Riley Blake Designs - Nautical

My goal for this year has been to work on my quilting skills and I love that I can use those skills in my kids clothing! I've found that I love Foundation Paper Piecing and have been excited to do more with it. Riley Blake Designs just came out with their Nautical line and I knew an FPP boat would be the perfect block to work on.

I chose to make the Sorrento by Little Lizard King since it really is the perfect summer dress. The bodice is perfect for showcasing panels, or in this case, a quilt block.
After looking at different patterns I chose to go with the Sailboat Foundation Paper Piecing Pattern by Joe, June, and Mae. It's an adorable pattern and since I planned to only use the 3 colors (red, white, and blue) I felt it would showcase the colors the best.

This line is so much fun and with all the nautical you could want! I chose to make a patchwork skirt so each print could be showcased in this dress, although the Octo's and Boats are my favorite prints!

To make the skirt I cut 72 - 5.5" squares, with 18 squares in each row. It definitely add's more time to making the dress, but is such a great way to practice matching up your points and the patchwork is such a fun design to make.

Do you like Foundation Paper Piecing? What are some of your favorite FPP designers?
