Patterns are a launch!

So you know the old axium, Ask and you shall receive? Well I asked.
And I received!!

I finally got the nerve up to email a few shops about carrying my patterns in PDF form and the answer was...YES!!

So now you can buy Cheers to You...



...MVQ...

...or Avalanche...

...instantly! How exciting is that?!

Where you ask?? Fat Quarter Shop is carrying them, as will 1 Choice 4 Quilting and Mel at Above All Fabric will be doing a kit up for Cheers to You! You can also find the patterns at Pattern Spot.

I can't tell you how incredibly psyched I am to see my patterns for sale in these amazing, I've-loved-since-I-found-them stores. It is so humbling and so exciting, and slightly terrifying, that I really can't express it in words.

Thank you to so many people who have encouraged me, and pushed me, and to everyone who reads this blog and has been so amazing to me over the years, and especially in the last one.
I never would have gotten to this point without your support. Especially big huge hugs to Jacqueline, my friend and pattern editor, tester and soundboard.
And another huge hug and thank you to Leigh at Spincushion for doing my cover images! You are the sweetest!

There will many more patterns coming soon! This has totally sparked me to finish up a few more that have been percolating and had to be put aside.
I hope you like my logo because you'll be seeing a lot more of it in the future I hope!!

Congrats!!!! Oh I want to do patterns too and always wondered how they get put into print. I always wonder too what people use when they create new patterns. A program or pencil and graph paper or both. You have inspired me now.

Good luck with the patterns. They could only say yes or no and you were lucky they said YES. Go for it.
