Full Circle - Giveaway! March 08 2016 39 Comments

 Stacked Quilt

I generally have a story about most anything, but this one I felt compelled to share.  It is a story of generosity and of paying it forward (or sewing it forward, as I like to say).  It also ends in a Giveaway for you!

This story starts at my first Quilt Market in Pittsburgh in the Spring of 2014.  Here I met Jessica VanDenburgh from Sew Many Creations (and our Featured Designer in December 2014).  I had been overwhelmed with the buying choices, and she graciously gave me her pattern Stacked which eventually became our first quilt kit at Red Thread Studio.

The sample quilt was soon pieced by my mother-in-law, Louise, and quilted by my friend Monica of Diary of a Quilt Maven.

Stacked Quilt Kit

Fast forward to the Fall of 2014 when I was gearing up to launch the website but was in need of a brand logo.  Enter a dear friend from my childhood who also happens to be not only a high school art teacher, but also photographer and graphic designer.  If you knew Andrea, you would know that she is a giving soul.  She worked with me patiently to design the Red Thread Studio logo and would not accept any payment in return.

Now and after nearly a year of vending at quilt shows, we have only one Stacked Quilt kit left and a beautiful quilt that needs a new home.

Well, the Stacked Quilt is on it's way to Andrea, and I couldn't be more excited for her to open the box!  I don't know about you, but my favorite part of making quilts is giving them away!

 Stacked Delivery

And, so that the story does not end, we are giving away the last Stacked Quilt Kit which includes nearly 7 yards of fabric and the Stacked pattern.  Our only request is that you find a way to also Sew It Forward and keep the story alive.
