Riley Blake Designs Project Tour- Faith Hope and Love
Good Morning! Today I'm sharing the project I made for the Riley Blake Designs Project Tour for Faith, Hope, & Love by Sue Daley.
Sue Daley is a brilliant designer and this line is stunning.
Whenever I am using a Riley Blake line, I always start by looking at the Storyboard. In case you aren't aware of it, Riley Blake Designs makes a Storyboard for each collection that they come out with. It shows all the prints in the collection, shows the coordinating basics, the quilts/patterns designed to make with the line, and one the last page, the designer tells about their inspiration for the line. You can see the Storyboard for Faith, Hope, & Love- here.
I chose to make the Sue's pattern called Forever Quilt. I did the pattern slightly scrappier than shown. I used a fat quarter bundle and cut from that, keeping the colors where they are shown in the pattern but mixing up the prints in each color way. I also added two borders.
To make the top, I used the fat quarter bundle of Faith, Hope, & Love and Le Creme Swiss Dot Black (C600-110 Black). For the border, I used a Riley Blake Black Tone on Tone Calico (C740-110 Black), which I also used for the backing. For the second border, I used the main flower print in Cream (C10320-Cream). For the binding, I used the Charcoal Geo print (C10324-Charcoal).
For the batting, I used The Warm Company Warm 100.
I used my Janome Continental M7 to piece and quilt this quilt. For the quilting, I did free motion meandering loops.
