A few months ago I had the opportunity to design a project using Tula Pink’s new line of baby prints, Bumble. Bumble is a dreamy, sweet collection featuring bumble bees, pollen, birchwood forests and a dreamy cloudy skyland, all in the classic Tula style. What makes the collection unique is the fabric itself- a super soft, high thread count peached poplin with a gentle texture that makes it perfect for everything from quilts to clothing. It was a dream to sew with, and pictures can’t quite capture the depth of the color-subtle and vibrant at the same time.
I decided to go with a baby quilt-super easy, appliqued hexagons (because, you know, bees!) and a two tone background. The hexagons are big enough to allow fussy cutting of the feature fabrics, and the edges are left raw, because babies love texture.
The pattern is available as a free download from from the Freespirit website, as are a number of other great projects.
I love how the project turned out, and I hope you do too. I would love to see your finished version of Bumblecomb! Tag me on instagram @staceyinstitches, or add it to the Stacey Day Quilts Flickr Group.

Attempting to enter the fabric give away. With my limited time I reviewed a few blogs and I choose Poppyprint. I love her use of colours and just her way with words.
Stacey, how did you quilt tree fabric in the center panel? In some ways it looks puffy, like you quilted the outline of the trees, but in other angles it looks like you didn’t quilt the area with the trees at all. Thanks,
I quilted the outline of the trees and around the hexagons. I didn’t quilt in the hexagons and that’s what gives it that puffy look =)
