Riley Blake Designs Project Tour- From the Heart

Image
  Good Morning!  Today I'm sharing the project I made for the Riley Blake Designs Project Tour for From the Heart by Sandy Gervais.   This collection is stunning!  The reds are the most perfect shade and there are SO many amazing low volumes. Photo Credit: Riley Blake Designs I chose to make the  Hearts Afloat quilt pattern by Bev Getschel .  I absolutely love this clever quilt design. I have made it once before and totally love it so I decided to make it again.  Honestly, I'll never tire of this design so I definitely see more of these in my future :) In addition to the From the Heart fabric that I used in the top, I added in some Riley Blake Basics- Texture in Red (C610-RED).   For the backing, I used Riley Blake Designs Swiss Dots on White in Red (C660-80 RED). For the batting, I used  The Warm Company Warm & Plush. I used my  Janome Continental M7  to piece and quilt this quilt.   For the quilting, I decided on a free motion heart design.  This is the first free motion

Good Morning!  Today I'm sharing the project I made for the Riley Blake Designs Project Tour for Sending Love by My Mind's Eye.   I love this pretty Valentine's day collection! Photo Credit: Riley Blake Designs I chose to make the Open Heart quilt pattern by Lella Boutique .  I have been wanting to make this pattern for a while and I thought this fabric was absolutely perfect for it. For the background fabric, I used Riley Blake's Red Pin Dot ( C705-RED).  I really love the pin dot fabrics.  I'm also using this same red pin dot in a Christmas quilt I'm making now.  It is so wonderful! In addition to the Sending Love fabric that I used in the top, I added in two Riley Blake basics: Kisses in Cayenne (C210-CAYENNE) and Hot Pink Swiss Dots (C670-70 HOT PINK). For the backing, I used Riley Blake Designs Kisses Reversed in Red (C220-RED). For the batting, I used  The Warm Company Warm 100 .  Next to the Warm & Plush, this is my favorite batting.  It is soft and f
