Four Corners Fabric Tour

Hi friends! I am so excited to share with you today a beautiful line of fabrics I had the pleasure of creating something with - Four Corners by Simple Simon and Co. for Riley Blake. This line has the perfect combination of black and white (my favorite) along with a perfect gray, a bright mustard yellow, a beautiful teal blue and a great shade of orange! There are also pops of metallic gold - so fun!

The great thing about being able to show you a project from this line is that you do not have to wait to buy it - it's available now! I received a beautiful fat quarter bundle from Liz and Elizabeth from Simple Simon and Co. and was able to create a beautiful quilt and still have some awesome scraps left over I plan on using on some pillows to match.

This quilt was a quick sketch on graph paper while watching cartoons with my son one night. The main strips measure 2.5" x 8.5" and the alternating strips at the top and bottom vary in length (2.5" / 4.5" /6.5" ). Once it was all laid out it was a quick sew and for the quilting I did a simple straight stitch along each side of the seam.

(I still need to add the binding to the quilt, I ran out of time before I left for quilt market today...oops! )

I took some pictures of the quilt out in my neighborhood yesterday, Fall in Chicago is pretty amazing especially when you have trees that are a perfect match to the fabric!

I loved working with this line, the colors truly made me happy and any chance I have to use a fun black and white line, I take it! Hope you enjoyed my stop on the Four Corners Tour today and be sure to check out all of the other fun projects on the schedule.
