New Patterns In The Works!

Most designers plan their new patterns for release at either Spring Quilt Market or Fall Quilt Market. I’ve thought about releasing them as they are done, but logic takes over and I’m saved at the last minute. Can you picture me at market with “new” patterns that have already been released? Shops would walk by my booth and say “seen that, nothing new”. Can’t have that! So we all work in-between and release new things at market. That means twice a year you get new patterns and designers get the big “unveiling”.

Between markets we work away sewing, stitching and thinking up new things. Yesterday, I noticed my assistant Nireko had these little stacks of quilt blocks she is working on sitting right next to this pretty silver bowl of flowers. I had to share the moment with you, our first new pattern in the works! (:

  • Joanna - This looks beautiful – the fabrics and the vase of flowers look so nice together at first I thought it was staged like that!ReplyCancel

  • Darlene - Beautiful fabric – can’t wait to see the pattern.

    I have a couple of friends who design quilt patterns and I really do understand waiting until Markets to release new patterns; I wonder if it would hurt to release one new one during the months in between Markets.ReplyCancel
