Riley Blake Modern Quilt Guild Challenge

One of the extra challenges I signed up for has been bouncing around in my head.  I’m at less than a month away from when the Modern Quilt Guild Riley Blake challenge is due (Feb 7th thanks to an extension).  IMG_4739

We were sent a fat eighth bundle of six different Riley Blake fabrics.  The rules indicate that we can add any other Riley Blake fabric or any solid’s to our challenge quilt.  Our piece can be whatever we want as long as it’s quilted.  We also don’t have to use all of the fabrics that were sent to us.

As I was organizing my fabric between Christmas and New Year I was pulling out fabrics that I noticed were Riley Blake as well.  Here are the fabrics I have.IMG_4738

I may ad a bit of solid red to my idea but mostly I’ll be using fabrics from the stash you see here.  I’m actually going to do a block that I designed for a different Modern Quilt Challenge but I’m going to do it a bit differently.  I can’t wait to see if it’s as cool as it is in my mind!  I’ll keep you posted!


  1. Can't wait to see what you do. I've got my top finished and just need to set aside some time to baste so I can get quilting. All of a sudden, the deadline is less than a month away! It's sort of snuck up on me!

  2. Good news - you have an additional ten days to finish. The due date is Feb 17!

    These fabrics look wonderful together.

  3. Nice fabrics, can't wait to see your block!

    I follow your blog and have noticed with this new design, i can never find your newest post. at the top. It encourages looking around but is a bit disappointing when i still can't find it after 5 mins. Am I looking on the wrong places?

  4. Yes! I noticed that the other day! I'm trying to not think about it though because then I'll just push back working on it another ten days :)
