I’m thrilled to introduce my upcoming fabric collection for Riley Blake Designs, and a little bit of the background and inspiration behind this collection. Meet Notting Hill, arriving in shops February 2021. During my years as a college student I had the opportunity to live in London for a semester abroad.

It’s all finished just in the nick of time to enjoy while it’s still technically fall and I still have pumpkin decor in the house. *this post contains affiliate links I’m so pleased with the way it all turned out.

Women helping Women Support Their Families by Quilting https://www.diaryofaquilter.com/2020/11/women-helping-women-support-their-families-by-quilting.html https://www.diaryofaquilter.com/2020/11/women-helping-women-support-their-families-by-quilting.html#comments Tue, 03 Nov 2020 18:32:57 +0000 https://www.diaryofaquilter.com/?p=19370 Women helping Women Support Their Families by Quilting

I love finding and sharing stories of hope and inspiration – especially when they’re tied to quilting! In this difficult year of 2020, it’s comforting to be reminded of the goodness happening in the world as well as share ways to help anyone who has it harder than you do. I’m even more especially inspired by women who empower other women to succeed and provide a better life for themselves and their family.

One of my goals right now is use my ridiculous stash to make more quilts to give away. This simple checkerboard pink and white patchwork quilt is a super easy-stashbuster. It was also the perfect do-able project to get my creativity flowing again.
