During my stitcher’s group quilting weekend at Grand Oak Retreat, I had great intentions of doing several projects but only was able to do two. When I was in Utah back in June, I found the Riley Blake Juxtaposey fabric and fell in love with it!
This was the display at Pine Needles in Utah!
I purchased five fat quarters at Pine Needles and ended up buying more on fabric.com.
I spent some time looking for a pattern that would really show off the prints on the fabrics. This is the one I ended up using was called Mix It Up in the McCalls Quilting magazine.
I spent most of Friday cutting out the fabric.
Saturday was spent figuring out the layout and then sewing it all together!
This is not the final product. By the time I got home and laid it out on my king bed, I realized I needed to add two more rows and then the borders.
I can’t wait to finish this project!
I pieced this quilt at the retreat too. It’s a Quilty Box project that I attempted to hand applique. I wasn’t fond of the applique pattern that was provided so I created my own.
Just got my long arm back from getting serviced and I’m ready to quilt like crazy this week!
