i was beyond thrilled when simple simon and company creators asked me to join their four corners fabric collection tour! fans of their work, i knew this collection from riley blake designs would be nothing short of awesome, so i couldn't say no! today is the launch of their tour and i'm up first!
i love how bold and graphic the collection is and was immediately drawn to the black color ways. the metallic accents on a few of the prints is a wonderful surprise. the black and gold border print is unique and so versatile (don't tell anyone, but i'm saving it for a special home dec project).
i decided a wonky star mini quilt would be perfect and depending on how you piece some of the prints, they create the illusion of a curve. it's kind of fabulous!
this was also my first time machine binding. after watching the missouri start quilt company machine binding tutorial (maybe, just maybe a few hundred times!) i was ready to dive off the deep end. trust me, i prefer hand binding, but going slow, i conquered my fears and it turned out pretty well (if i say so myself!).
out later this fall/winter, the four corners fabric collection is perfect for any project.
