I am working on my first block in the Bloom Sew along and I just need to add my leaves and it is finished.

Also joining us today is Jina from Jina Barney Designz. Jina chose to use a fun combination of prints from Hope Chest 2, which features reproduction designs from the 1930’s.

The cute background fabric on this block comes from the Lovebugs Collection.

Fortunately for us, Jina plans on making the entire quilt out of these sweet prints. We think it will look absolutely charming!
