Designing Women

I showed you sneak peeks of some raw-edge applique I was working on back around Labor Day (YES, that long ago…) and never showed you any more. Not really fair, now, is it? This was one of them: Which is really this guy:But there’s more: After a few delays, lots of road blocks, not enough time away from our real jobs, yada, yada… I am happy to announce the first pattern release of Row House Creations, LLP! and show you the rest of the work: What started out as a dream between two friends on a long car trip nearly two years ago, eventually transformed into these sketches at my kitchen table… and, this week the reality of a printed pattern! The tagline of our company is “Built Upon Classic Foundations”; our designs all start with a traditional quilt block (this time, a half log cabin block) interpreted with a modern quilting aesthetic… My partner, Trina, has 12 years of long arm quilting experience; Quilting guidelines for all of our cover quilts will be provided as an added bonus! No more mind block when it comes to deciding how you should quilt your quilt! Together we have 9 years of quilt shop management and service experience, and 22+ years of sewing and quilting experience! Knowing what quilters want, and anticipating solutions to problems are strengths that come from our experience! Our patterns are written with those qualities in mind.

One Big Cabin is made using a very simple raw-edge applique technique that anyone can do! One jelly roll, or Bali Pop, as we used, will yield enough strips to make two quilts from this pattern. On our website, fat quarters cutting instructions will be provided, and of course, a scrappy “One Big Cabin” would be adorable as well!
For more information on these cute critters and this sweet baby quilt pattern, check out our website and our SHOP!

  1. Congratulations Doris! How fabulous to have your first pattern released! Great first pattern too – it’s so charming and adorable. I really love the expressions on the critters. I wish you and Trina nothing but the best future for your patterns, full of wild and crazy success! Well done 😉

  2. So excited for the both of you! I love this one so much and cannot wait to see what the 2 of you come up with next. I am always so awed by your talent as well as that of Trina’s.

Let me know what you have to say on the subject....
