Riley Blake Blog Tour- National Parks

Image
Hi, Everyone!  Today is my turn on the Riley Blake Designs Blog Tour for National Parks by Anderson Design Group.  I've loved these beautiful, vibrant panels since I saw them.  

I chose the Acadia National Park panel because it has special meaning.  My family and I went there in 2019 on a cruise.  We were only in the park for a few hours but it was very memorable.  Each of my children want to call this quilt their own because of the memories and meaning that it holds.




Because the panels are already so beautiful, you can choose to add as much or as little to it before quilting.  I want with adding a few borders that I thought coordinated nicely with the panel.



The panel measures 36" x 43 1/2".  Then I went on to add 4 borders- each measuring 2" finished.  My finished quilt measures 52" x 59 1/2".  Here are the details of the fabric that I used in this quilt.

For this quilt top, I used: 
1 Acadia National Park panel (SKU P9480-ACADIA)
3/4 yard Confetti Cottons V…

Riley Blake Blog Tour- American Legacy

Image
Hi, Everyone!  Today is my turn on the Riley Blake Designs Blog Tour for American Legacy by Dani Mogstad.

In 2018, Dani Mogstad released a collection called American Heritage and I loved it so much I bought some yardage but I didn't buy enough of it!  Now this gorgeous sister collection, American Legacy, is here and I'm so excited to buy some and make a few quilts with it!!  

Today, I'll be sharing the first quilt that I made with it!

First, let's look at the prints in the line.  The line is made up of dark, rich reds, navy and medium blues, and creams.  I love the mix of prints too- florals, stars, a small quilty cheater print, bandana, and so on...

I designed this quilt pattern specifically with this line in mind.  Lately, that's been how it's working for me.  I see fabric swatches and then I'm inspired and I design based on the swatches.  I've been designing and making quilt patterns quicker than I can write the patterns.…
