FEATURING SHARKTOWN FABRICS FROM #RILEYBLAKEDESIGNS
Make this quick baby quilt, perfect for summertime naps, play or a gift for that special little one. This quilt features Sharktown fabrics by Shawn Wallace for Riley Blake Designs
It is so much fun to have this playful Riley Blake collection in the quilt shop this summer. I stitched up this campshirt and sundress (with matching doll dress) using patterns from Olive Ann and Fishsticks .
These fabrics are adorable so I couldn't stop there. I wanted to make a quilt with Sharktown . I wanted it to be something easy and sized right for little ones.
We have been featuring the churn dash block in our summer programs here in the shop this year, so I started my design with that . I plumped up the size of the block pieces to make it quick to do and to feature the prints in the collection without cutting them into squares that were too small, and the Chubby Churn Dash block was the result
SHARKTOWN + CHURN DASH = SHARKTOWN DASH
The Sharktown Dash Quilt is so quick to make you'll have it put together in no time at all. Start with some of fabric designer Shawn Wallace's Sharktown collection - stitch up six chubby churn dash blocks, add sashing, borders and you get this sweet Sharktown Dash quilt. (you could add more chubby churn dash blocks for a bigger quilt).
Sewing the 6 blocks:
Start by making 24 Half Square Triangle (HST) units using the 5 7/8" block squares and background squares.
Use the diagram below to add your sashing strips and outer borders.
Layer your quilt top with batting and backing. Quilt as desired.
Bind, add a label and enjoy your finished quilt.
Thank you so much for reading this blog post. If you decide to make this quilt, I hope you have as much fun as I did,
Until we blog again take time out to Enjoy the Sew!®- Carol
