I also did the tutorial for 
during that same week 

Last week before today's 
 big finish I did a tutorial 
on how to make this 
cute little label for your quilt.

for that tutorial

I also showed you how I 
prepare and trim up my blocks 
after appliqué so that they
 are ready to sew into the quilt!!

I love how all of these Flea Market fabrics...
the Flea Market Roses wideback
 and the Coral large Vintage Trim 
all go together to finish up the quilt!
if you want to know how I 
bind my quilts and sew the
 Vintage Trim inside if the binding.

I took a lot of pictures of my
 finished quilt so that you could see 
it up close and personal...
and especially see how it looks
 machine quilted and also machine appliqued.

The wind was blowing and it 
blew the corner of the quilt back
 just so that you could see the label!

I could not have 
planned that even if I tried:)

My friend Juli Stubbs quilted it 
and as always she did an amazing job.

I asked her to quilt an overall pattern
 on this one instead of custom quilting it
 and I absolutely love
 the way that it turned out.

The quilting pattern that she used is one of my very favorite and I use it quite often.
It's called Baptist Swirl.

Afterwards I came inside 
and hung it up in my sewing room 
for the closeup shots.

This quilt was really and truly 
a pure joy to make.
I had so much fun with it 
and I hope that you did as well!

Next up...I wanted to 
let you know some exciting news!!
  I have started a new series called 
Sew Simple Shapes 
Each month I am designing 
a new applique block 
using my Sew Simple Shapes.

The block will be released 
within the Riley Blake Designs Newsletter 
that comes to your email 
on the 3rd Wednesday of every month.
if you are not yet subscribed 
to the newsletter.

On the third Friday of each month 
I will do a video tutorial 
of that months block on my 
YouTube Channel.

that I did for this months ReMix Block:)
