Riley Blake Quilt Kit

Quilting is one of my favorite hobbies. I often make quilts for gifts or simply to challenge myself beyond my comfort zone. However, I find it tedious to match the fabric patterns and then spend hours cutting all the intricate pieces. Cricut now makes adorable quilting kits that take all the hard work out of the process. I was thrilled to be able to try one!

Riley Blake Quilt with Cricut : Part 1 | Chambray Blues | www.chambrayblues.com

The Riley Blake Daisey Days throw quilt was perfect for cuddling on cool summer evenings on the porch. I adore Riley Blake fabrics and was thrilled to get a kit with all the planning and thinking already done for me! This kit comes with coordinating fabrics that you can use to make several different designs. My choice for this quilt was the Spinning Wheels design, one that I have admired for a long time but never attempted.

Each design is labeled with the quilting level of expertise required so it’s easy to make an educated choice and get the one that best suits your abilities. This Spinning Wheels design is for an intermediate or advanced quilter, mostly because of the number of seams that need to be matched to complete the pattern.

Cricut also makes cutting mats, rulers, rotary cutters and other sewing tools. Mine tools were in bad shape, and I was so excited to see new ones arrive in the mail!

The first step in the process is choosing a quilt kit in  Cricut Design Space. I decided this would be best explained in a video tutorial:

Supplies Needed

Preparing the Fabric

1. Print the Spinning Wheels PDF cutting directions from the Cricut Design Space. Read through the directions.

2. Remove fabrics from the Riley Blake Quilting Kit while placing them in the order to be cut according to directions.

3. Press fabrics using either an EasyPress (set on 196 degrees) or a traditional iron until smooth.

My next tutorial in the Riley Blake Quilt series will walk you through cutting the quilt pieces with your Cricut. Be sure to stop back for part 2 of this tutorial which is coming soon!
