It’s springtime in the countryside; the meadows are dotted with flowers, the birds are serenading, and there is a distinct fragrance of earth and rain mixed together. Everything is lush and green–the gardens dressed in their cheeriest blooms of pink and white. You might see an old garden shed–topped with tin, shabby walls worn with old wood peeking through faded layers of paint. There is a romantic charm to such a scene, and I often find myself wishing for a way to bottle up the beauty to enjoy through winter. This collection represents that gathering of spring elements, a dedication to all flower lovers.
Introducing Bloomington by Lella Boutique for Moda Fabrics. Shipping to shops April 2020. Showing October 26-28 at International Quilt Market in Houston, TX (open to the trade only).
The best news of all? This sweet little bundle of joy is what I imagine to be the lovechild of my Olive’s Flower Market + Nest collections–which remain in high demand but are no longer in print. You’re going to want to stock up on this one.
Now, I already know you want to know about coordinates. Here’s are my recommendations for Moda Bella Solids and BasicGrey Grunge matches:

I’ll post more pics of the new stuff soon, but for now you can check out new quilt patterns in the shop! To celebrate, enjoy a 25% discount in October 2019 (automatically applied at checkout). I’m headed to Houston for the week, so be advised that pattern orders will ship when I return Tuesday (10/29). PDFs are available right away, of course. If you’d like to follow along, find me on Instagram @lellaboutique.

I have two Bloomington charm packs and I need two Moda solid charm packs to make the Charm Pack Cherry quilt featured on the Fat Quarter Shop YouTube in 2015. My problem is that I am absolutely terrible at choosing color. What solid would you suggest to go with Bloomington for that particular quilt pattern?
