Sweet Retreat's Little Sister

Sweet Retreat's Little Sister is the sequel to our Sweet Retreat Bag. It is a little smaller, has a double front pocket, side pockets and zipper top. The construction is as simple and as fun as the last one! Two day until we leave for Market! Can't wait! Here are some of my favorite shots of the bags!

This Pattern was designed by Kristy Wolf of Wolf Creek Quilting.

Days of Yore

We received our Days of Yore CAD files a few days ago and do they look good or what! We just packaged them up with very few notes and they will be on there way back to RJR today! =] We love it when the colors and everything turn out right! This line will have a large panel, a story book panel, smaller accompanying panels, border fabrics and some really fun tonals! Here is a little preview of the future fabrics!

P.S. We did end up going to lunch yesterday! We drove up to Morrison again with the intention of going to Beso again but they are closed on Mondays! We drove down another block and wound up at  Tony Rigatoni's Italian Kitchen. It was delicious! We carb-loaded then came back to work! It was a blast!

Color Me Mine Adult Size

We made some "Mom" sized or adult sized aprons to accompany the little girls ones! We then to took Meghan out and had her pose for us! She looks adorable! We made one Halloween themed one in honor of the upcoming holiday! One side is green with spiders and the other is a scrappy orange. We thought the perfect setting would be a pumpkin patch! But of course, it is raining today, so we went down the street to Malara Gardens! The owner graciously let us do a little shoot there and even let his dog Zena pose with Meghan! We made two more aprons out of pink, black and white. We put Meghan in front of a book shelf full of cook books with props such as mixing bowls, recipe cards, spatulas, books, and of course a martini! Meghan was such a good sport! Here are the pictures:

In other news, we are shipping our first stuff down to Houston for Quilt Market today! Scary and Exciting! All in all it has been a fun and productive Monday morning! We may go reward ourselves with lunch out!

Wild Goose Chase

Another revamped pattern! This is Wild Goose Chase! Sue designed this pattern before jelly rolls and bali pops existed. And now that they do, we had our good friend Kristy make us up one in the Zinfandel Bali Pop from Hoffman and re-shot it! Here is how it turned out! The colors make me want to pour a glass of wine and sew! Happy Friday everyone!

We have chosen a winner! Anne Quinton's facebook entry "Mosiaque de Mer" took all the marbles! Thank you to everyone who participated! There were some great ideas! Check your mail for a free goodie!

Sassy & the Camera

This was just too cute to not post! This is Sassy using Shayla's camera as a pillow.

Renovated Pattern

We have a new look! All of our new patterns will have a an "L" shaped information box around the edge. The uniform look will allow you to spot a Whistlepig pattern across the store and find the pattern name and number quickly. Along the left side is our name (Whistlepig Creek Productions) and along the bottom is the pattern name and number (ex. #1234 Color Me Mine). We hope you like the new look! Here are some examples!

Bright Colors

We are getting very excited about all of our new projects made up in the new Caterwauling Tales fabric line!  Market is only 17 days away and we are in high gear! We don't feel behind yet... I am sure we will within the last few days of prep time. But for now we are happy and only-slightly-stressed campers!

We are having a contest!! We are having trouble naming this pattern! So, we are enlisting your help! Just comment on this photo with your brilliant name! We will pick our favorite and the winner gets 1 copy of ALL our NEW PATTERNS (before anyone else!) Start brainstorming! 

We will be picking Wednesday at lunch! Make sure you get ideas in before October 12, 2011 at noon MST.

What's New Pussycat?!

Yesterday we packed up the car with our new (to us) vintage bed, pillows, pillow shams, blankets, bed runners and cameras! We drove Morrison Rd. into the mountains. Living in Colorado is amazing! 20 minutes on the road and you are in a completely different world! Just outside of Kittredge we found a little park named 'Little Park' and set up our shoot! Here are the results! This is our new pattern: 'What's New Pussycat?!' Bed-runner and Pillow-shams. We made one out of our new Caterwauling Tales fabric and one out of Hoffman's Bali-Pop and Batiks. The pattern is jelly-roll and fat-quarter friendly!

Shooting in the mountains was so much fun! Instead of it being a stressful event we went back to work refreshed and excited to upload pictures! 

Bed Runners are all the new rage. With about a sixth of the work as a whole quilt, you can have a homemade touch to your bed! Throw in some quilted pillow shams to match and you have a completely custom bed! We all love our big duvets, especially since the weather is starting to cool off, so a bed runner is the perfect touch of color and style to bring your bedroom together!

the Leyvie Bag

This is the newest pattern designed by Kristy Wolf. She named it after one of her adorable purse-loving nieces. Its is fun and perfect for an everyday bag! The Leyvie bag has lots of pockets for organizing and can be used as a clutch, over-the-shoulder or cross-body bag!

Tigger was my little helper for this shoot!

But when the snake snuck-up behind me Tigger just watched.... not very helpful. So I took a few quick shots of the snake, then ran away and called it a day.

On the Go!

On the Go! - Travel Journal Cover
This is our new free pattern for Accuquilt! Watch for it on the Accuquilt website! We made it up in National Nonwovens' wool. It would be darling in some cotton prints too!
