Sundown in the Garden Quilt Featuring Sweetbriar + Free PDF Pattern

Guest Post by Melissa Corry:

I was so excited when my good friends at Riley Blake Designs asked if I wanted to make this new Sundown in the Garden Quilt Kit!!!  I mean, how can you not get excited about all of that patchwork goodness in such happy prints!!  This quilt is designed by Riley Blake Designs for the new fabric line Sweetbriar designed by Rachel Erickson and I just love it!!! 

This really was such a fun quilt to make!!!  Just Half Square Triangles and simple patchwork and this goes together in no time.   It is a great lap size to whip up, and finishes at 61″ x 73″ so you can snuggle up in it as well!! Isn’t it just so fun to see classic blocks redone in cute sashed settings and happy prints and colors!!!  

The design is Fat Quarter friendly, so you can grab a Sweetbriar bundle, and a bit of yardage for sashing, cornerstones, and a border.   I love getting to show off my favorite fabrics in the borders, it is just so fun 🙂  Especially when the patchwork is small and doesn’t show the larger scale prints as much 😉  And speaking of small patchwork, my 2 1/2″ BlocLoc ruler was so helpful for this project!!! 

And when it came time to quilt it, I decided to do some fun custom quilting.  I can’t help but do arches when I have such perfectly pieced squares in a grid.   And then some ribbon candy in the sashing and swirls in the border to add lots of texture.   And I love that I can always count on So Fine 402 Pearl to blend perfectly in all of these light and dark colors, It’s my go to for the win every time!! 

And this quilt is now ready to be gifted for one of those special occasions!! I just love sharing quilty hugs with friends and family!!!    And now it is your turn to make your own!!  You can find the free Sundown in the Garden pattern at the Riley Blake Free Patterns Page   You are so going to love making this quilt!!!
