Riley Blake Designs Classic Caskata Project Tour

I love black, red, and white/creme fabric so Riley Blake Designs beautiful new line of fabric, "Classic Caskata" is my kind of thing. It is so elegant and would look lovely in any sewing project from quilts to apparel, or home decor. It's 100 percent cotton and is an officially licensed product. 

The gold fabrics are a perfect combo to the red, white, and black designs. I think you'll love them as much as I do!

"Caskata" Placemats, 14" x 20"

"Caskata" Napkin, 18" x 18"
Yes, I watched videos on YouTube to fold this...not a pro, but it was an easy one.

My grandmother gave me her gold flatware years ago and I've used it once. I need to get it out more often because it is kind of fun!

Riley Blake Designs "Classic Caskata" comes in gorgeous designs of black, red, and gold. The light reflects off the metallic gold...I love that!

The "Classic Caskata" Birds in any of the colors are totally stunning and detailed. Even the leaves are beautiful!

No matter how amazing a fabric line is, I always think that one of them is my favorite. In this case it would be the Wicker Black. I love it in the scalloped applique in the center of the placemat and as the binding!

The Paisley fabric has so many possibilities. A dress, apron, pillow, or even a tie would look pretty in this fabric.

The "Caskata" placemats even had me dragging out my Princess House Crystal. In the "olden days" I used it a lot, but now it's just a fond memory that I can't bring myself to get rid of. I think it looks awesome sitting on the placemat!

You can find the "Caskata" placemat and napkin pattern HERE.

Applique is so easy with Heat n Bond Lite EZ Print Sheets. Seriously, they are incredible. You can run the sheets through your inkjet tracing! Plus, the backing peels off without having to score it with a pin. I love that!

Thank you for stopping by!


  1. Those placemats are beautiful! The Caskata line is very elegant. The basketweave around the center and for the binding of the placemats is a perfect choice! Great work, Carol! Now, how the heck did you fold that napkin?! I am equally impressed with it. :)

  2. That is a beautiful and elegant fabric line. The placemats are gorgeous done up in it.

  3. Your treasures look great on those elegant placemats! Thanks for the pattern!

  4. That IS a pretty line and you've used it so elegantly. In your nine-patch of fabrics, I really love that middle red. That would go with so many other styles of fabric beautifully. I'm going to have to look for it for my hero quilts.

  5. You’ve created a beautiful, elegant table setting with your mats and Grandmother’s gold flatware.

  6. Elegant is exactly what this new fabric line reflects. I decided when I moved that I would only bring a few dish pieces and I promised I would use them. So...each month or so I swap out the dishes and use those “precious saved” pieces no one else cares about. They make me happy! Love your placemats and napkins. Princess House and Gold utensils...Priceless!
