{Riley Blake Designs} Dream by Kristy Lea


Hello Summer!  It's ridiculous how fast Spring flew on by and here we are halfway through June.  It's already crazy hot and humid so this post came at the perfect time.  My youngest needed a new summer dress and what's more fun than a Rainbow Dress with a Cloud and Rain bodice?!

"Dream" by Kristy Lea for Riley Blake Designs is full of color!  My daughter has never met a rainbow print she hasn't loved and this collection is pure love for her.   Just look at the array of colors!!   My only regret was not adding in a set of fat quarters in each of the colors for a fun rainbow feature.

We selected Dream in Color Cobalt for the the main print and coordinated it with Dream Raindrops Rainbow and Confetti Cottons Cloud.

It took a little while to decide on a pattern, but after my daughter and I looked through past sews, she really liked Eden by Little Lizard King because the scalloped bodice overlay looks like a cloud.  Of course I had to put the Raindrops coming from the cloud!

I especially love that the columns of rainbows are perfectly spaced so I could center the raindrops in the middle of the criss-cross straps.

Here's a close up of the cloud and rain bodice.  I also love adding a matching bow so I fussy cut a Nara Bow and cheated a little with the tying so I could feature a raincloud there too!

Dream is coming to a quilt shop near you (or if you prefer online shopping, there's lots right at your fingertips...).  What plans do you have for this colorful collection?
