A Quilt Of Tranquility By Riley Blake Designs

I think we all need a break from "the virus" and some "Tranquility" by Riley Blake Designs 
is a perfect way to find some peace. Their new fabric collection by Gerri Robinson of 
Planted Seed Designs fills the need for sure. The fabrics are gorgeous!

The fabrics are 100 percent cotton and are perfect for clothing, home decor, or other projects.

"Tranquility Garden" measures 50" x 50"

The wagon wheel left by the previous owner of our new house makes a fun prop for quilts!

Quilting was by Ginger Turner of Sew Sassy Longarm

Riley Blake Designs basic Confetti Cotton Solid Steel was the perfect gray.

You can find "Tranquilty Garden" HERE.

Making the Dresden in the center was so easy because I used Crafter's Edge fabric die, 
Rounded Dresden. It easily cuts up to six petals at a time and comes in two sizes. Love it!

The oldest Monkey Boy was "The Crew" this time. Silly boy is barefoot standing on rocks. Ouch!

  1. Those colors are so relaxing anyhow and the grey makes it look like a dream!

  2. Love those blues! I've always thought a blue and white quilt would be lovely. I sure do like yours!

  3. Oh yes, I love those colors! Great little quilt, Carol.

  4. Love the quilt and the wagon wheel is cool. I want a wagon wheel too, lol. But I do have that same obelisk (just one, you have 3).

  5. Hello Carol. I am a huge fan of Riley Blake fabrics as well as blues. They are scrumptious! The dresdon design in the middle is so pretty in those fabrics - LOVE IT!

  6. I know, I am back. After revisiting your blog I noticed that it is a double dresdon. I just cannot get over how pretty it is. I also favor the final outside border of squares floating in white.

  7. What a beautiful collection of blues. Your quilt is awesome. How did I miss your blog hop? I am subscribed but sometimes they go to spam. Next one.

  8. Your monkeys are getting so big. They do grow fast
    I am happy that your biggest one got to display your lovely quilt! This is sweet fabric and I love double dresdens!!

  9. These fabrics have me "singing the blues.":-)

  10. Beautiful fabrics, just the kind I like! It's great to see your wonderful finish with glimpses of your new backyard. I'm so jealous - you have lantana! It will grow here, but doesn't survive the winter. In AZ, it grows year-round, and covers whatever you want covered. LOL It's probably my favorite flower.

  11. Love the look of the rounded Dresden!

  12. Beautiful quilt and definitely a calm one..
