Twenty Years! August 25 2014

What fun I've had for twenty years! I started out with twelve quilt patterns that I introduced at a trade show in Houston, Texas. Now I can't believe that I credit dozens of patterns and twenty books to my name. It has been such a blessing. I still get a thrill when I find the perfect print at the fabric store; and immediately start mixing, matching, and designing in my head.

The biggest surprise has been designing aprons. When I was in college, I did some sewing for an apron company, so adding aprons to my pattern line was a perfect fit. Quilt fabrics drape so nicely, and come in so many fun coordinating prints and colors that work great on clothing. So yes, we love aprons at Cabbage Rose.

Here's to more fun designing ahead. My grandkids are sure to supply an endless source of new ideas.
