Bijoux by Bari J. Launch Party // Block Pattern & Giveaway
A collection from the imagined life of a traveling free spirit and her elegant caravan decorated with gorgeous textiles and the beautiful items she has acquired along the way. By Bari J. for Art Gallery Fabrics.
Today I am participating in a party to celebrate the beautiful new fabric collection Bijoux by Bari J. for Art Gallery fabrics. It is day 9 of this fantastic inspirational blog hop and I am going to share a tutorial for a quilt block using Bijoux that would make a beautiful quilt.

The Bijoux Block
Bari J. and I met at our local Modern Quilt Guild and I have really enjoyed all her work. Bari asked me if I would like to play with this new collection and come up with a quilt block, and of course I was ecstatic over the idea! With all the curves from the Retro Rubies QAL and my recent Hour by Hour block tutorial I am in total curvy mood! I decided I wanted to incorporate more curves into this block as well because I felt like it would flow well with the designs in the fabric. It also give you an opportunity to practice those curves even more!
So far I have only made these two blocks, but I really want to make an entire quilt for my daughter. I mocked up a little preview of what the quilt would look like, of course I would use more of the fabrics from the entire Bijoux collection.
