MQG Riley Blake Challenge Quilt: March 2018

I recently finished a quilt for the MQG Riley Blake fabric spring 2018 challenge. The quilt uses 4 fat eights selected for the challenge, plus fabrics I picked out to compliment those fabrics (white, aqua, and more stripes). I created the original design for this quilt from a design in Photoshop using Photoshop techniques like basic shapes, clipping masks and smart objects. I quilted my original design with Aurifil 50 weight thread using a walking foot.

I have this thing for stripes. Glue basting FTW today, making progress on the MQG Riley Blake challenge, sewing for sanity. #mqgfabricchallenge #rileyblakechallenge #rileyblakedesigns #wip #sewing #quilt #quilting #quilts #handmade #quiltsofinstagram #machinepieced #machinepiecing #aurifil #aurifilthread #juki #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #makemodern #modernquilting #modernquilt #modernquilts #originaldesign #quiltinprogress #quilttop #stephskardalquiltsmarch2018 #mqg #stripes ...

Keeping it weird for the MQG Riley Blake challenge! Original pattern designed in Photoshop with smart layers, shapes, and clipping masks. Squares will finish at 2”. #mqgfabricchallenge #rileyblakechallenge #rileyblakedesigns #wip #sewing #quilt #quilting #quilts #handmade #quiltsofinstagram #machinepieced #machinepiecing #aurifil #aurifilthread #juki #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #makemodern #modernquilting #modernquilt #modernquilts #originaldesign #quiltinprogress #quilttop #stephskardalquiltsmarch2018 #mqg #stripes ...

February was a disorienting month, sort of like how I feel when I look at these fussy cut Riley Blake stripes. I switched jobs with a rocky transition, had a few friends receive upsetting health news, had the flu-ish, and went to QuiltCon with that excitement. Astrid said yesterday, “Tomorrow is a new day!” I thought she was practicing being a motivational speaker, but then she went on to say “it’s March! With the Green Day, Easter (incorrect on that), spring, and my birthday!!!” She’s the funniest. #momlife #parenting #thisisparenting #thisisus #mqgfabricchallenge #rileyblakechallenge #rileyblakedesigns #wip #sewing #quilt #quilting #quilts #stripes #stephskardalquiltsmarch2018 ...

Getting started on the MQG Riley Blake Challenge. Now I’m waiting for the complimentary yardage that I’ll pair with the four fat eighths provided with the challenge. #mqgfabricchallenge #rileyblakechallenge #rileyblakedesigns #wip #sewing #quilt #quilting #quilts #handmade #quiltsofinstagram #machinepieced #machinepiecing #aurifil #aurifilthread #juki #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #makemodern #modernquilting #modernquilt #modernquilts #originaldesign #quiltinprogress #javascript #codequilt #coding #essexlinen #quilttop #stephskardalquiltsmarch2018 #mqg ...

Excited about this one. A little more quilting, binding, and a lot of threads to bury, for the MQG Riley Blake challenge. #themqg #mqgfabricchallenge #rileyblakedesigns #rileyblakefabric #quilt #quilting #quilts #sewing #machinequilting #machinequilted #aurifil #aurifilthread #wip #quiltinprogress #stephskardalquiltsmarch2018 #originaldesign #photoshop #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #modernquilt #modernquilting #modernquilts #machinepiecing #machinepieced #juki ...

Binding! Cut at 2”, usually straight grain but here I did on the bias, hand stitched with bumpless binding. I also usually put about two stitches on each side of the mitered corners. #igquiltfest #rileyblakedesigns #rileyblakefabric #quilt #quilting #quilts #sewing #machinequilting #machinequilted #aurifil #aurifilthread #wip #quiltinprogress #stephskardalquiltsmarch2018 #originaldesign #photoshop #makersgonnamake #creativelifehappylife #modernquilt #modernquilting #modernquilts #machinepiecing #machinepieced #juki #mqgfabricchallenge ...

Good morning #igquiltfest! Here is my trusted Juki, and killing two birds with one stone by sharing my updated MQG Riley Blake challenge progress. I bought my Juki last year after I went to QuiltCon 2017, thinking I wanted to become a better free motion quilter. But every time I piece something, I can’t bear to do anything other than walking foot + straight line quilting for fear of messing up. #mqgfabricchallenge #rileyblakedesigns #rileyblakefabric #sewing #originalpattern #juki #aurifil #aurifilthread #quilt #quilting #quilts #stephskardalquiltsmarch2018 ...
