Confetti Cotton – Union Star Quilt

Fabric really is our fun here at Riley Blake Desigins, and we love nothing more than playing with our Confetti Cotton solids!

When we spotted the Union Square Quilt over at We All Sew, we knew we had to give it a go! And the best part is that We All Sew offers it as a FREE TUTORIAL, so you can make your very own!

The quilt is made up of giant half square triangles, which makes this a quick and oh, so satisfying make — perfect for beginners and experts alike. We love the color palette featured in the original quilt, but for our quilt, we decided to change it up a bit with a deeper, richer mix of colors.

Our color palette is made up of Fuschia, Mustard, Jade, Hint of Mint, Nutmeg, and Persimmon.

We opted for some lovely swirly quilting to counteract the straight, geometric lines in this quilt design.

Really, almost any quilting design you like would look fantastic. Straight lines, stippling, meandering, etc.

Using strictly solid colors instantly transforms a traditional block into its modern counterpart. It’s always amazing to see how different a quilt can look and feel simply be changing color or print.

For the quilt back, we used Blossom basics in Jade.

LOVE this quilt! You’ll find the FREE tutorial HERE courtesy of We All Sew.
