More on the Stitch TV Pattern Launch

As you know, I am not a big fan of patterns. Patterns weren’t available in large numbers, if at all, when I learned to make quilts and I never really learned to use them. Yes, of course, there were quilt patterns in magazines, but the packaged stand-alone quilt patterns were not available back in the dark ages.

I do admire the possibility of small business owners creating patterns and making them available. That there are so many indie / women-owned businesses is one of the great things about the quilt industry.

The StitchTV company, Ed & Eddie LLC, is one of those small businesses. One of the things I noticed about the Stitch TV pattern samples were the different fabrics used. In the photo above, you can see at least 4 different fabric groups. While this grouping does not comprise all the possible fabric combinations, it does give the shopper a good idea of how the design will look in different fabrics.

There are so many patterns now. All of us have a quilt ‘to do’ list that extends beyond our lifetime, so we have to be more choosy about adding new things to the list. Marketing patterns with a variety of samples is imperative now.

Great job, Pam and Lynn!

  1. Thanks! We keep coming up with new ideas for the tablerunner, too, for various holidays and events. Fun fact: we didn’t even use the design that started the original tablerunner pattern, but it’s waiting in the wings for its debut!

    1. I did a quilt that was mostly turquoise, but had some beige in it that I thought was successful. Even though beige is in the brown family, I can see where it can be useful sometimes.
