Something Borrowed Quilt + Split Stars

Happy July everyone!  I have a quilt to share with you today, along with a new fabric line by Christopher Thompson (a.k.a. The Tattooed Quilter).

This pretty line is called Something Borrowed and it will be arriving in shops this month!  You can see more of it here on the Riley Blake website.

So here's a fun fact about me.  I decided in the 5th grade that my favorite color was blue and it's been that way ever since.  

Every blue.  All blues.  Love them all.  On top of that, blue has been one of the school colors at EVERY school I've ever attended.  Crazy, huh?  

I was just meant to be a blue fan.  And this line is SO right up my alley.

To show off these lovely blue prints, I decided to re-make my Split Stars quilt  - it was originally in Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine a couple of years ago.  

But don't worry about trying to dig up the magazine...I'll be making a new version of the pattern available in my shop on Monday - with 3 new sizes added in!

I just love the combination of florals and geometric prints in this line.  And Christopher did a great job at finding the perfect soft grays that complement both the navy and the light blue prints.

And I have to give him a big ol' high five for including a bias stripe in his line - my#1 choice for a quilt binding. Isn't it great?

You can find Something Borrowed here at the Fat Quarter Shop and look for it in your local quilt shops soon!  

Happy sewing, and I'll see you on Monday with more information about the Split Stars new pattern.
