Studio Updates

We are knee deep in that wonderful time of the year known as "pre-Market"…. need I say anything else! My advance yardage is finally here, my patterns are all about half done, my printer sees me pretty much every day and there are swatches and half used bolts of fabric all over the studio, the offices and even the living room. In fact since I was sick last week, my design computer has taken up house on our living room coffee table and my butt is seldom seen leaving the couch…. I could command armies from this post… wait a minute, I am commanding armies from this post!

In the midst of the chaos that we all expect this time of the year, we have a few tidbits to share with you….

Our soon to be released Fig & Plum collection was featured in Country Living magazine this month! Our Jelly Roll & Jelly Stars pattern are a part of the fun Quilters Page. Thank you Country Living.


We have a special little kit coming up…. our Cell Phone Cuties pattern [one of our top sellers at the moment] is being featured in the Holiday Gift Guide in the next issue of American Patchwork & Quilting. The kit for sale contains enough fabric & all accessories to make 2 cell phone covers. After all your friends might need a little hand made gift but you need one for yourself too, don't you?


We are happy to be the featured US designer in this month's issue of the Australian Homespun Magazine. A wonderful publication that we are so glad to finally be a part of!  Thank you Homespun readers and thank you Catherine for waiting for us to have a break in our schedule to submit something for your wonderful French themed issue… it must have been meant to be because after all what other issue could possible be a better fit for us than the French one?


This little "Fleur De Lys" wall hanging is available only in the 9-9 issue of Homespun magazine so ask your LQS for a copy while supplies last.

talk to you soon.
