MQG Riley Blake challenge quilt

The MQG challenge for spring involved a fun set of fabrics from Riley Blake.

My goal for my mini was to try for an improv minimalist quilt, using just a little bit of each of the fabrics.   I like the little navy shapes on the white print and am in so in love with the 1/8'' stripe that I only wanted to use a little.  (Not sure what I'm saving it for but I love it!)  I used denim as the primary color.

For the quilting, I did a lot of improv big stitch quilting, basically just had fun adding texture!

The actual color of the denim is somewhere between these two photos!  The quilt is faced and I finished that up last week while we were at the beach

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. I am falling in love with the big stitch technique. Do you mark the lines or just eyeball it? If you mark, what do you use?

  2. Oops...forgot about that challenge. Must. Find. Fabric. LOL Your mini turned out great.

  3. Love those big stitches Patty. What a unique and pretty little quilt.

  4. It’s lovely. Love that big stitch texture.

  5. Awesome design with the fabric, the hand stitching gives such a great texture.


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
