Butterfly Kisses Pattern Company

I have so many great ideas that I used to make for my girls when they were little. I just never made them into patterns. Now I have patterns available. I started my pattern company with inspiration coming from my little niece Paige who passed away from a tragic accident. She is in my constant thoughts and I think of her parents and brothers often. I thought it would be a nice dedication to Paige to name my pattern company in memory of her. At Paige's funeral we let out live butterflies from small packages and watched them fly away.

Quilt Market 2009 Pittsburgh

Riley Blake Designs launched their first line at quilt market in Pittsburgh and we could not be more thrilled. It was a lot of work, but very successful. We had 2 booths filled with "Just Dreamy" by "My Mind's Eye". We had quilts, bags, pajamas, clothing, tablecloths, curtains, lamps and pillows. This line has been a huge seller and continues to be in demand. We have a second shipment arriving in about 2 weeks on the same boat with Ivy Trellis. Everyone is loving this line. Each piece works so well with together. I got to meet so many people whose work I admire and love so much. Amy Butler, Lila Tueller, Chelsea of Pink Fig Patterns, Sandy Clop of American Jane, so many more. The high light for me was meeting Mark Lapinski who was a hoot and a holler.
