The Hand Picked Blog Tour


When Riley Blake asks if you want to be a part of one of their blog tours, for me the answer is always yes! Especially when it’s a bright and beautiful bundle like the gorgeous Hand Picked Collection by Tammie Green. The colors are so warm and fun, they remind me of summer.


I drew up a simple churn dash mini quilt that would show off each one of the prints in this collection. Such a fun and easy block to make measuring six inches each. It was a bit simple and smaller than I had wanted, so at the last minute I pulled a couple of my favorite prints and decided to add a churn dash boarder which I think framed it nicely and gave just the right pop of color I had been wanting.


I used the main red print that has beautiful big bouquets on it for the binding. I think I’m a bit picky when it comes to red fabrics but this color is right on, nice and bright. To add to the low volume of the mini quilt, I went with some of my favorite Riley Blake Swiss Dot fabrics in red and aqua. These tiny dots are really a great addition to any project.


In keeping with the vintage feel of the churn dash block, I added simple machine cross hatch quilting in Aurifil 50 weight #2311 which is just a bit off white and keeps the focus on the fabrics. This mini measures 26×26 inches. I am still debating weather to keep it right here in the corner of my dining room or to gift it to a friend, gifting handmade things is just the best, but it looks pretty at home right here too.


I just love that top little floral motif in aqua, don’t you? To see more of the Hand Picked Collection check out  Cassie Massolia on November 12th and Anjeanette Klinder November 19 and thank you for stopping by.
