My friend in Offsides apron!

April is one of my dearest friends wearing Offsides apron (P167). It is one of my favorite apron designs though a little disappointed that it wasn't a bigger seller. I think it is so funky. I LOVE the fabrics she chose and it looks adorable on her. Her sewing skills show off here -- looks pretty much perfect. She changed the pocket slightly; I think a better option than my original. I just love how unique this pattern turned out so I am glad April made it.

Isn't she adorable?

Checker Dist. Newsletter Headlines Vanilla House's New Patterns

Thankful that Checker is showing off my new patterns, I should post them all myself too! Sew all five in order:

 Tidbit. Do you know there was a six pattern (called Three Birds), written, quilted and looked great. But the background fabric made the photography look horrible. I will re-make it and it will come out later.

New Releases for Vanilla House designs - yeah!

I get so excited when it is New Pattern Release Time. All my samples, information forms, and image transfers have been sent to distributors. Makes me so excited/nervous when I put things out, I make a million mistakes getting the information sent -- like using the same bar code number for all five patterns on a new product form - yikes! Or put 290 in the subject line for 229. Double yikes. What's my problem! -- I have done this some 35 times over the years -- but every time, I get all weirded out. Just need to slow down and breathe! But I do get excited about it all.

So here's a peak at a model that United Notions will be displaying at Quilt Market next month.

The model turned out great. Janet from JM Quilting did the quilt work and her pattern looks perfect for this project. Everything will be on the website  -- hopefully later today.
