Thought you might like to see our 2nd pattern we are debuting shortly - it's called Navajo Trade Blanket.
It was certainly inspired by Native American weavings, particularly the trade blankets made by the Navajo women in the late 19th century. We love them and are inspired by their strong colors and geometric wizardry. It was fun to interpret the look of them into piecework. You will be amazed at how quick and easy it goes together as there are no cut bias - it's all made from squares and rectangles. Of course, it uses our fabric collection - Independence Trail - which is currently being shown to shop owners for order. It should be in the shops for everyone in late summer. Navajo Trade Blanket measures 54" x 72". I expect this and the other new patterns to go up on the website this weekend for pre-order.
It's absolutely beautiful here in Michigan. We have a nice weekend planned that includes our Easter tradition of going to a baseball game. Hey, this year it looks like we will even have a warm day. Happy Holidays.
