I'm a Riley Blake Designs Influencer!!

May 7, 2019

Hello and welcome to my blog! If you're new here, I'm Amista Baker, a quilting and bag making enthusiast from Ohio, and I'm a brand new Riley Blake Designs Influencer!

Keep reading to find out more about me and see some of my makes!

About Me

First, because I get asked this a lot, my name is pronounced uh-missed-uh 😊. I'm a wife and stay-at-home mom running my own small online business called Hilltop Custom Designs, where I design PDF sewing patterns and sell handmade goods.

I am currently also an Aurifil Artisan and have partnered with Olfa, multiple fabric designers, and done years of bag and embroidery pattern testing for Aneela Hoey, PLUS multiple blogger and social media collaborations. I love working with brands and sharing my passion for fabric 💕

What I Make

I primarily make quilts and zipper pouches, but I also occasionally make key fobs, drawstring bags, crossbody bags and other purses, totes, pincushions and more! 

Here are a few of my makes, you can see a lot more by finding me on Instagram @amistabaker
