This is the QuiltWoman.com booth, where I spent most of my weekend. So happy & honored that my Cube Purse was displayed on the back wall. Unfortunately, I didn’t snap the photo while the tv was on in our booth. It cycled through all 490-something pattern titles/covers, giving us virtual quilt show AT the show. The 150 new titles were on the table in the back in bins like the one pictured above. Quilt shop owners could stop by an pick what they liked. I also saw a pattern of mine/QuiltWoman.com over in the Northcott fabrics booth. It was the newer, Teddy Bear Circles pattern. When I designed the quilt using virtual fabric, by Ro Gregg, I wasn’t sure how Northcott would actually use the design. ((The Teddy Bear for All Seasons flannel will ship later this summer and is not yet available in stores.)) Well, check this out- They actually print the quilt designs on the LARGE folded sample, which the fabric reps take around to quilt shops. The fabric swatches are inside. The whole process is very neat and interesting in a symbiotic way. QuiltWoman.com distributes the pattern, which states on the cover “using fabric from {whomever}” and then the fabric company also promotes the pattern. This way quilt shops know what line to buy, if they love the pattern and know what pattern to buy if they love the fabric line. Its also pretty neat that they work with independent pattern designers- I mean, look at the diversity in design, just in those 4 patterns alone. Brilliant. Every market I learn a little bit more. Love learning about the entire process!!! There’s still time to enter the Fat Quarter Bundle Give Away. The drawing will be TOMORROW!!! So hurry, leave your comment on the bundle post and tell your...

Grey Quilting Thread

Grey Quilting Thread

on Apr 7, 2010 in blogging others, northcott fabrics, pattern, quilting | 2 comments

I have a quilt pattern called Quick 3D Sampler. Its super fast to cut and looks like the blocks are floating right off the quilt. It works because the colors are so bright, up against the black shadow border.But then there’s a problem- what color would I quilt it in? The first sample I ever made, I quilted it in invisible thread. For this new sample, I wanted to go with a nice mainstream quilting thread- I didn’t want glaring white lines through the black border. Blue is the main, dominate color in the top- but I didn’t want blue lines all through the yellow spaces… Ultimately, went with a smokey GREY color. Its subtle enough to blend into the yellows and dark enough to work on the black and blue. I’m telling you, grey is the new white! I love how the grey turned out. This particular quilt was made & quilted by Karen of Karen’s Quilting Service for ReannaLily Designs. Its a sample for my booth for the Wichita Quilt Show this summer. Turned out EXCELLENT. This new model is made with Mark Lipinski’s Home Elements for Northcott Fabrics and will also be the new pattern cover model as...

Sleepy Stars

Sleepy Stars

Now introducing the second title from ReannaLily Designs releasing with Northcott Fabrics. This quilt is called Sleepy Stars and is made from a 24” block. How fun is that? Only 4 blocks and you are done with this baby quilt. Of course, if you wanted to make the quilt top 4 total times, you’d have a great bed size quilt, at 96” x 96”. The quilt is designed to feature Mark Lipinski’s Good Morning Sunshine (in the boy colorway). Its a wonderful collection with blues and yellows and greens. My tester was able to work up the design in comparable fabrics, since Good Morning Sunshine won’t ship until May 2010. This title will be published and distributed by QuiltWoman.com, so look for the release in their online shop/catalog later this Spring...

Teddy Bear Circles :: NEW Quilt Pattern

Teddy Bear Circles :: NEW Quilt Pattern

on Mar 26, 2010 in business, Minneaplois Spring Market 2010, northcott fabrics, pattern, quilt | 0 comments

There’s two new patterns on the horizon! I thought I’d share one of them with you. The pattern is for a child size quilt and is designed to compliment A Teddy Bear for All Seasons by Ro Gregg; one of the new fabric lines by Northcott fabrics. The pattern is called Teddy Bear Circles and is based on a collection of 10″ squares (layer cake) or assorted quilter’s fat quarters (18″ x 22″). The cover sample is made using the fat quarters. The circles can be hand/machine or fusible appliqued onto this 15” block. My tester has made this pattern a couple times. The first time was using a Moda layer cake, since the Teddy Bear For All Seasons fabric isn’t quite available yet. Very scrappy and “mish mashy,” which is excellent! Those layer cakes sure have many prints in there, don’t they? My tester then made the quilt again 4 times and joined those 4 tops to make one huge bedsize quilt. I don’t have a finished picture of that one yet, but I cannot wait to see it. This pattern will be distributed by QuiltWoman.com and is set to release at spring market in Minneapolis. Stay tuned for more preview patterns! Edited to add- I think this pattern will look amazing in cotton solids. I’m going to have to put that on my to-do...
