I had been holding onto a bundle of fabric for such a long time, waiting for the stars to align to give me a block of time to make something from it.
The fabric is called Blueberry Park by Karen Lewis for Robert Kaufman.

I had an idea for a block for some time that involved foundation piecing.
This is my test block!

The colours are so wonderful in Blueberry Park I really wanted to do them justice
and also create a rainbow quilt of course!

Lots of cutting and lots of sewing was involved but I enjoyed working with fabrics so different from my own.

And finally the quilt top was finished.
I just needed to decide how to quilt it.

In the end I choose to do lots and lots of straight lines diagonally across the quilt.
Simple yet very effective.

For the backing I choose a Carolyn Friedlander fabric
and another Blue Berry Park fabric for the binding.
