Bella’s Garden yardage and a magazine giveaway

Posted on 51 Comments

Hi everyone,

I’ve had so many emails this weekend from people looking to find Bella fabric to make Bella’s Garden. No, I don’t have any kits unfortunately.  There just aren’t enough hours in every day for me to stock, inventory, and cut fabric in addition to designing so I leave that to the wonderful quilt shops.  Unfortunately this was a few collections back so you might need to do some searching, but I have seen it  in shops.  I know that my local shop, Sew Much Fun, in Lowell, NC has some yardage, and I’ve seen it online too.

What is can do is provide you with SKU information.  I went back through my design notes and this is what I found and I reconciled them with Fons and Porter’s directions.  If you want to see what the fabrics look like up close, visit my fabric page.

Gold print for the background – this is actually a creamy color ( 1-½ yards
Turquoise print for the sashing, outer border, and binding ( 2-¼ yards
Turquoise large scale strip for the sashing – this is actually the medallion print in the Bella collection, not a true stripe ( 1-½ yards
Pink print for pieced rows and large yo-yos – I’d describe this as an orange and pink circle design (115_101_07_1):  ⅝ yard
Dark pink print for inner border, petals, and small yo-yos ( – 3/8 yard
Green print for pieced rows (  ⅝ yard
Light green print for stems and leaves –  (115_101_04_1):  1 fat quarter (or 1/2 yard if you prefer to make bias bars, as I did in the original, rather than curvy applique shapes)
Blue print for pieced rows (115_101_06_2):  3/8 yard
Orange print for petals and small yo-yos ( 1 fat quarter

Bonjour, Mon Ami, one of my more current collections for Blend Fabrics, plays very nicely with Bella, so you may be able to draw from it to produce a lovely quilt as well.  Hope this helps!

Also, Fons and Porter sent me a couple of extra issues that I thought I would pass on to you all, so if you would like to enter to win a copy leave a comment on this post telling me what color you think should be the “color of the year” for 2014.  No research – just your personal opinion.  Deadline is this Wednesday night, August 28th.

Happy sewing!
