I guess this was not the best time to start a blog - right before Quilt Market (the biggest trade show for the quilting industry.) I have been swamped the last few weeks getting the new lines ready, correcting samples, getting stuff shipped (the show is in Pittsburgh), etc. The show is only twice a year, but it seems like we are constantly getting ready for it.
This week I also put the finishing touches on a new collection, Splendor. My mom (Sharon) and I found this great antique artwork from France. It was painted sometime in the late 1800s. I'm not sure what it was originally for - each painting is only one corner of a design - maybe they were for scarves or table cloths. Anyway - I added a little Floragraphix-style to them and a new line was born. You can see the whole collection at the In The Beginning website.
Well - back to packing!
