Riley Blake Designs Project Tour- Flea Market
Good Tuesday Morning! Today I'm sharing the project I made for the Riley Blake Designs Project Tour for Flea Market by Lori Holt. I literally love every single thing that Lori Holt designs. I greatly anticipate her collection releases as well as her books and cross stitch patterns! When I first saw Flea Market, I fell in love right away!! For ages, I tried to come up with a design that seemed right. Every time I thought I had a good one, I'd find my mind wandering later on thinking...well what if I did this instead. I know my-designing-self enough to know that if I was doing that, then I didn't find the "right" design yet. So, I kept on trying. Lots of designs later, found one that I was so happy about! First, let's take a look at the beautiful Flea Market!
Totally gorgeous, right!?!
I decided to make a quilt using the burgoyne quilt block. I've wanted to make a burgoyne quilt for ages in a blue version that I saw on Pinterest but this turned out even better (though I can't rule out making that blue version in the future 😂)!
Here it is!
Here is the panel I used-
I didn't write a pattern but I will show instructions on how I made one block. The sizes listed below are cutting sizes. The block is 15 1/2" x 15 1/2", including the seam allowances. This block would make an amazing block for quilting bees or swaps!!
When planned this on my computer, I planned 2 borders. But when I actually made it, I decided not to add any borders. Here is the layout with the originally planned borders.
The center of the quilt, without any borders, measures 75 1/2" square. In case you want to make this ad like the border option- the first brown border is 2" finished and the ow volume border is 4" finished. With both borders, the quilt will measure 87 1/2" square.
Here are the rest of the details for the quilt, in addition to the Flea Market fabric I used for piecing the blocks,
For the white background, I used Lori Holt Bee Backgrounds in Pewter Stitched Circle (C9940-PEWTER)
For the binding, I used Flea Market Pebble Wall Paper (C10214-PEBBLE)
For the backing, I used Wide Back Flea Market in Red Roses (WB10232-RED).
For the batting, I used The Warm Company Warm 100.
I pieced and quilted it on my Janome M7 Continental.
I loved making this one!!
Talk to you soon,
