Heather Ross has her first collection of quilting cottons for Windham Fabrics coming out in July.

Called Briar Rose, it’s a cute collection featuring frogs, bees, strawberries and roses, and I’m looking forward to getting creative with some of those fabrics in the future and am thinking of making myself a lovely outdoors picnic quilt.

At the moment there is a quilt design contest ongoing over at Threadbias in collaboration with Pink Castle Fabrics and Windham Fabrics.

It’s a fun competition that involves using the Threadbias Quilt Design Tool to create a quilt featuring fabrics from the Briar Rose line. I had a play around with it and came up with a design that I named Briar Wheels.

It’s a large block quilt, and needless to say I would love to win the fabrics I need to make this. I could see myself and my boys enjoying summer picnics in the garden on a quilt like this.
