I recently had the pleasure of working with Heather Bailey’s latest line (just arriving in stores now!) Lottie Da. Isn’t it dreamy? This is Classic Heather Bailey colors and vintage feel. I used a new pattern of Heather’s (that I believe she will have available for free, but don’t quote me on that) to make this quilt top.<
I actually didn’t use all of the fabrics from her new line. Heather’s pattern here focuses on mainly the greens and teals with a splash of that lovely fuchsia- like color and orange. But the line is actually a bit more saturated in color and you should definitely check out Heather’s gorgeous pictures of it all on her blog HERE. Oh and I think she has a giveaway going on there still to win a FQ bundle of the line. So hurry and check. 😉
The colors I worked with all evoked a dreamy feel for me. This quite top pattern is soft and subtle. It was interesting in particular to work with all prints and no solids. But Heather cleverly uses some blender fabrics from her line to act as solids, in particular the white with fuchsia square dot print (which I’m sure has a lovely name lol). I did develop a couple of favorite prints though. How can you not?
This orange floral print above is a definite favorite of mine as well as the grey/teal version of the same print that you can see to the upper right above the orange (just saw that they are named Tangerine Sprig and Dove Sprig). Those ones made me smile every time I got to work on a block with them. There is a teal/grey and fuchsia print that I adored as well, but it is harder to see the larger scale print here because it is chopped into smaller pieces for the pattern. But I would use it to back a quilt in a heartbeat. It is called Turquoise Duphine and you can see it here at the Fat Quarter Shop.
There is a yummy scallop stripe print that I think would be darling to fussy cut for a project. Having a little girl, I just see lots of little girl items when I see Heather’s lines. They are so perfectly feminine!
Oh and once again, I’d like to give a huge shout out to my husband for tirelessly holding up quilts for me and traipsing around our property to find a good shot in all kinds of tricky lighting. It’s ever so helpful that he is tall too! lol
I can’t wait to see how Heather has this quilt top quilted up. Oh and I’m so excited to get to meet her in person at Sewing Summit next week. She is the keynote speaker! I think this will be my first ever meeting of an actual designer in person. Boy…I need to get out more often. lol

beautiful fabrics x good job he is happy to help so that we could see the top in all its beauty xx
Didn't mean to comment as the guild. I love this top! This line is so fun and the scallop stripe is great. I got to meet Heather at Spring Quilt Market and she was delightful, and she even came to the after party PMQG threw with one of our sponsors!
Beautiful! I was just putting these prints in and out of my online shopping cart last night, trying to decide which ones to buy. Oh, the choices!
Very pretty. I love Heather bailey's new line. What did you use for the white sashing? Thanks
The sashing actually isn't white, but a white print with the purple square dot print from Heather's line. It's called Cream Lottie Dot.
Very very nice! I really like the colour in this line and the cute pattern
very nice! Love the orange flower print too!
That orange floral is one of my favorites from this new line as well and those square dots! Your quilt top looks great! I was also really excited when I heard that she is going to be speaking at sewing summit – some of the first fabrics I bought were from one of her collections!
Very pretty, have fun meeting her :o0
Those are beautiful colors in this new fabric line. The purple-ish and the lime greens are my favorites. Not too fond of the orange, but it all works well together so what do I know. LOL It's a beautiful quilt.
Have fun meeting Heather.
Lovely quilt. It has a very calm feel to it. Beautiful!
This is a beautiful quilt top
Angela – it's so beautiful! I love the color palette and the little pops of purple amid the greens and teals! Makes my eyes move all around the quilt, as if it's telling a story! Love it! kg
Thank you! Though admittedly with Heather's fabrics and Heather's pattern, I couldn't go wrong. 😉
Beautiful! Love the fabric and adore the pattern! You did a great job!!!
Thank you! It was a quick and easy pattern to make with beautiful fabrics.
Beautiful! Great Job! Do you know if this pattern is available yet?
