    It is a newer fabric company.

    Our sales rep just picked their line up... and I'm trying to gauge whether very many people know about this name.

    Their fabrics have a more modern look, a little bit like Michael Miller or Free Spirit.

    I have not heard of them. But I don't necessarily pay attention to the names. I get what I like.

    I have!! I LOVE Riley Blake. The fun bright designs are just my style. I just got a set of 8 fat quarters of summer song yesterday. I like the christmas line a lot but I don't make christmas items much so I passed on it.

    Just checked out their website. Beautiful fresh and cheery fabrics and a wonderful websites. Tons of free patterns and great tutorials and lessons in the 'Cutting Class' section. I'm impressed.

    I didn't realize that. I love MME-no wonder I love Riley Blake too (I haven't bought scrapbook paper in a long time so I didn't realize since I hadn't seen the newer lines). I also love that Cosmo Cricket and Basic Gray are being made into fabric now.

    Please don't laugh at me but... is Riley Blake a "he" or a "she"? Or a "them"?

    You can read about them here:

    Don't worry, I also thought Riley Blake was the designer.
    The name is a bit misleading. JMHO.

    We just recently received a new catalog showcasing their new lines. Mostly all of the prints were very small and nice looking. Great color combinations too!!! This afternoon a customer walked in the door w/ a piece and it's a very nice quality fabric. Held it up to the light and a nice tight weave. Very comparable to Maywood and Moda in my opinion.

    I like Michael Miller, so if it is similar it should perform OK.

    We have a fantastic store here - Scrapbooks Etc - which has branched out to fabric this past year. They carry Riley Blake fabrics, patterns, as well as Michael Miller, etc. I know it sounds strange for a scrapbook store, but it is really quite appropriate. They own a paper mill & have designers who have branched out to fabric. Contemporary and colorful.
