10 years ago...

on February 14th, 1997, we started the moonshyne collection. For those of you who may not know our story, the moonshyne collection was our pattern company. In 2004 we changed our name to blue meadow designs.

Over the past ten years we have;

written 6 quilting books
written 1 cd rom
have been published in 14 magazines
designed 3 fabric collections
visited 3 international quilt markets
started a blog
visited numberous quilts shops and guilds
taught many classes and retreats
published many patterns

not to mention we had four children amongst all of this other stuff!

I probably missed some major event but that's it in a nut shell. It has been a wild ride and over the past 3 years we have expanded the most!! Thanks for all of the support we have received over the last ten years... Here's to another 10.

Happy 10th Anniversary!!
