Loving the new Sparkling Rose Gold fabric by Riley Blake!


My niece Lindsay is headed to college this Fall and she has asked for quilt throw for her dorm room with rose gold.  She is doing her entire dorm room in rose gold and white.  Apparently it's the latest colors.  She is very stylish and even has her own YouTube Channel.  She is a star in my humble opinion.  Her educational goals is journalism and acting.  So I set out to find some fabric to do the job  I was so excited to find Riley Blake just came out with a new fabric called Sparkling Rose Gold (they also have gold ones too).  As you can see, Boris loves the new quilt top!   The boys (cats babies) always climb up to see what I'm doing and even help me!




They also have a sparkle GOLD collection so make sure you pick between the rose gold and the gold fabrics!  I got mine from this Etsy seller but I have seen it now at FatQuarterShop.  I am sure many more vendors with start carrying this wonderful line as it releases.    



This is my niece Lindsay.  She is headed to Towson State in Maryland and she plans on studying journalism.  She is already a public figure by having her own YouTube channel.  It's called "LindsayMurrayBeauty".  It's for high school girls or college age women.  She is such a sweet girl with a good spirit.  She teaches make up and shows clothing ideas.  Captain of her cheerleading high school team, honor roll, volunteer at SPCA of Maryland, nice to everyone and adorable.  Love her so much.  



I used freezer paper applique techniqe to make the monogram letters and the circle the letters will be appliqued on.  How did I do it?  I downloaded a free font from the internet and printed it out on paper and then traced the reverse side of the letters onto the freezer paper.  I cut the shapes out and then ironed them onto the back side of the hashtag fabric.  Then I cut the fabric slightly larger than the shaped (about 1/8") for purposes of turning it to the back.  The extra fabric then was glued with a glue stick to the back of the letters, making small cuts in the 1/8" fabric wherever turning needing assistance for pleating the fabric more easily.  I used a toothpick to add the glue and for folding the 1/8" edge to the back of the letter.  I then left the letter to dry under a heavy book.  The next day I appliqued the letters to the quilt top.  After it was attached, I cut a slit into the back of the fabric it was appliqued to so I could remove the paper.  Wetting it under warm water made the glue melt and allowed the paper to be removed perfectly.  Below shows the completed results!  Love it!








I used every piece of the fat quarters I bought!  There is lots of piecing going on here to use all the stash.  I have decided to use the hashtags for the binding.  Stay tuned for the final product.  I will be machine quilting this one since it's going to be well used in the dorm and I don't think it will be a collectors piece.
