New Riley Blake fabric

Pardon me, I just need to swoon over this for a moment.

(The two on the sides are Go Fly a Kite, and the center one is Saddle Up – both released by Riley Blake Designs.)

Rarely do I feel the need to cut into a shipment of fabric before it’s even washed, but as soon as I cracked open the package, I knew I had to make something with this stuff right away. Rarely do I feel the need to wax rhapsodic about fabric on my blog. Okay, never mind. I feel the need often but rarely do I actually commit to pressing PUBLISH. See how special these prints are?

I never buy Western print fabric, because well, that’s just not my aesthetic. However, I did live in cowboy country for long enough that when I spotted this Saddle Up print by Samantha Walker, I HAD. TO. BUY. IT. Western motifs, but in modern colors, with dare I say it…a bit of a Japanese/modern style sensibility. Oh yes.

Okay, swoon over.
(If you’re similarly smitten, I found my fabric through Sew For A Song.)
