Riley Blake fabric lines assure that your project will coordinate. A note about precut 5" stackers. Each stack includes one of each print from that line. Because each line of fabric is unique some stacks may have more or less squares than ... more

At the time, the tutorials for that collection were already spoken for, but they assured me that they had another black and ... more
