Fawn Fabric Blanket The Cozy Tot b

Fawn fabric blanket from the Cozy Tot

Mother Nature pulled an April Fool's joke for us here in upstate New York; we awoke Saturday morning to a trifecta of snow, sleet, and slush! At least the consolation was some warm sunshine Sunday morn', with all the animals coming out bright eyed and busy tailed to meet the day, not unlike this precious doe-eyed tot on her Fawn fabric blanket, courtesy of The Cozy Tot!


Palm Springs from Hawthorne Threads

Palm Springs Fabric Pillows

Panels make for quick pillows - or a great centerpiece for a quilt!

On the heels of Coyote and Mojave, we're pleased to present our annual desert themed collection. Nestled in the Coachella Valley area lies the oasis that is Palm Springs, a mecca for modern fashion and good vibes for over half a century. With its hardy critters, painterly vistas, Sonoran succulents and towering palms, our newest line celebrates Southern California style. Told in two color stories, each with double border and panel options, these sun-kissed prints will lend a laid back vibe to any project.

Palm Springs Fabric Dresses

Girls Ayda Dress and Women's Riding Peplum Top

We're working on our spring break wardrobe and Palm Springs is just perfect. My daughter requested another Criss Cross Tunic so I jumped at the chance to make one with the Iguana Desert and Palm prints. We also have some mother daughter dresses, and Ayda Dress for my daughter and a Riding Peplum for me, each in the bold Blooming Desert design. As for the quilts, these are our Faux Patchwork designs which we quilted and bound with Manchester Yarn Dye. If you'd rather piece your own, we recommend the Broken Herringbone, Radiance, and Pow Wow quilt patterns available in our shop!

Juxtaposey inspiration from Wild Boho

Betz White's debut collection for Riley Blake is "a juxtaposition of florals and other motifs drawn from textile influences from around the world." Inspired by the artistry and similarity of stitching and textures of handwork from different cultures, Betz's Juxtaposey takes us on a trip around the globe with her layered folxy prints and bold jewel tones. We have yardage and Fat Quarter Bundles.

Sewing inspiration from Lizzy

Lizzy House’s newest
collection is a departure
from the classic look that
we’ve come to know and
love in her fabric design.
Her fine art printmaking
has run a parallel line to
her commercial textile
work for the past 10 years,
and it is with this new range that they
intersect. With a continued
focus on shape and
color, Lizzy invites you embrace the place where her two loves for Printmaking meet.

We have quilting cottons and lawn, and canvas coming soon!

Scattered Needlepoint Areas from the Back

Often we encounter needlepoint where all the areas of color are small and are scattered. This Rogue Needlepoint canvas is almost a poster child for this. The only areas that are a continuous single color are the words. While most of the colors are used in many places, none of the areas are large. This […]

Los Angeles Lingerie Fabric + Trim Shopping Guide

On the last day of the Mimi G Sewing Conference, the entire group hit up LA’s Fashion District to fabric shop.

Pattern Review: Scroop Henrietta Maria Top

Hi Readers! I am undoubtedly a dresses girl, but sometimes I want to throw on some slim-fitting jeans.  The thing is, when I wear skinny jeans, I don’t want to pair them with a curve-hugging top, and instead want to opt for a longer looser fitting blouse that covers up my mid-section.  Yep, I don’t…
