I know it's been forever since I wrote, but that doesn't mean I haven't been sewing! First on the docket after the Christmas holidays was to work on my Riley Blake fabric challenge quilt, hosted by the Modern Quilt Guild.
The lovely folks at Riley Blake sent a selection of stash-builder prints to participating Modern Quilt Guilds. Members could use the fabric to make anything they wanted, but could only add other Riley Blake fabrics and/or solids.
I'm sure you've been seeing the Anna Maria Horner "Feather Quilt" floating around the interwebs. It's super gorgeous, and I'd been wanting to make a few feathers for awhile. I decided to use my RB fabric, a bunch of solids to fill out the rainbow color scheme, and several linen/white/cream background fabrics to make a small feather quilt for my challenge entry.
I made an extra block and used this Collage print as the background to make a little quilted pressie for my BFF. I've never done any hand quilting, but this little project seemed like the perfect chance to give it a shot with some perle cotton.
Did you participate in the Riley Blake challenge? There are lots of fab entries that I've seen out there . . . . ! :-)
