The Betsy Quilt Along- The Fabric I'm Using

Hi, Everyone! Last week began first week of the Betsy Quilt Along and I'm so happy to start sewing this quilt with all of you!

The Betsy quilt measures 85 3/8" x 85 3/8".  This quilt along will be free and all of the patterns/posts will be here on my blog.  

I'll also be sharing progress on Instagram- @jessicadayon- and we will be using the hashtag #thebetsyquilt

I wanted to get to this post last week but the time slipped away and I didn't get a chance.  So, today I'm sharing the fabric that I'm using to make my quilts during this quilt along.  Yes, I'm doing two quilts because I could not resist (it was almost three- HAHA).

The first one I'm making is the solid aqua and white.  This is the mock up.

For the background, I am using Riley Blake Confetti Cottons in Aqua (C120-RILEYAQUA).  

For the white, I'm using Bee Backgrounds Gray Cross Stitch (C6381-GRAY).  I love every fabric in the Bee Backgrounds line and I'm really excited to use one as my white here.  I think the little gray 'x's will add quite a bit of charm to the quilt!

For my second version of the Betsy quilt, I'm making a scrappy red and solid white quilt.  Here is the mock up for the red (it's solid but you still get an idea).

I'm using quite the variety of red fabrics for this quilt and I could't be happier!  Let me tell you what ones that I'm using!

All of these fabrics are from Riley Blake Designs.  Below I am listing the name of each fabric collection and the designer as well as the SKU number of each fabric.
