Happy Almost Spring!
Thank you for stopping by today! I know it’s been a long time since I posted. I have been working these days on NEW quilt kits for my site, and for upcoming quilt shows where I will be a vendor. There are lots of new fabric collections available and it’s hard to choose what I want to offer now through summer, and also for the fall. I love florals and a variety of coordinates as shown in the photo. This “springy” collection is called “New Vintage Rose” by P&B Textiles. I am working on a quilt kit that I will have on my site in a couple of weeks.
What’s hard as a designer that sells quilt kits through magazines and on her website is determining what YOU – the customers – wants to purchase! Will you like the fabric AND the design I have chosen? I am inspired to design a quilt by viewing the fabric first, and then deciding what the quilt blocks will be. I am color driven! There are many quilt designers who design the quilt first in black/white or greyscale and then choose the fabric. I am the opposite! I believe that when you see a quilt, you notice the color first, then the fabrics, and how they are used in the design itself. I also love to show quilts in different colorways as a quilt can “change” to you depending on what color the quilt is. This is why I have been showing an actual quilt, and then a virtual image in a different colorway on my site. It’s fun to have choices!
