Riley Blake Blog Tour- American Legacy
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. So, this is on my list to write into pattern but I don't have it ready at the moment.
Let's look at the quilt! It is called the Liberty Quilt.
I used the navy star print for the binding and I love how it finished this quilt off!
The top is made of almost all American Legacy fabrics (the creams in the line make really wonderful background fabric!!) with a little bit of Confetti Cottons in Riley White (C120-RILEYWHITE).
The backing is Riley Blake Wide Back Shades in Cream (WB200-CREAM). I love wide backs so much! It really nice not to have to piece the backing and just cut to size and get started on the quilting.
Talk to you soon,
