HMQS Fabric Challenge

Riley Blake Designs is the proud sponsor of the 2010 Fabric Challenge and Auction for HMQS (Home Machine Quilting Show).

What's New

24 Nov 2009

What a busy day! We received 4 sets of strike-offs, plus a few friends brought their Sublime projects by to display......It was like Christmas morning for Jina and I. Our strike-offs are almost perfect! I can't wait to share....and since my husband bought me a new camera and my son finally showed me how to upload photos quickly... Why wait? First, I wanted to show off the necklaces I had made for all the gals that went to quilt market.  This small fabric swatch is from our"Sublime" line.

Finally, pictures of my cute slippers made out of our "Sublime" fabric. Our last line of the year, "Sublime" will be shipped from California this week.  The pattern "Pigs in a blanket" by quilted fish is available now at our warehouse. This is the teepee I took to quilt market, but with our limited space, it never got set up.  The pattern is from our "Eye Candy" quilt book.  I surprised my neice and gave it to her last month for her birthday. ...read more

Check out our Cute little cowgirl.  Made out of our "Wanna be a cowboy" fabric, who says you can only wear your costume on Halloween.  This is Kim and Matt's sweet little girl.  Matt is Mr. everything at our warehouse.

One of my favorite animated movies is "Finding Nemo"  and in that movie there is great line by the fish, Dora.  "Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming"  is what Dora says to Marlin, (Nemo's Dad) when he is getting discouraged about the distance he has to travel to find his son Nemo......yes, I have said that line a lot the last few weeks.....Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming.  Swimming through Fabric.  We have so many great, fun, unique things to show at ...

We hope you all enjoyed your labor day.....and the last bites of summer. I love summer food and am already mourning the end of it, not to mention our long warm summer days. Living in Alpine we are spoiled with fresh produce from the local farmers.  In the past few weeks we have indulged the most succulent peaches I think we have ever had.....they are drip down your chin good.  Sweet corn is always a favorite.  Now the tomatoes and apples are starting to be harvested and my pantry is overflowing with fresh produce.  I will share a ...
