it's FINALLY here!!!!

and we are PUMPED!
okay, okay, the fabric is even better in person! I just happen to be writing you today from the great state of Utah. Lucky I came when I did---because the fabric has ARRIVED!

Even better, it is in STORES NOW!! You heard right, our "Rainy Days and Mondays" fabric line is available in stores right this very minute.
can we get a what-what?!

We keep doing "google" searches and find more and more people spreading the word about this fun fabric line! To all of you who have, THANK YOU! We are flattered and so excited about the good buzz that has come our way.

You wanted to hear a rad story, right? I knew it. So, I am up at the Riley Blake Designs headquarters this past Tuesday morning to see the line IN PERSON and pick up a few bolts, when I heard that a fabulous quilt shop in South Jordan, Utah named Material Girls, had received our line on Friday, and had SOLD OUT and needed MORE of our line! Mind you, it was TUESDAY MORNING when I found this out. Plus, they are closed Sunday, so that means only 2 full days of selling. How does that make us feel? AWESOME!

A lot of people are wondering where they can get some of this fabric, and we're directing them to the Riley Blake Designs website's "Where to Buy" tab. Go there to search for your area. And, what should you do if our line isn't available in your local quilt shop? Feel free to tell them you want it, and that they should order it. :)
Or, you can also click on this link to see a list of all the online retailers carrying it.

This website, Fat Quarter Shop, has a lot of great images of the actual fabric photographed (see below) and have even asked us to be guest bloggers on their blog! We'll let you know when they publish it. All these images of the actual fabric were taken from their online store. We love them. And feel so legit!

(great photos, Fat Quarter Shop!)

Anyway, here are some things we found via the world wide web that make us feel so glad inside:
Taffy Talk did a giveaway of our fabric on their blog yesterday and had 152 people enter! Click here to check it out.

My Heritage Fabrics blog said this about our fabric, "Riley Blake just shipped this collection and it is generating more Ohhhs and Ahhhs in the shop than anything that has arrived for a while."

And, we also saw this cool post by the folks at Piecelove blog, "After scouring the Internet for two days and looking at every quilt fabric company website I could find, I have now decided which upcoming fabric line I adore the most. This: It's called "Rainy Days and Mondays" by Melimba & Beccabury of Riley Blake Designs."

Soooo nice! We are SUPER jazzed. Here are our faces to prove it (yes, it was late on Tuesday night and we look just daaarling, but we don't care)!

Let us know if you happen upon any other news. I think it would be fun to create a Flickr group where people can post their pictures of projects they make with the fabric line. And, I think a GIVE AWAY with some free fabric should happen soon. Don't you?

So, from the snowy state of Utah, I'm signing off saying, "Oh my heck, thank YA soo stinkin' much!" (I can make fun, b/c I'm a Utah girl).

Holy what? I have some wicked talented friends. I have no idea how you did it...the are just inspirational. You have skills. And you are going to be a gazillionaire because I know you could doodle these things all day and not break a sweat. Can I work for you? I don't wanna be a dietitian anymore, I want to be your apprentice! Teach me!
