Today I’m excited to give you a peek at my newest fabric line with Riley Blake Designs, Santa Claus Lane.
Santa Claus Lane fabric is due to be released mid-2020 and can be found in local quilt shops and anywhere high-quality quilting cotton are sold online.
The inspiration for this line is my love of vintage Christmas ephemera. I absolutely love Christmas decorations from the 40’s and 50’s. I love the bright reds & greens and the touches of aquas and pinks that were popular at the time.
There are 21 prints in the line in 3 color ways.
The line also features 2 panels. One to create Christmas stockings and one for pillow and quilt projects.
The stocking panel features 4 different stocking front designs. You still need fabric for the back of the stocking and the linning. I desinted it that way to give you the most opttion and variety while creating your stockings.
The pillow panel features one large 18″ x 18″ panel designed to fit in a standard 18″ pillow form.
The smaller squares can be used for the center of quilt blocks or for smaller pillows and other Christmas Decor.
The Quilt Patterns
We are featuring 3 main quilt patterns to compliment the Santa Claus Lane line.
All patterns are available in print form wholesale to quilt shops. You can also buy them directly from me as a consumer. Just visit the shop for more information.
The first is our Let’s Stay Home Pattern shown here in Christmas fabric.
This version of the quilt features a row of Ohio Star blocks in the center of the quilt instead of the word panel from the original pattern.
The second quilt is our Santa’s Hat Shop Quilt.
It is made up of pieced Santa Hat Quilt blocks. The Santa hat blocks can be foundation paper pieced OR traditionally pieced. It’s up to you what you’d like to do.
The third pattern is the Letter Board Quilt Pattern.
This quilt pattern is unique because you can spell anything you’d like on the front of the quilt. The pattern features spots for 6 rows of 6 letters each and applique patterns for the entire English alphabet.
It can also be made from 10″ pre-cut stacks of fabric.
Here are a few photos of some finished projects using Santa Claus Lane fabric.
