Coming soon to a quilt shop

As I looked at my calendar today, I realized how much time has passed since the beginning of the year. And during that time, some of you (Hi Marlene!) were wondering if we found the edge of the earth, and fell off. Well, the truth is quite the opposite, and today, I can begin to start telling you about it.
Since the start of this year, Cori and I have freed ourselves from some responsibilities, and took on others. Our passion is design, and we have taken the steps to get back to that. We have been working with several different fabric companies, and you will be seeing a lot of new quilts, made with some of the best available fabrics. We pieced, and produced 10 quilts in January alone, and this snap-shot is the first of many that you will be seeing.
Robert Kaufman sent us samples from a beautiful new flannel collection, called Cozy Cotton, and asked us if we had any idea's. Oh, did we ever! This is the 'Cutie Pie' pattern that Kaufman loved, and has decided to kit. The flannel, and kits are now available in the US, and we will be bringing them into our shop in the next few weeks. We have also learnt, that we will be the only supplier of the Cutie Pie kits in if anyone is interested, please drop us a note.
Cori also designed a special bed quilt for her daughter out of the same fabric line, and as soon as it is finished, we will post it.
There are MANY more fabric collections that have been pouring into our studios from Moda, Robert Kaufman, and Freespirit, and we will let you in on all the details as soon as we can.
You will also be seeing a lot more of us in magazines. We will have 4 quilts published before the end of the year, and I can't wait for you to see the first one. It's an adorable baby quilt using the Mingle line from Robert Kaufman, and that's the only clue you get right now.
So keep checking back, because we have lots to share with you.
see you soon.

I couldn't wait to see the "Mingle" line from Robert Kaufman so I went and looked it up. What great fabrics for a baby quilt!!! I love the pink, moss and brown together. I'm anxious to see the patterns you've come up with for that fabric. Y'all come up with such cute designs. By the way, I finished the top of the mystery quilt - that was so much fun. Thanks again!!
