Bijou Lovely & Brambleberry Ridge!

Hi there!  Today I just wanted to share with you a quilt I'm working on with Violet Craft's latest fabric line, Brambleberry Ridge.
Violet's fabric collections are always some of my favorites, and Brambleberry Ridge is no exception!  I just love how it's romantic, rustic, modern, and a little glam, all at the same time!  
One of the prints I love the most is Rosemilk, with those sweet little flowers and metallic triangles.  I wanted to play up the triangle concept a little so I decided to create some paper pieced triangle blocks.  
I love paper piecing, it makes for such precise blocks!  It's pretty simple too, especially if you make a big batch at one time.
I added large strips to each triangle strip to offset it within each block.  This way I can show off all those pretty prints!
I've still got several blocks left to add to make this a throw sized quilt, but I like where it's headed so far.
You can read more about my progress on this quilt, along with lots of other sewing projects and tutorials on my blog, Bijou Lovely

Thank you to Violet and the team at Michael Miller for sending me some of this gorgeous fabric to work with!

The colors are scrumptious. Triangles are a good way to make it look modern and fresh. I think I need to have those fabrics. After completing the recent MM challenge, I am openly admitting that I am besotted with MM, and modern quilts.
