Hello! Welcome to my stop on the Backyard Roses Blog Tour!  This new collection by Nadra Ridgeway of Ellis and Higgs {for Riley Blake Designs} is one of my favorite new releases, and if you’re here, I’m guessing its one of yours too!

The colors are so beautiful, and combined with the gorgeous blooms, its truly a stunning range!

The colors and prints have such a vintage feel to me, that I thought a color order churn dash quilt would be a great way to showcase them.  I sashed the quilt with Le Creme Swiss Dots in cream/grey, and I love the little bit of texture it adds to the background.

Nadra did an incredible job of letting this collection stand alone, yet play so well with her first collection, Bloom and Bliss.  The bear pillow on the bed was made with Bloom and Bliss and looks so cute atop the quilt!

I had my dear friend Sarah of @OnConnorsHill quilted an all-over floral that adds to that retro vibe.  I’m so pleased with the final quilt, and love that we’ve added a new throw to our growing collection!
