Sweet Orchard by Sedef Imer
for Riley Blake Designs

Sweet Orchard is Sedef Imer's debut collection for Riley Blake Designs. And how sweet it is? The collection features a  range of small scale floral and fruity designs supported by a variety of excellent stash basics ~ bias stripes, text, and dots.

When designing the collection Sedef set out to combine all her favorite fabric design elements that weren't readily available in the market: "Fabric that brings flowers and fruit together, not just strawberries and cherries but other orchard fruit also - apples, oranges, and pears."  The collection therefore also includes sought after and often used blender fabrics - bias stripes and random dots - in a range of colors (including grey!).

Bobbie Lou's Fabric Factory and a Giveaway!

A sponsored giveaway.


Bobbie Lou's Fabric Factory is an online fabric store owned and managed by Chelsea Graham. The store is inspired by and named after Chelsea's grandmother, Bobbie Lou. Bobbie Lou was an amazing seamstress and spent most of her free time sewing clothes, dolls, and other beautiful items for her daughters and grandchildren. This is where it began for Chelsea; love for fabric and handmade items was instilled at an early age and it goes without saying then that at Bobbie Lou's you'll find a great range of modern and designer fabrics.

Slow and Steady by Tula Pink
Slow and Steady by Tula Pink
The Bobbie Lou's Fabric Factory website is easy to navigate and you can easily browse by manufacturer, designer, color, or style. Fabric can be ordered in 1/4 yard increments including fat quarters which I think is a huge bonus.
Les Fleurs by Rifle Paper Co.

Chelsea tends to gravitate towards the vibrant and eclectic, selling fabrics that she truly loves and would love to sew with myself. The latest fabric collections to arrive include Slow and Steady by Tula Pink, the popular Les Fleurs by Rifle Paper Co, and Nightfall by Maureen Cracknell.

The Finished Scrapbuster Quilt

A Scrapbuster Quilt | © Red Pepper Quilts 2016

I am a creature of habit and if you were to pop by my home you are likely to find me at my sewing machine making a quilt, however when the going gets tough and I unexpectedly lose a few days because life happens you are then likely to find me making a simple patchwork quilt preferably from fabric pulled from my scrap bin. The ritual and routine of patchwork piecing brings so much joy!

And so this quilt is all about the fabrics, the prints, and the abundance of color. No specific color palette for this quilt, instead I have embraced the all over scrappy (and colorful) look. I have included many of may favorite prints as well as fussy cut numerous fun novelty prints to feature animals, birds, faces, fruits, accessories etc.

The finished quilt measures 60 inches x 75 inches and I have ditch stitched all seam lines, thereby creating an all over 2.5 inch grid of intersecting lines and giving the quilt a lovely soft hand without adding or taking anything away from the fabrics that are the feature of this quilt.

The back of the quilt features a single text fabric ~ Newsprint from the Story collection by Carrie Bloomston ~ an old favorite. And I have matched it with my signature black and white stripe fabric (by Timeless Treasures) for the binding.

Sunday Stash #351 Thicket by Gingiber

Thicket by Gingiber - Stacie Bloomfield for Moda Fabrics | © Red Pepper Quilts 2016
Thicket by Gingiber - Stacie Bloomfield
for Moda Fabrics

Thicket is Stacie Bloomfield's first collection for Moda Fabrics and it is a winner! Stacie is an illustrator and founded Gingiber (an illustrative paper goods & homewares store) in 2009 when she wasn't able to find the perfect art to hang in her baby girl’s nursery. Stacie created her own signature style of art prints, pillows, and tea towels, with inspiration drawn from heirloom quilt patterns, animals, and simple color palettes.

Thicket is a collection of visually enchanting black and white patterns and panels forest creatures (panels not shown here). I love the simple strokes, lines, and crosshatches of Stacie's designs; patterns that suit minimalist and modern quilters and designs that are great stash basics. I also love that we are given the option of a clean white fabric base or a natural "linen look" fabric background for all of the prints.

By the way, the panels (featuring bears, owls, bunnies, and foxes) that are part of this collection are adorable! You can see the available panels here.
