Wanna Be a cowboy

Wanna be a Cowboy is a line for both boys and girls. This is the cutest western line. Designed by a local designer Samantha Walker. We had a lot of fun working together. This quilt showcases the girl colorway but there are 2 other colorways that will be available. This will be a hot seller at market in Houston in October where cowboys are all that and more. Can't wait to see the strike-offs. I'm thinking that a cute skirt with pink cowboy boots and hat is going to be a hit in Texas.

All Star

We chose All-Star from My Mind's Eye. We wanted to do an all boy line. This is what we came up with. All-Star is selling very well. The strike-offs for this line are so good that we had very few comments to make in the changes. This is going to make the cutest boys bedroom. I can't wait to see all the fun projects that we can do with this boy fabric. Look forward to seeing All-Star in your local quilt stores sometime in August.

Be Merry

Be Merry is a very cute, very fun Christmas line that is a big seller for Riley Blake Designs. We are so excited to get this in and pushing as quickly as we can to get it here asap. We have so many projects and quilts planned for this line. There are a lot of designers that we are working with that cannot wait to get their hands on this Be Merry. Ask for it in your local quilt stores. This quilt was designed using 10" x 10" squares and borders that showcase the cute snowmen, trees and snowflakes in this line of Riley Blake fabric.

Ivy Trellis

This new fabric line is called Ivy Trellis. It arrives in about 2 weeks. Gabriella Hunter is a local artist who is the designer. This is a beautiful line of periwinkle, orange, green, blue and yellow. Can't wait to see how it will look in skirts, bags and quilts. The strike-offs are so much prettier than the storyboards that we prepare which help to pre-sell the fabric. This fabric comes alive when you see it in person. This quilt that I designed represents the artists perspective of simplicity. It works well with the geometric designs and showcases the beauty of each piece of fabric.
