Project Design Team Wednesday ~ Easy Grilling Apron

04 Jun 2014

SONY DSC

Summer is here and just thought of turning on the oven in the summer makes me hot. So most of our cooking is done on the grill. We're big fans of grilled pizza at our house! Anyone else anti cooking during the summer? I have ruffley aprons, but they look a little out of place with the grill. Riley Blake's cotton duck home decor fabric is a little heavier and tougher so I knew it would work great for a grilling apron. I chose Aqua Found Label and Gray Found Damask from the Lost and Found line by ... ...read more

Project Design Team Wednesday ~ Lula Magnolia Panel Quilt Tutorial

28 May 2014


My name is Amy Smart and I blog about my quilting addictions at Diary of a Quilter. Today I'm sharing a quilt using Amanda Herring's newest collection Lula Magnolia. I am in love with vibrant colors in this collection coming to stores in June. This collection of fabrics includes a gorgeous panel with four big graphic prints. Printed panels are such a great tool for making a dramatic statement in quilts without having to do a lot of intricate piece-work.    The Lula Magnolia panels come in 3 different colorways, but all coordinate with each other. I used three ... ...read more

Project Design Team Wednesday ~ Art Smock Tutorial

21 May 2014

  Hi, sewing friends!  It's Becky from U Create again! I love contributing to the Riley Blake Blog!  I hope you will love this little project as much as my baby girl loves the end result.

My preschoolers LOVES to paint!  I am not talking about the dollar store water colors either.  She likes the acrylic paint "that mommy uses."

 We had so many new collections to show at Quilt Market.  Set to arrive next month, A Beautiful Thing and Fly Aweigh were showcased together. A Beautiful Thing by Zoe Pearn has soft pinks, oranges and navy colors and we had to add fabric butterflies to the display....it was a "beautiful thing" :)  Fly Aweigh is a great boys collection.    You would probably not think to include nautical and airplanes in the same fabric line...but it just works in Fly Aweigh.  Designed by Samantha Walker, the mini lobster prints have been one of the most popular designs. Floriography and ... ...read more

I love shorts! They're so easy and fun and are such a fun way to show off a great print. My kids are really into treasures these days and have been begging me for bigger pockets. The Sycamore Short was born from their desire to hide rocks, candy, and every trinket they can find into their pockets. These shorts sew together like a dream.
