I am so happy to celebrate the release of the Riley Blake's Dream by Kristy Lea.
Her fabrics are full of bright colors and happy rainbows.
I love the dress I made with her debut collection, Create. I had hoped to make something similar this year, but demand was high for the advance yardage on my top picks. I had to adjust my plans, but with all the the great choices available, I was good.
I chose an assortment from the collection and thought it would be a perfect opportunity for me to practice my beginner quilting skills. I decided to use my Quilt Cadets Moonbeam Pillow pattern by the amazing Latifah Saafir Studios and Little Pincushion Studio.
This pattern is really fun to make and it helped me build my confidence with the walking foot.
On the second pair, I used Dream Drift Melon with an added a ricrac rainbow racing stripe.
To continue along the Dream theme, I decided to make some pajama shorts and a coordinating t-shirt for myself.
I used the free drawstring pant pattern from the free Sew Quick + Easy Beginner pattern collection that I edited for Sew News. For the first pair, I used Dream Drift Green and accented it with rainbow ricrac for a scalloped hem on the shorts and on the pocket trim.
I will be running away this weekend with some girlfriends and will be packing my pillow, pjs and sleep masks. I plan to have a fun-filled, wild time. I will have busy days, but when I stop at night, I will rest, sleep and dream.
