The moment I've been waiting for! Dear friends, I am delighted to introduce to you my new fabric collection for Riley Blake Designs, called 'Sweet Prairie'!
This line was inspired by my love for all things floral and also includes two blenders - mini dots and bias ginghams - which work so well to break up all that flowery sweetness. For the colour palette I strived to achieve a happy, vibrant mix of colours featuring pink, mint, sunny yellow, earthy grey, and brick red. I am extremely pleased with it and pre-sales are in full swing already - I hope you like it too!
I've received my first set of strike offs (test batch run by the factory to fine tune the colours) and they are pretty spot on! I've already cut into them to make my April blocks for Fat Quarter Shop's 2017 Patchwork Quilt Along - the pinks and reds work so well with the pink, red and grey quilt I am making for this sew along.
'Sweet Prairie' will be available in shops in the US and Europe in August, and in Australia in September. I will share a list of stockists nearer the time - if you are a shop who will be stocking them please drop me a line to let me know!
