, out in the sun? Hope for a breeze. Have a full day of relaxation and contented, good feelings? That’s how it makes me feel!

Tiffany Hayes designed Blue without You,  specifically for Florabunda! Isn’t it lovely?

Tiffany Hayes and Florabunda! by RJR Fabrics

Head over to Tiffany’s online presence, Needle in a Hayes Stack, to see her full range of quilt patterns, block of the month offerings, fabrics, kits and notions too. Here is her Insta, her Pinterest, and FB just to keep it tidy! I could not be happier that Teri Lucas connected us!

The pattern for this quilt, Blue without You, can be preordered!

This quilt exemplifies my hopes for how Florabunda! might be used. It demonstrates the range of values found in the blue portion of Florabunda! It vibrates with patterning and density of color. And it highlights the Blowsy Rose print in my favorite coloration of the three, Bluette.

I can easily see this quilt being made up in the Bengal Rose colorings within the line too. With my new found confidence in following patterns and making more traditional quilts, I hope to take the creation of this quilt up for myself! It is ingeniously simple but packs a colorful punch! The blocks are big and the color pulls it together nicely, its pretty snazzy.

Check out Tiffany’s post about it!
