2017 seemed to go as quick as a newly wound bobbin. One moment we are celebrating the New Year, blink and it was summer, then here comes Thanksgiving. (I am not fully convinced there was an October last year).
That said, with the holidays behind us, and winter taking its bite we want to first thank you for all of your support over the past 2 years that we have owned Story Quilts. This has been an adventure as we have gotten to know many shops and quilters from the US, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and Asia.
But this is only the beginning.
This past Fall we were able to introduce several new designers and their patterns to the quilting world. Holly Nelson, from here in the Texas Hill Country, has brought to us the ever so cute Woodland Critters pattern, and we got to meet Mr. Blue Bird of the Bluebird Travel Agency.
Going into 2018 expect to see some more of Holly's designs from Story Quilts.
We also introduced Ms. Barb Sherrill from Oregon. Barb's patterns provide beautiful contemporary designs that are both elegant and sophisticated. These quilts make a great focal point in a room or office, as they are artistic and calming. If you haven't tried your hand at modern quilt patterns be sure and take a look at The Journey, On Terra Firma, and Moonlit Reflections.
Our next blog post will include some other new designers from this past fall.
Until then, thread lightly and keep your scissors sharp,
