Vintage Kitchen

A few weeks ago I got the chance to sew with fabric from one of Riley Blake's newest fabric lines - called Vintage Kitchen.  It's designed by Andrea Muller (JoliJou) a talented graphic designer & blogger from Germany.

These are just a few of the prints in the line - I'm in love with the pink dishes, but my favorite print is that brown print on top!  Isn't it fun?

These small scale prints are so cute when they're cut small so I thought I'd use them in a traditional 16-patch quilt.  Each little square is cut at 2.5" and made into a 16-patch block that measures 8.5".

I used 8 different prints from the Vintage Kitchen line to make this throw size quilt.  I love the bright, cheery colors - and all those little prints are so fun together!

Here's the full quilt- measuring 50" x 59"

For the binding I used one of my other favorite prints - this harlequin print in teal.

You can see the full line here on the Riley Blake website (and it's available now in stores!)  and read more about Andrea here on her blog.  Right now there's a blog tour going on and you can find the links for each day below.  It's been so fun to find some creative new bloggers to follow!  (Did you know if a blog is in another language, google can translate it for you?  Love that feature.)
