We are all totally stoked on these new quilted cottons from Riley Blake! They are brand new, and already super popular! These fabrics feature some of Riley Blake’s most popular designs: chevrons, skulls, mustaches, and glasses! Each fabric is backed with a complementary polka-dot, and quilted using a soft poly batting!

The most awesome thing about these fabrics is how quickly you can whip up a cute handmade project! All you need is some bias tape for binding and you’ll have an adorable quilt! It pretty much makes itself, talk about instant gratification :)

For my quick and easy baby blanket I chose the cream glasses and dots, plus Chinese red kona solid for binding! I used Katrina’s bias tape tutorial to make my binding, but you could also just buy some pre-made bias tape by the yard!

Once my bias tape was made, I used my trusty Janome DC2013 machine to attach the binding! Super easy and super fast, this blanket probably took about 15 minutes to sew up once I had my bias tape made! I think it took me longer to choose my fabrics than it did to actually make!

Instant handmade baby blanket! Talk about a perfect gift for baby showers! We are completely in love with these fabrics and we hope you enjoy them too! We can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Happy sewing!
