I'm finally blogging!

So here it is, my very first post!! 
So when I asked the girls here, 'what should I write about?' the response was.....'really?! Shelley, YOU are stumped for something to say??' Oh hahahaha girls!
But I wanted to tell you about something you DON'T know! If you comes into the store, you know we are fully decorated for Christmas. If you follow our website, you know what's new. If you follow us on Facebook, you may have even seen the pics from Fall Quilt Market in Houston.
But most of you don't know where the magic happens!! Thats right, the special place where I answer your emails, write our patterns and books, send out the e-newsletters, print the patterns, and most important....where I spend most every day!
My most glamourous office!

Now, don't cringe, I happen to like my space!! I have pics of my kids and grandchildren randomly
pinned to the walls! I'm fully willing to admit I'm not the tidiest worker bee, and this keeps me far from the public eye (until now!)

Yvonne, one of our full time staff members made me this cute sign to 'pretty up' my office! My youngest son, wrote notes to me on the wall! And I'm able to pin very important items....cause goodness knows, if it hits my desk, I might never find it again!

This beast is our printer! We print all of our patterns in house, as well as all of our labels, newsletters, signage and anything else you happen to see in our store!
See those calendars behind it, that's our year at a glance! 

So that's your very first peek into some behind the scenes workings of The Quilt Patch!
Stay tuned for more! Maybe I'll show you our wholesale pattern area!!


  1. Love the peak behind the scenes! Good luck with the blog.

  2. Hi Shelley! Another great way to keep in touch! By the way, you should host a blog tour with your new book, "Urban Country Quilts." Have you heard about how to do that? I can help!

  3. Nice to see you here Shelley. I look forward to your future posts. Would love to see pics of the shop decorated for Xmas! Have fun in blog land.


  4. Hi Shelley!!!
