Welcome to the Fall Gatherings Sew Along that I'm hosting for my friends at Riley Blake Designs!
This SAL is running from October 4th – November 7th, so this is week #3! Here are the previous blog posts:
- SAL announcement (September 24th)
- Week #1 (Oct 4th)
- Week #2 (Oct 11th)
To recap, I'm featuring the quilt pattern by Sandy Gervais finishes at 74" X 74" with adorable fall-themed blocks! You can get the pattern HERE from the Fat Quarter Shop.
I'm sewing a solid version of this pattern with Riley Blake's Confetti Cottons Solids!
These are the solids I'm using. I love how bright and vibrant they are, but I feel like the quilt still has a fall vibe to it! You can grab these solids here at the Fat Quarter Shop.
For Block 3, I used Teddy Bear, Butterscotch, Riley Orange, and Peacock. The Peacock's turquoise color is very striking here!
For Block 6, I used Mac 'N Cheese, Olive, and Peacock.
Her whole quilt comes together beautifully!
Don't forget that to work on your diamond border pieces! so they'll be ready to put all together for the last week!
Here's the schedule again for the sew along:
- (10/4) Week #1: Cut and organize border pieces + Blocks 1 + 9
- (10/11) Week #2: Blocks 2 + 4 + 5 + border diamond blocks

It's a quick sew, but the construction is simple you can definitely get it done! If you post to social media, be sure to use the hashtag #fallgatheringsSAL!
