Friday Fabric Refresh - Stitched by Fig Tree

Happy Friday!  I’m back today with another edition of Friday Fabric Refresh, where I refresh some of my quilt patterns in new, fresh fabric!  Lately, I’ve been featuring a lot of what I think would be considered more “modern” fabric collections from Ruby Star Society and Art Gallery Fabrics.  While I definitely feel like my fabric style has evolved a little over the last few years, I still really love the more traditional styles like Fig Tree from Moda Fabrics.  Joanna of Fig Tree has captured that classic Fig Tree feel with her latest collection, Stitched.

This collection is so pretty and is perfect is you’re looking to make a cheery quilt.  The first quilt that I have refreshed is Stay Square.  This is a fast and fun layer cake quilt that really lets the fabric shine!  For the accent, I used one of the Bella Solids that coordinates with Stitched called Latte (Bella 9900-245).

Friday Fabric Refresh - Daybreak by Fran Gulick for Riley Blake Designs

Happy Friday!  Are you ready for another edition of Friday Fabric Refresh?  If you’re new around here, FFR is where I refresh some of my patterns in new fabric so you can see what they would look like.  Sometimes it’s hard to imagine what a quilt will look like in fabric that is different than the pattern cover.  Since a lot of fabric becomes hard to find after a little while and designers can’t constantly update our pattern covers, my hope is that seeing some of my quilts in new fabric will help you envision your project and feel more confident about your fabric choices.

Sometimes I feature a specific quilt pattern but more often I feature a recent fabric collection that I love!  Today that collection is Daybreak from RileyBlake Designs.  This is the debut collection by Fran Gulick of Cotton & Joy and she has knocked it out of the park!  I love the colors, I love the prints.  I’m currently working on a quilt using Daybreak but I probably won’t be able to share that for a while.  In the meantime, I’m sharing a few of my current patterns that I’ve refreshed in Daybreak.  Let’s get started!

Friday Fabric Refresh - Camellia by Melody Miller for Ruby Star Society

Happy Friday!  If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen the post that I made a week ago where I gave you an early sneak peek at one of this week’s Friday Fabric Refresh quilts.  If you saw it, you know that this week is all about Camellia by Melody Miller for Ruby Star Society.  

If you missed it, you can see that quilt below.  It is my Evening Glow pattern and I am obsessed with that dark green print from the collection as the background.  Like I said on IG, I am so, so tempted to buy myself a fat quarter bundle of Camellia and the yardage to make this.  I love it so much!  I really, really, don’t need more fabric though so I am trying to resist.

Happy Fri....Wednesday??  I know, I know, I call these posts "Friday Fabric Refresh" but I just couldn't wait until Friday this time! I have a fun surprise at the end of this post so make sure to read all the way to the end!

Are you a fan of the Moda Bake Shop?  If so, you will love the newest Moda Bake Shop book, Did Someone Say Cake which was released earlier this year.  If you have not checked it out yet, you need to!  It features 12 quilts made with layer cakes which are precut 10" squares.

I have a quilt in the book called Spice Cake, which you can see below.

Friday Fabric Refresh - Mad About Plaid in Quilts & More Magazine

Happy Friday!  If you're in the US, I hope you're getting ready for a long weekend!  A couple of weeks ago, a new issue of Quilts & More magazine hit newsstands.  It is their summer issue and the quilt on the cover is my pattern!  The magazine editors are calling it Mad About Plaid and you can see it below.

I used Riley Blake Confetti Cotton Solids for my quilt.  The exact colors are Brick, Ballerina, Off White, and Riley Navy.

When I posted about this quilt on social media recently, I asked if there were other color combinations that you wanted to see this quilt refreshed with.  There were several great suggestions and I tried to get them all.  I'm also sharing some of my own refreshed versions of Mad About Plaid.  So get ready for quilt mockup overload!

Friday Fabric Refresh - Shine On by Sharon Holland for Art Gallery Fabrics

Happy Friday!  I recently bought a fat quarter bundle of Shine On by Sharon Holland for Art Gallery Fabrics.  I was planning to make a sample of a future pattern that I'm working on, but once I had the fabrics in my hands, I changed my mind and am going to make a different future pattern instead.  The fabrics are so pretty that I would love to buy more and make multiple quilts!  I already have too much fabric and not enough time, so I'm trying really hard to resist!  

Luckily, with my Electric Quilt 8 software, I can do the next best thing and "make" as many quilts as I want by creating mockups using Shine On digital fabric swatches!  I refreshed a few of my quilt patterns and I'm sharing them here today.

Friday Fabric Refresh - Stay Gold by Melody Miller for Ruby Star Society

Happy Friday! I'm extra excited today because my day job added Martin Luther King Day as a company holiday this year so I have a three-day weekend! I'm also excited because the long-awaited Ruby Star Society collection Stay Gold is finally arriving in stores!  I think the precuts have been out for a bit, but the yardage is finally here.  To celebrate, I'm featuring Stay Gold for my latest edition of Friday Fabric Refresh!

 

Stay Square quilt in Stay Gold fabric

When I first saw this collection, I thought it was too bright for my tastes.  I don't often choose very bright saturated fabrics.  After seeing some of the quilt mockups included in Moda's catalog, I decided to give it a try.  I snagged an early release layer cake months ago and made a second sample of my recent Stay Square quilt pattern.  

I liked it so much that I redid the cover of my pattern at the last minute so that Stay Gold could be featured as the cover quilt!  If you want to see more of my Stay Gold Stay Square quilt (say that three times fast!), you can check out the blog post here.

This is not the first time I've shared a mockup in Stay Gold in a Friday Fabric Refresh post:

You can see it in my Log Jam pattern here and here.

You can see it in my Town Hall pattern here.  

You can see it in my Metro pattern here.

 

This collection has continued to grow on me so I had to give it its very own post.  It also seems to be very popular as I've already heard rumors of it selling out at some shops!
