It was too pretty not to share. I’m working on my last quilt for #quiltmarket and I finished one of the flowers. I ❤️ how it turned out. I can’t wait to share more. After a crummy day, to see a beautiful flower come out of it helps ease some sadness. #quiltingismytherapytoo #rileyblakedesigns #karenquiltpattern #bluecarolinafabric @rileyblakedesigns #iloverileyblake #quiltythings

I love this quilt and how it turned out. I was feeling bad I didn’t have time to custom quilt it before #quiltmarket. But I am loving the all-over I found for it. Yay for the win 🙌 . #oliverquiltpattern #gamedayfabric #loriwhitlock @loriwhitlock @rileyblakedesigns @bambooquiltshop #winlinecomfortblend #quiltythings #quiltmarketprep #spring2017quiltmarket @berninausa #bernina #berninaq24 #msmdesignsstartsquilting #berninausa #weallsew

Oooh a sea of orange peel love. ❤ I’m getting so much more confident with my machine especially now that is computerized. My customer wanted an orange peel design and I was able to quickly draft it up on my computer and soon it was a pantograph. So excited!!! #quiltythings #topsecretfront #digitaldesignsbymsmdesigns #msmdesignsstartsquilting #berninaq24 #qmatic @berninausa @nataliemalanstudio

One of my newest projects. Starlet is exclusively available through @becraftsy . I loved designing this quilt particularly because of the fussy cut borders. #starletquiltpattern #melroseandvine #quiltythings . Thank you @thequiltingmill for the beautiful quilting as usual!

Riley Blake Mini

Here’s the back of my mini for @rileyblakedesigns booth at @quiltmarket. I took this in my car while my husband was driving. I took a photo of the front (coming soon). But after taking it, I looked up and saw that the woman in the car next me was taking a picture of my quilt too! A little awkward, but hey, when you see quilty goodness, what can you do? 😂. Can’t wait to show you all of the fun quilts I’ve been working on… #qpcurvetemplates #berninaq24 @berninausa #quiltythings #msmdesignsstartsquilting #paperpiecing #quiltmarket #quiltmarketprep #quiltmarket2016 #fall2016quiltmarket @bambooquiltshop #winlinebatting #winlinetextiles

Wistful Winds Blog Tour

By | 2016-12-21T21:31:03+00:00 October 10th, 2016|Blog Tour|16 Comments

I am excited to share my project made using the Wistful Winds collection by Shari Butler (Doohikey Designs) with Riley Blake Designs.  This is such a special collection with its rainbow of colors, sweet florals, and a darling little girl.  It’s even more special when you learn the story behind it.  Shari will be sharing bits and pieces throughout the blog tour over on her blog and through social media and on October 21, she’ll share more of the personal meaning it has for her.  I know a small part of it, and it made joining the blog hop a bit of a cathartic journey for me as I ponder the hope that was poured into each piece.

I chose to sew one of my all-time favorite, quick projects…  The Daisies Car Seat Cover.

Years ago, I made a video tutorial for Riley Blake Designs that shows how to make the Crib Quilt that is included with the pattern.

Feel free to watch and make your own sweet little girl quilt.

The fabric has a fantastic tonal print that worked so nicely for the smaller borders but also for the flowers to give each a great bold coloring.  The tonal also worked beautifully for the binding and the handle straps.  The flowers on a white background stood out so stunningly especially when emphasized by the amazing quilting of Barbie Mills.  I didn’t know when I picked it up, but she had added a little custom quilting on the flowers which just tied the whole piece together beautifully!  Thank you Barbie!!!

The back just uses a rolie polie (precut 2.5″ strips), which makes piecing this cover a breeze.  You can purchase the pattern by clicking the pattern cover below.

It’s time for a fun Giveaway!  Comment below for a chance to win a $50.00 gift certificate to my shop to buy your own Daisies quilt pattern (or whatever you’d like for $50.00).  The giveaway goes until October 16, at 11:59 PM, Pacific Time.  And the winner will be announced on October 17.

Don’t forget to visit other quilters and makers over the next few days who will also be playing with Wistful Winds. You can visit them here for more inspiration.
