Arbor Blossom Blog Tour

Thanks so much for clicking over to my blog today! I'm LeAnne Ballard and welcome! Feel free to follow me over on Instagram as I post there much more often than here.  I'm thrilled to be part of this blog tour introducing Nadra's new line, Arbor Blossom for Riley Blake Fabrics.

I love Nadra's designs and always anticipate her new lines.  I have both of her previous lines in my stash and they are just dreamy! When Nadra reached out to me to participate in her blog tour, I was both extremely flattered and excited!

Today I'm sharing with you a simple and classic pinwheel and patchwork quilt showcasing her beautiful new line. 

Arbor Blossom just says summer to me with its bright and beautiful colors and florals. I knew I wanted to use a classic quilt block for my project and kept coming back to either a pinwheel or patchwork quilt. Since I couldn't decide, I just decided to do both and this sweet quilt was born!

Then to keep things summery and vintage, I added another quilting favorite; a pieced scalloped border. I love adding scallop borders to quilts that feature lots of low volume prints. It frames the quilt slightly softer than a regular border and adds the perfect amount of charm. 

You can find the FREE guide to adding a scallop border to any quilt by clicking HERE.

Thanks again for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you in the comments about what you want to make with Arbor Blossom! Make sure you follow me on Instagram as I post there often. Also check out the list below to see other beautiful projects from some amazing bloggers featuring Arbor Blossom. Happy Wednesday friends!

  1. It does say 'summer', so sweet 😊

  2. Such a beautiful quilt, LeAnne! The scallop border is so, so sweet and looks great with the binding you chose! I think I'm going to have to stock up on the whole line :)
