“I saw it across the floor at Quilt Market and felt like running to it. I knew it would be perfect for our customers!” That’s what Cheryl, our buyer, said happened when she first spotted the All Through the House quilt that’s now featured on the cover of our Holiday 2018 catalog. When the quilt arrived in the office for photography, the staff fell in love with this wonderful quilt, too. It looked so clean and fresh in solids.
Roxie and Joe Wood of ThimbleCreek designed that cover quilt. Cheryl loved their style so much that she chose two of their other designs for our fall and holiday catalogs. Anyone who likes their All Through the House quilt (#1009351) is bound to like their Readin’ and Writin’ and ‘Rithmetic quilt (#1009345). It’s so classic with a Schoolhouse block in the ever-popular two-color combination of red and white. Not so classic, but just as wonderful, is the Creature Features quilt (#1009348), which Cheryl chose for the back cover of the fall catalog. A two-color palette takes a spooky turn in this fun quilt that pays tribute to the horror movies shown on Bob Wilkins’s popular 1970’s Saturday-night TV show in Northern California.
Cheryl considers a trip to Quilt Market a success when she finds talented people like Roxie and Joe Wood who are creating quilts that are sure to be a big hit with our customers. It’s how we manage to make every catalog fun, fresh and new.
