What brings more joy to a quilter than a fresh, new bundle of fabric?
When I thought of designing a quilt that featured little bundles of fabric wrapped with ribbon, I knew I wanted to save this pattern to use with Amy Sinibaldi‘s fabrics. If you know me, you know that her fabrics have been a favorite of mine as long as I have been quilting. (See other quilts I have made using her fabric here and here).
One of the things I love about the fabric I picked for this quilt, ‘Mayfair’, are the colors and the tiny designs on the fabric. Let me share a few ‘Bundles of Joy‘ blocks and you can take a look for yourself.
Bundle Of Joy Blocks
Can you see the tiny flowers in the top fabric? There’s hints of yellow, along with the dreamiest blue. You can see a pop of the yellow fabric on the right, and notice the purples, pinks, and deep blues. The colors make this fabric line turn any quilt into something you would find at a cute boutique. Maybe, for instance, a cute store in London? The entire line is inspired by Amy’s time spent in London, so that’s very fitting.
In this close up of a quilt block, you can see how Amy’s hand drawings are turned into the perfect, whimsical fabrics. And if you are drooling over that custom quilting (come on quilters, you know you are), I’ll leave a link so you can find out who the magical hands behind that was: CUSTOM QUILTING. You can also try HAND QUILTING to give your quilt a custom feel.
Drawings Turned Into Fabric
Here are some of Amy’s hand drawings. Notice her flowers here and in the quilt block above. I just LOVE them!

WHAT DO YOU SEE?
One last thing I would love to hear from you about is this: What do you see when you look at the ‘Bundles Of Joy’ quilt? One quilter said it looks like a gift bundle. Another said this reminds her of a stack of quilts. Another said it looked perfect for a baby shower. I’m not sure what she saw the bundles being, but I like it! I’m curious what you see when you look at the quilt top?
