Via the Fat Quarter Shop, I just learned about the new quilting fabric company Riley Blake Designs. It’s run by a Utah-based husband-and-wife team — their blog says they’ve been in the wholesale fabric business for 10 years and have just recently expanded into manufacturing their own lines. Riley Blake has a fresh, lovely website and some interesting collections. The term that came to mind was “mainstream modern” — the current and future collections are versatile and have wide appeal. There are two collections currently available: Just Dreamy by My Mind’s Eye (featured in the slideshow above), and Ivy Trellis by Gabriella Hunter Design, and more collections expected throughout the year.
I love Just Dreamy’s graphic flowers, donut ring dots, multicolor polka dots, and geometric coordinates. Lots of good understated prints, and the candy colors are so sweet.
