Riley Blake stormed onto the scene earlier this year and became an instant hit. I got to meet owner Cindy Cloward, who showed me all their new offerings.
Many of their designers have roots in the scrapbooking and paper crafts industries. My Mind’s Eye, for instance, have designed most of Riley Blake’s catalog. Bloom and Grow (October release) is above — love those simple geometrics! They also have Wheels (Jan/Feb 2010), Andrea Victoria (Feb/March 2010), and Summer Song (March/April 2010), shown below.
Below, Boo to You and Colorful Christmas, also by My Mind’s Eye, are the holiday collections slated for a 2010 release.
And next, we have Nantucket by Jody Taylor (note the basket weave print), Felicity by Emily Taylor. I’m not sure about release dates on those two. Below those, it’s Rainy Days and Mondays by Melimba and Beccabury (Feb/March 2010).
Last but not least, here is Sublime by Doohickey Designs, which will be in stores this November. And see that fat quarter pack? That’s up for grabs here today. Just leave a comment telling which current or future Riley Blake collection sings to you most. (You can click on the images to see the bigger version.) I will draw a winner randomly next Wednesday, October 21, around 9am Central U.S. time. This giveaway is open worldwide. And stay tuned for lots more quilt market giveaways as coverage continues!
