Project Design Team~Car Seat Swaddling Blanket

06 Jun 2013

    Hello, my Riley Blake friends. I am so happy to be here from U Create again sharing my latest creation with you. This month I am sharing my Car Seat Swaddling Blanket Tutorial.
Becky Photo 4x6 bio

Being the mother of 3 kids (all of which were colicky babies), I know how much those babies like to be swaddled and cozy.  The car seat was my kids’ enemy.  They would squirm and inevitably kick their warm cocoon of blankets off.  So, I created the Car Seat Swaddling Blanket for them (and my sanity).  I no longer have babies, but I have plenty of babies ... ...read more

Project Design Team Wednesday~Q's Doll Quilt Tutorial

29 May 2013

 I'm so excited to share this post mainly since I have wanted to make a quilt of sorts for a long time. I finally had the excuse to make one with RILEY BLAKE FABRICS and for even more fun, check out the Riley Blake Fabric Fest in Las Vegas, NV in September where we will be teaching a class. Anyhow, Riley Blake has THE CUTEST selection of fabrics so it was hard to pick. It's a good thing I picked the quilt that requires many colors and patterns because I got to use most of my very favorites ... ...read more

Spring Quilt Market in Portland 2013

23 May 2013


Warning, this is a long blog post, but we have so much to share....like doughnuts. We ate a few of these interesting sweets at the famous doughnut joint in Portland. The actual doughnut tasted good (but not that much different than any other doughnut), but the different varieties they offer is what makes it a VooDoo Doughnut. How about 2 strips of bacon with your doughnut? Enjoy more photos of Quilt Market, if you have any specific questions about a collection, we welcome your comments.  Thanks for all of the comments about our latest video. So many people came ... ...read more
