Feels Like Home Patterns

Tuesday, May 7, 2024

 Hi!  Did you see my last blog post with my big announcement?  I have a new fabric collection with Riley Blake Designs coming out any day!  It should be shipping to stores this week!

It's called Feels Like Home and it's full of warm browns, deep pinks, navy blue, forest green, teal, and gold.  Plus 10 different low-volume prints.  It's so scrappy and I hope you love it!

Today I want to share more about the 4 new patterns I designed to go along with the collection:
Star Tiles, Welcome Wreath, Feels Like Home, and Family Ties.

First up is Star Tiles:

It's full of itty bitty 4" stars that are framed and set with some simple sashing that creates a fun secondary design.

It comes with instructions for 3 quilt sizes: crib, throw, and queen.
The skill level is "confident beginner".

This is the throw-size quilt and Jen Ostler in Highland, UT quilted it for me with the Plaid Stars panto.
This was a new-to-me panto and I think it's really fun!  

Next up, is Welcome Wreath!

It's a fun Flying-Geese pattern that comes with instructions for 3 different quilt sizes: lap, throw, and full.  I made the throw-size.  The skill level is "confident beginner".

I just love the quilting on this one.  Jen Ostler quilted it with the Lovely Loops panto.  It reminds me of meandering eucalyptus leaves which is perfect for these "wreaths"!

The quilting shows up so well on the back.  I used Riley Blake Confetti Cottons in Chive for this one.

As per usual, Jen quilted a hidden object into the quilting.  Do you see the little house with a heart inside (below)?  Isn't it the cutest!?!  Totally matches the Feels Like Home logo, selvages, etc.!

The third pattern I designed is called Feels Like Home.  I haven't made this one yet because I am doing a quilt-along for it this summer!  I'm so excited and hope you'll join me.  I'll be announcing more details about it soon.

This pattern finishes at 92" x 92".  It's big!  The roof units are paper-pieced and the rest of it is traditionally pieced.  It will be a fun, scrappy make!  The skill level is "intermediate" (I will be making a video tutorial for the house blocks, if you're nervous.)  You can grab the pattern HERE.  You probably don't know this but the first quilt I ever made was a scrappy courthouse steps pattern.  So this is my little homage to my first quilt!

And finally, the last pattern I designed for this fabric collection is called Family Ties.

It will be a free pattern on the Riley Blake website.  It will be available very soon.  I'll link to it here when it's ready.  The skill level is "beginner".

This pattern is so simple and quick to make but I loooove it!  It really shows off the fabrics and quilting!  It uses 5" and 10" Stackers.  I'm kind of dying to make another one soon.

Jen Ostler quilted it with another new-to-me pantograph called Madi Rose.  Jen has such awesome pantos and is so awesome to work with.  She is the best!!!  The tiny heart is the hidden object on that quilt.

Oh, and I added one of my favorite labels from Ever Emblem.  They're so easy to sew into the binding so I don't have an excuse to not label my quilts!  I get the 2" cotton, fold-over, sew-in labels.  If you want to get some for yourself, you will just have to pick one of their basic cotton labels and customize it from there.

Sooo...do you have a favorite of the new patterns I shared today?
I love them all and can't decide!
