Between the Pages

As a once upon a time librarian and avid reader, creating a book-inspired collection has been a dream of mine. This fabric collection is inspired by epic journeys, second chances, slow burns, and enemies-to-lovers who find themselves at the inn with only one bed. Craft yourself something cozy to keep you warm through every epic read.

Collection ships to stores November 2024.

Moonchild Fabric Logo

Since I was young, I’ve had a fascination of sorts with the night sky, the bright moon and swirling stars have always called to me. Sometime in 2021 I learned my astrological sign of Cancer also gets the name Moonchild. After reading more about it, some of my fascination made sense.

The Moonchild collection is an exploration of what we might encounter if we take a break from the every day and simply look up. In colors pulled straight from the sky, with sunset pinks and purples, midnight blues, and sunrise yellows.

Collection ships to stores September 2023.

South Hill

South Hill fabric - logo - Collection by Fran Gulick for Riley Blake Designs

After a lifetime of service in the military my husband retired and we moved to his childhood neighborhood - South Hill in Spokane, WA. 

South Hill is a collection of memories from the first year spent in our 'forever' home - from the squirrels making their home in our backyard to the toadstools growing in the fairy ring, from the rose buses and freesias in our garden, to our son's love for the moon and night sky. These are the things that stand out when I think back to that first year as we, finally, put down roots.

Collection ships to stores December 2022.

Daybreak Fabric - Logo

Childhood springtime meant mornings spent in the family’s front garden alongside my grandparents. Buzzing bees, blooming flowers, and my grandmother’s beloved lemon tree.

Daybreak is the gathering of memories, the distinct smell of fresh cut grass and springtime rain, cheery blooms, and the buzzing of honeybees, all infused with a fresh and feel-good color palette.

This is my first fabric collection with Riley Blake Designs and it ships to stores February 2022.
