A few months ago, Brenda Ratliff owner of Pink Castle Fabrics and brand new fabric designer for RJR fabrics contacted me and asked me if I’d like to make something with her debut fabric collection, Pie Making Day.
When I saw the prints and colors I jumped at the chance. I think they’re so fun! This collection is definitely vintage-inspired but with some colors and geometric prints that would work well into modern quilts as well.
Here’s a view of the range of prints in each color. I’m especially smitten with that dark pink and the dark teal. Nice saturated tones in colors I’m low on. Lots of great blenders in this collection as well.
I have a new quilt design/pattern all sketched out for this bundle. I’m pairing the Pie Making Day fabric with the RJR Cotton Supreme solid Gale Force gray. I’ve been anxious to get started but had a some deadlines to wrap up first, not to mention a stack of quilt tops that just need backs pieced so I can get them off to the quilters…
With a big deadline crossed off my list yesterday, last night I couldn’t wait any longer and started cutting into that stack. I pulled out my AccuQuilt GO cutter (I used the 4″ finished HST square die) and made quick work of a stack of half-square triangle blocks (same size I used for my Spectrum quilt). I got the whole thing cut out last night while watching So You Think You Can Dance with my girls.
