Riley Blake Designs Make It Modern Project Tour

I love modern art and modern quilting, so using Riley Blake Designs "Blossom" fabric made it easy to be creative with my quilt that I simply called "Flowers".

"Flowers"
52" x 60"


RBD "Blossom" fabric by Christopher Thompson comes in a variety of colors. I used Lemonzest, Peacock, Raspberry, Black, tone-on-tone White, and Holly in "Flowers". The binding is RBD Stripes in black and white.



Though I'm a fan of modern art forms, my great-great aunt, Josephine Hancock Logan, was definitely not into modern art. She published a book called "Sanity in Art" in 1937 and formed a "society" that was opposed to all forms of modernism, including abstract expressionism, cubism, and surrealism.


I think she'd change her mind if she were around to see all the amazing modern quilts that are out there!


The flowers are appliqued on the quilt and it was so easy with Heat n Bond Lite EZ Print Sheets*. I run the sheets through my inkjet printer...no tracing! Plus, the backing peels off without having to score it with a pin. I love that! *Affiliate link



Riley Blake Designs has the best striped fabrics in various widths and colors...I love using them for my bindings!


RBD "Blossom" fabrics make beautiful quilts by themselves or as accent fabrics. They make a perfect fabric to keep in your stash!

Another beautiful quilt, Carol. I love those little polka dots and the colors! I think I'm going to have to put Crafter's Edge 2 1/2" strip die on my wish list--that would make cutting those strips a little easier, maybe. :)

A sweet quilt, Carol! I love the narrow striped binding to contrast with the wide stripes in the quilt center. I really love that colorful dotted fabric collection. The sweet Eastery colors you selected make a perfect Spring quilt.

That's wonderfully bright and cheery. I really like what you did with the binding, and the flowers/vase are just the right size in the midst of that striped field. Another winner!

It's another bright and really happy quilt. Thanks for sharing your patterns too. I need to add this one to my list of 'must-make'.
