Riley Blake Blog Tour- Crazy Quilt Papers

Image
Hi, Everyone!  Today is my turn on the Riley Blake Designs Blog Tour for Lori Holt's Crazy Quilt Papers.

These fun papers come in two sizes- 5" and 10".  I used the 10" size with a layer cake of Vintage Happy 2 by Lori Holt.




Riley Blake has a really great tutorial on how to use these papers on their blog- HERE.

After I made my crazy squares (36 total) and trimmed them to 8 1/2" x 8 1/2".  I used the easy corner triangle method and sewed 3" solid white squares to each of the corners and that resulted in a crazy octagon shape.




Each block is 8" finished.  There are 3 borders- each measuring 2" finished.  The quilt measures 60 1/2" x 60 1/2".

For this quilt top, I used: 
-1 pack of Lori Holt's Crazy Quilt Squares- 10" size
-1- 10" stacker of Vintage Happy 2 by Lori Holt
-2 yards white background (I used Confetti Cottons Vintage White- C120-VINTAGEWHITE)
(this will be cut into 12- 2 1/2" strips for borders 1 and 3 and 11- 3&qu…

Free Quilt Pattern: Porch Swing

Image
When I saw Line's new fabric line, I knew I had to make a few quilts with it!  The first one I made is my Odette Block of the Week (which I'm running as a free block of the week now- to see the latest post on this, go HERE)



The next quilt I designed with it is the one I'm sharing today!  It's called Porch Swing.  I love the vintage feel of this quilt!  And, I really enjoyed making it!!






Porch Swing measures 74 1/2" x 88 1/2".  It is a fun quilt to make with lots of triangles and flying geese.

Riley Blake Blog Tour- Buttermilk Basics

Image
Hi, Everyone!  Today is my turn on the Riley Blake Designs Blog Tour for Buttermilk Basics by Stacy West.




Photo Credit: Riley Blake Designs
I was really excited to get this beautiful line and make something with it!!  I love the vintage-y rainbow of colors and every one of the cream/tan prints.

I decided on making a uneven nine patch quilt.  I made this up as I went but I'm including basic directions below so you can make one if you'd like.



I designed this simple quilt to shown off this pretty fabric!  Each block is 6" finished.  The quilt measures 58 1/2" x 70 1/2".

For this quilt top, I used: 
-1 fat quarter bundle of Buttermilk Basics by Stacy West (NOTE: I used every single inch of each of the cream prints so you may want to get a couple extra cream print fat quarters in case you don't cut the same way I did or in case of cutting mistakes)
-5/8 yard cream print for the border (I used Buttermilk Basics C9180-NAVY)
-5/8 yard binding (I used Buttermilk Basics C9183…
