I have something exciting to share with you today!
But before I get into it, I just want to thank all you who have given me support throughout my business endeavors. I greatly appreciate your kind & encouraging comments and emails. I am so very grateful to those of you who have expressed your interest and given me the push that I really needed.
Last year I posted about a baby quilt I had designed for my new niece, using the stretched star block. In recent months, there had been a considerable amount of interest for this pattern. So, I began the process of writing up the pattern, making a couple new sample quilts (that was the easy part!) and learning about what to do/where to go for printing. This has been quite the learning experience for me!
After a long search, and a little guidance from a fellow pattern writer, I was able to find a great printing company. Next, came creating a new logo. After some brainstorming with a friend of mine, we came up with a pretty good idea, at least at the time. When I got my logo, and added it to the pattern, it just didn't fit. I wasn't sure about it. Good thing I've got some pretty good quilty friends who could offer their opinion. Sorry to say, the first logo was a no-go. After a couple more brainstorming ideas, this time with my bro., he drew me up something amazing. I love how this new logo really fits with everything I wanted it to be. I am so much happier with the logo, and my quilty friends agree :)
I am so excited to introduce to you my first publicized pattern under my new design name:
I only had one thought for this pattern: Supernova. What I love most about this pattern is, that it works incredibly well with a great range of color. With the right placement of the blocks, the colors move as a gradient, which reminds me of how a Supernova looks, sending out tiny bits of star in a burst of spectacular color.
Now I know not everyone wants to make a baby quilt. It's always good to have an option, right!? Well, the another awesome thing about this pattern is, it not only has options for Baby, Toddler, Lap and Twin; but it also has options for a larger scale block in quilt sizes Lap, Twin and Queen/King!
Seriously, I would have included the smaller scale blocks all they way up to Queen/King, but while I was looking at it, and had the math all figured out, I wondered if anyone would really want to make a King size quilt with the smaller blocks, I mean, besides me :)
