Fields of France Quilt!!!

 I was so excited when my good friends at Riley Blake Designs asked if I wanted to make this new Fields of France Quilt Kit!!!  I mean, how can you not get excited about all of that fall goodness in happy sunflower blocks!!  This quilt is designed by Sandy Gervais for her new fabric line Fall's In Town and I just love everything about it!!! 

This really was such a fun quilt to make!!!  I love that the blocks are big, so they went together pretty fast with some simple Stitch and Flip.   And I think my absolute favorite part of this quilt is the sashing, how cuter are those little x's tied into the plus sign.   Just such a creative way to sash the blocks!!!  

And I just loved working with all of these beautiful fall colors!!!   It is making me wish for the leaves to start falling and for the temperatures to cool off ;)    The prints in this line have such a fun fall flair to them as well.   I love the florals, little towns, and my favorite is the plaid!!!   This quilt finishes at 89" x 89" so it would work perfect for a queen size bed!!!  

And when it came time to quilt it, I decided to do a feather border and then loose feathers in the piecing to highlight the border.   And as soon as I quilted it, I realized how much loose feathers has a falling leaves look to it.  Which of course, made me smile :)   Good ol' 402 Pearl blended perfectly in all of these light and dark colors, my go to for the win every time!! 

And this quilt is actually on it's way to Garden of Quilts to be hung there.   So fun!!!  I can't wait to see it blowing in the breeze ;)  And now it is your turn to make your own, all you need is a Fields of France pattern, a Fall's In Town Fat Quarter Bundle, some Texture Yardage, and a Border print and you are set to sew :)  You are so going to love making this quilt!!! 

And that is it for my Fields of France Quilt ;)  I truly loved working on this project and am ao grateful to my friends at Riley Blake for making such cute kits!!!  

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day!!
