Giraffes in a Row {Sold Out}



Thank you everybody.

That's all I can say!



Since my participation of Houston Quilt Market this past October 2017, which you can read about here, I have been wondering if the expense of taking the trip would pay off. I mean how can you really tell?



If there has since been an increase in sales... 

Was it due to exposure gained from being at Market? 
Was it due to being taken on by PA Distributors just prior to Market?
Or was it simply due to a viral Pinterest post?

Who can really know?



Andrea Schmidt sent me an email with the photo shown above attached and said, "Lorna, I snapped this picture at Gruber’s Quilts on Saturday at International Quilt Festival Chicago. I am glad I already had my pattern. I love your patterns. Thanks so much!"


Who can really know what makes a pattern popular? Is there a formula for success?

All I know is that I fell in love with Giraffes in a Row when I made both of my quilt versions. I could not resist them and took them on as my Sew Fresh Quilts logo. Those cute wee faces, eh?

Giraffes in a Row 39" x 39"

Giraffes in a Row 57" x 57"


Who really cares about the answer to all these questions? 

I am happy to be doing what I love....
Happy to be able to share that love with others when they enjoy making from my patterns....
And happy to just keep on quilting together and doing what we love!



Keep On Quilting On!

Let's Bee Social #224

Welcome to the Let's Bee Social!

These past few weeks have been very busy with shows and workshops. And the weather has been crazy! But during that bad weather I managed to put together the entire 20 blocks for my Christmas Sweaters quilt. Now I just have to arrange them into rows and transform this into my first quilt top made in my new home.



DID YOU KNOW?????

Sandra of Musing of a Menopausal Melon is soon hosting her 2nd Annual Quilt Along, It's for Plus Playtime, which is in the latest issue of Modern by the Yard, the Benartex ezine. The link to the pattern (which is FREE!) is on their blog, Sew In Love With Fabric, in the top spot on the sidebar.

The QAL will run from April 24 (sponsors post) to July 5. Actual fabric requirements post is May 1, but you can get them anytime in the ezine. It's looking like a great prize lineup and Stitch Stash Diva (and possibly a CA shop too) is going to curate kits for it.

Interested???? Check out Sandra's beautiful Plus Playtime post here.









Now... It's your turn for Show and Tell!!!

Let's Bee Social #223

Welcome to the Let's Bee Social!

That was the other fastest week of my life!

At last week's Let's Bee Social, I mentioned a trip to Wasaga Beach and then to Dunnville for trunk shows and a workshop. Yesterday I just returned from another show and workshop in Sarnia. What a wonderful way to spend a whirlwind tour in the early spring in Ontario!

Thankfully, my gracious and lovely host, Nora came to my rescue and sent me these photos from the workshop yesterday. Otherwise we may not have had a post for today!















If you ever get a chance to visit with the Sarnia Quilters' Guild.... DO IT!!! 

They are such a friendly and fun group of quilters!

Let's Bee Social #222

Welcome to the Let's Bee Social!

That was the fastest week of my life!
Hope you all enjoyed the long Easter weekend. I did!

Baby Chicks



This week I am busy with Trunks Shows and Workshops. Last night I had the pleasure of meeting the friendly members of the Slope to Shore Quilters' Guild in Wasaga Beach. And in spite of the weather turning somewhat miserable while the meeting was held, I made it home safe and sound.

Tonight I am heading to Dunneville to stay for a Trunk Show tonight and a Workshop in the morning with the Dunneville DOTS. Love that name!!!

So although I have been doing a wee bit of sewing working on my Christmas Sweaters, not many photos. But here's me chilling out with Janome in the new sewing room on Instagram...
