fabrics designed by Tara Reed

I love designing fabric! Creating repeat prints is something I really enjoy and something I turn to when I need to escape. It takes such focus to get the color balance, the scale, the concepts just right! (Some of my friends who dread doing repeat prints think I’m crazy but to me it’s almost meditative.)”

Tara began working with Riley Blake Designs in the summer of 2019. Click here to explore the fabric collections featuring my art.

quilt block tutorials by Tara Reed

Quilts and the blocks that create them have an amazingly rich history. What started as necessity to keep a bed warm, block a draft from a wall or window and a way to use fabric from clothing that might not fit or be a bit worn out has become an art and craft in modern day.
