Zion National Park Quilt

Hi there! I have another really great panel quilt to share with you today! Today's quilt features the all new National Park line from Riley Blake Designs.  I am so excited about this new line of poster panels that feature National Parks! My family LOVES visiting National Parks and we are lucky enough to have Zion National Park just 45 minutes away from our home and several others just hours away! 

Today I wanted to share the quilt I made using the Zion panel.  I really love how it turned out! I decided to keep it really simple and do two borders with cornerstone blocks! 

For the borders I used the coordinating fabrics from the line and did a small green inner border and then used this really great text print as the larger border.  I love this print! It has names of many National Parks and some great wildlife motifs! 

I did a 1 1/2" inner border and an 8 1/2" outer border - so the cornerstone blocks are 8 1/2" unfinished.  You an pick your favorite block and use those as your cornerstones! I decided on a simple star block. 

For the center of my stars I used the patches print and did different patches in each star.  This print is so great for fussy cutting! 

I really love how my quilt turned out and I will be gifting this quilt to my dad since he is a huge National Park fan and spends a lot of time hiking and canyoneering in Zion! I know he is going to love it! 

The panels will start shipping sometime this month and new designs will be released in the coming year! So be sure to follow Riley Blake Designs for the latest information! 


  1. Hi there! I cannot WAIT for these! We did a National parks of the West tour last year and I have such great memories of them so I will certainly be looking for these!

  2. This turned out so cute and having those beautiful red mountains in the background was perfect!
