Moving Day
We have loaded up, and we are moving out!
One of the MANY projects that we have been working on behind the scenes is a new blog. So thanks to our hard working elf ('s Karen) we now have the new site up and running. The new blog will give us more options, and you will find some of our past projects listed up on the new pages. So, please make the trip over to the new site, book mark it, and come and visit us often. You will find all of our new postings at
Hope to see you there!

Is it spring yet?? Around here there is still several feet of soft, fluffy snow...which my husband, my son, and their snowmobiles love. But we are already looking ahead to spring.
We got a sneak peek (actually we were proof reading) our latest magazine project. We legally can not show you the project, however, in my studio was this little pillow that Cori made up to reflect the quilt. We have always called our project 'Twitter' but since I am sure that is a copywrited name, the magazine has given it a new name. So this is just a tease, but you can see the real project, with the new name in American Patchwork & Quilting on newsstands March 2...but those of you who have subscriptions will get to see it 2 weeks earlier. There will be a limited number of kits available for the baby quilt, so don't wait too long in placing your order!
We also worked on editing another project that will be featured in a calendar. (yippee, we're calendar girls, and we can keep our cloths on!) One of our quilts will be featured in American Patchwork & Quilting's 2011 calendar. I can't wait to see it, but I hope 2011 won't come too quickly.
see you soon.

Well, it looks like Cori beat me to posting today! We are both busy on our computers, working in different area's, and trying to keep our paperwork from taking over our design life. I will be working in the Etsy shop, listing new products, as well as putting up some of our projects for sale. We debate ALL THE TIME about what to do with our enormous collection. Well, some of our fun sample projects need to find a new place to call they will start being listed in Etsy.

Cori is busy with the 1 & 1 shop, listing all of our blueprints and elements. This is a new area for us, and we LOVE IT! The possibilitys of creating in this new format are endless. I posted a picture of one pillow that Cori whipped up over the summer. It uses an element, and a very simple pillow layout (yes Cori...I will get you those instructions...)

And on my final note, according to the informal poll results, (and from people stopping us on the streets) we will keep the name '37 kisses' as the name for the quilt we posted last week. Thanks for the amazing suggestions. (yes Marcy, I always want to know what you think) And Sheila - I reserve the right to use the name 'Hot Lips' in the future.

see you soon.
It is time to share what we have been up to.
I hope you all have time to go to the shop today. Why? Because there is a whole bunch of new stuff!! There are some new patterns, blueprints and elements. What are blueprints and elements you ask? Oh, I can't wait to tell you.

Let's start with the blueprints. The blueprints are a simple pattern with basic instructions. The blueprints are only e-mailable!! No shipping. You pick a layout and then pick the elements of your choice to "embelish" your project.

How about the elements? The elements are shapes that you can applique onto the quilt or pillow you choose. This is a great way to customize your project. We even have alphabet sets, so you can add a name. The elements will be mailed to you, as they are all full size shapes to make it easy for you to use.

We will be re-leasing new blueprints and elements monthly! Not to mention the new patterns too.

The other new patterns are Country Lane & Astoria for only $9.99!

So come to and take a look at the new releases!
