A tribute to a great man and father

21 Jun 2015

  Happy Father's Day Today we celebrate Dads.   We especially wanted to pay tribute to a great man and father that recently passed away.   Vic Dadika was a dear friend to many of us at Riley Blake Designs.

  Vic was in the fabric industry for over 40 years and touched our lives in many ways with his goodness. He was a wealth of knowledge and was always willing to help others-he was known for his Vic days around the country.  He also was a sports enthusiast and especially loved to talk about the latest game, which many times included talking ... ...read more

TBT Modern: Pinwheels

11 Jun 2015


In this week's Traditional Block Thursday tutorial, Bonnie shows us how to put together this fun little Pinwheel block. The Pinwheel Block makes us think of, well, pinwheels! Full of movement and reminiscent of old-fashioned summer fun, pinwheels are typically bright and colorful. Because I like to sew "ironically", I opted to make these pinwheels in mellow greens and browns - the exact opposite of the bright pop of color you would expect to see in a pinwheel block. I love how it turned out! Diagonal lines create a sense of energy and motion. The natural, earthy hues create a ... ...read more
