collection by Mama's Cottons is our nod to 1930's and 1940's feedsack
prints. Our Mama's Cottons vintage reproduction collections have always
been very popular and I feel are quite necessary to the world of
quilting, so Nana's Pantry is the latest installment of vintage reproductions for you to enjoy!
As I started to design Spring Terrace
I wanted to do something reminiscent to Whirlwind Romance, a collection
I did a few years back. But I wanted to make this group new and fresh
and have a feel of its own. I knew I wanted to incorporate scrolls, for
two reasons. One, Whirlwind Romance had a scroll print and it was very
popular. And two, because if there’s one thing I know about Connecting
Threads customers by now is that they LOVE scroll designs. Scroll
designs are delightful because they naturally lend to a non-directional
composition as well as having a sense of whimsy, so they are very useful
as well as pleasing to the eye. In Spring Terrace you get not only one, but two to play with…the focal “Flourish” and coordinates “Tendrils”.
You've seen the back of my pillow, here's the front.
If you don't already know, next year will be Connecting Threads'
20th anniversary. We're pretty excited about that! To celebrate this
milestone, we wanted to do something a little special. We wanted to make
sure that whatever we did, we could share it with all of you, too! We
were looking for something that was both aesthetically pleasing while
still remaining useful. With everyone's lives getting busier and busier,
we figured a calendar would be just the ticket.
I don't think it's any big secret that the folks here at Connecting
Threads LOVE Christmastime. Case in point: there's a giant snowman in
our Director's office. This year, we decided to spice up the fun factor
around the office and get our customers and friends involved in the
joyous celebrations that we partake in as a group. Starting tomorrow, we
will be counting down the weeks until Christmas with a new, free
pattern that you can download each week. What's even better is that each
of the patterns are exclusive to Connecting Threads, and written by
members of our team. The patterns we will be offering are absolutely
awesome. Whether you're looking for gift ideas for your guild friends,
home decorating items, or fun stocking stuffers, you'll get a little
something for all of your holiday needs!
