 Awesome Autumn


Today is my day to introduce my new fall line Awesome Autumn. This will be one of four lines in a series.

There will be a line for each season. Spring will be next followed by Winter and Summer.



The panel comes in this cream background.

And also this dark brown version which happens to be my favorite.


There will be a  free pattern using this panel on the Riley Blake Designs site.


The free pattern features two projects, this runner


and this mat - both are a free pattern!

I have designed 4 patterns using this line of fabric.


This pattern will be offered as a kit from Riley Blake Designs.


I love their kit boxes. They are fun to set on display shelves



The corn runner from this pattern is offered as a Riley Blake Designs kit.




If you would like to see all of the prints in this line check out the storyboard.

Bumble and Bear

It is my day to show my new upcoming baby/kids line Bumble and Bear by Riley Blake Designs.


Bumble and Bear are the best of friends and are practically inseparable. 

Wherever there is Bear, there is Bumble.

The images in this line we first painted out on paper. Then the images were cut out and machine stitched to a background piece of paper. This gives the images a dimensional look.


The panel features preprinted bibs and burp cloths.

One can never have enough bibs and burp cloths. 

Using this preprinted panel you can make 4 bibs and 2 burp cloths in a snap. Easy Peasy.

If you need more bibs than what is on the panel, there are plenty of cute prints in the line to choose from. (use the preprinted bibs/burp cloth for a pattern)


You can see all of the prints in this line on this storyboard.

I have designed 4 patterns using this line of fabric.





The fabric and patterns will be shipping this coming November.
If you would like to hear more about this line you can watch my video here.

Stop back on Friday at 1:20 Central Time to see the introduction of my new fall line Awesome Autumn.
Happy Quilting!

Red White and Bang!

Today is my day to be featured on the Riley Blake Designs Virtual Market Facebook page.

A video featuring my Red White and Bang line of fabric will air Thursday, November 11 at 12:00. MST on the Riley Blake Designs Virtual Market Facebook page. 

Here is the link to the page group -you must join the group to be able to participate. 

And here is a link to the schedule.

This line is based on fond childhood memories of a neighborhood 4th of July picnic.

Every year our neighbors, the Wedebrands, had a 4th of July picnic. We always played croquet, ate watermelon, and ran through sprinklers at this celebration.  The prints in this line of fabric echo those memories.


Storyboard link.

The BOM sampler quilt using this line of fabric was not quite finished in time for the shooting of the video. It is now finished and ready for your viewing.


The name of the pattern is Summer Sampler.
Riley Blake Designs is offering this as a kit.


The kit comes in this adorable pickup truck box.



This little lunch box is a gift item featured with this line of fabric.
Use it to store your fabrics and supplies...or use it for a lunch box.

Who doesn't like the convenience of a wideback?
Available in 3 colorways.



In the 70's I had a skort made out of fabric very similar to this.
If you are younger than 55 you most likely do not know what a skort is.


A skort is a mix of a skirt and shorts - skort.

Speaking of making things.
Would you like to know how to make these fireworks flowers?
