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!

I used one of the panels from the line in the quilt and I just love it!

Here is the panel I used-

I used the four large middles ones which can be cut out at 15 1/2" square.

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.

I used one of the Flea Market panels in the each of the open spots.  I made 21 blocks.

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!!
