Someday Blog Tour

Hello! Today I get to show you a pretty quilt I made using my friend Minki Kim's newest fabric for Riley Blake called Someday. I eagerly said yes to Minki when she asked if I would like to be on the tour. Her fabric is so cute! This line is really pretty with what I think is such a classic combination of pinks and blues with some creams and tans in the mix.

I started the quilt by hand piecing 60 degree diamonds into Tumbling Blocks but soon decided to turn them into 6 pointed stars. I have only used EPP for these in the past but chose traditional hand piecing this time mixed with machine piecing the rows together.

I used Riley Blake's Navy Stripe for the binding and the back is mostly Riley Blake Kisses in Peony with pieces of Someday I had left.

My youngest girl claimed this quilt right away. She loved the blue fabric with the chickens on it. Since we have chickens here at home and blue is her favorite color it was a perfect match!

I couldn't resist taking a picture with that big chicken! I thought it was pretty funny and appropriate with those cute little chicken prints in the Someday fabric line.

Thank you, Minki, for letting me be apart of the fun!

Have a great week friends!

Happy Sewing!

I'm sorry that I'm not commenting on this quilt but I haven't gotten to it yet. I started reading your posts from the beginning in 2009. I just read the post about the bonus HST from a stitch and flip method for triangle corners. I just finished several stitch and flips and when I was cutting the triangles off I kind of looked at them and said to myself "no, toss em in the crumb tub" because I knew I wasn't going to sew little triangles together. Thanks for the idea of stitching 1/2" away and having another ready made HST.

Now, back to 2010. I'll catch up one day.

I must tell you, again, that I love your quilts. This one looks almost like an antique or vintage quilt. Your color choices are always spot on and I am in love with your work. You know that. xo
