Heart and Soul

Hello everyone!  Today I get to share a quilt that I just finished, using a new line of fabrics from Riley Blake Designs called Heart and Soul.  This line has a fun mix of my favorites - large florals, great geometrics, and text prints.

Heart and Soul is designed by Deena Rutter.  I love the large floral prints in this line - especially that navy print!

The pattern I used for this quilt is called Cheerful - and it's the perfect pattern for showing off your favorite medium and large scale prints like these.    I made the twin size, which finishes at 66" x 82" and uses 10 fat quarters.

You can see the rest of the Heart and Soul prints here on the Riley Blake website, as well as the storyboard for the line here.   There are a couple of really great panels included in this line too!  Heart and Soul fabrics are available in stores now.

Since we're heading into winter, I wanted this quilt to be extra snuggly so I found this perfect gray polka dot flannel from Riley Blake at my local quilt shop.  Doesn't it look great with that geometric pinwheels print?  I love the weight that a flannel backing gives to a quilt.  I usually use Hobbs 100% cotton batting and just a single layer of batting plus the flannel backing is enough to make a nice, cozy quilt.

You can find the Cheerful quilt pattern here in my shop (both paper and PDF patterns available), and find out more about Deena Rutter here on her blog.  She also has a website here called Seek Good Works - where you can find some of her art prints, jewelry, and other fun things!
