Cabin fever!

We’ve shown you a few customer variations of our One Big Cabin quilt pattern before, today I want to share a few more! When we sold the pattern to the owner of Merry’s Stitchins in Jesup, Iowa (on a visit to the shop, we showed her samples of our quilts and provided patterns for her inventory) she immediately said she wanted to make a shop sample of One Big Cabin without the applique.  She even started choosing the fabrics for it while we looked around her wonderful store… Her’s was the Dr. Seuss version I showed you last week.

Our friend, Wendy, went to a retreat last month at Merry’s Stitchins, saw Merry’s fabulous shop sample and decided to make her own non-applique version for the newborn daughter of one of her coworkers.  This is Wendy’s quilt top:

The backing for this quilt was the same floral print on the front, only the back was flannel – super cuddly!  Such bright, happy colors for a new baby girl!

Prairie Point Quilts, in Shawnee, Kansas carries our patterns, too, and recently sent us this photo of their shop sample of One Big Cabin:

It looks like they used mostly batiks, and I love the soft, earthy look they lend to this quilt…

Nothing gives us fuel to keep creating, quilting, and marketing our work like seeing someone else’s vision for our patterns!!!! NOTHING!  So, keep ’em coming, if you make a quilt from one of our patterns, please email us a photo, send us a link to it online, or upload it to our Flickr group – we look forward to seeing it!

Happy Quilting, 

Doris & Trina

Dr. Seuss One Big Cabin

One of shops to start carrying our patterns in 2013 is Merry’s Stitchins in Jesup, Iowa. She has bright, open shop and a wonderful retreat area on her property.  She also has an adorable version of our One Big Cabin quilt made up without applique, utilizing the newest Dr. Seuss fabric line from Robert Kaufman.

One Big Cabin uses half of a jelly roll, and a just a small amount of yardage.  What a cute idea for a baby boy… this would be a quick, cheery gift to whip up for that next baby shower!

Who says owls can’t be PINK?

I used the owl applique from our One Big Cabin pattern to make a pillow for my niece’s birthday last weekend… I’d been dying to try this pattern out in non-traditional (that is, non-earthy) colorways:

Isn’t he adorable?  Now Trina and I want to make the entire quilt in these colors!

 

We started a flickr group for people to share pics of the projects they make using our patterns–we’d love to have you join the group, over here!

If you’d like to see more pillow pics, including some with the cute little recipient of this pillow, check out my blog.

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE who has bought one of our patterns, cheered us on, or supported us on this journey!  We are so grateful for each and every one of you,
