…time to say goodbye!

There are times. . . when it stares you in the face. . . & then suddenly. . . finally. . . you realize that you can no longer avoid it. . . or put it off.

That's what has happened to me. . .

. . . with these. . .

This is just the tip of the 'quilt iceberg' that I have. Quilts that have been made as quilt samples. . . & are done with their days of traveling in trunk shows. . . & as much as I love them . . . they now need new homes.

I use quilts all throughout my home. . . but as a designer, & after several years of making quilts for my patterns & books (sometimes more that one version!). . . the quilt stack can get kinda high.

Over the years, several of my quilts have been given to family & friends, & several have been donated to causes that are special to me. Then, as I was talking to a blogging friend. . . she asked why I didn't put them up for sale on my website?. . . & then within a few days, another friend mentioned that she knew that another designer had done the same. . . so I decided to sort through the quilts. . . 

. . . & I picked a few that I would make available on the website. . . (gosh that was hard!)

So, if you are interested in having an 'Acorn Quilt & Gift Company' quilt. . . but not have to make it yourself. . . you can find them here

(** Hope those of you in the midwest & eastern portions of the US. . . are staying warm!!! Take extra special care. . . okay?!?)

xo, Bren

That is a great idea! I'll say that you have more strength than I do. I don't think I'd be able to part with them like that. Though, I'm not a designer at all so I spend all of my time Ooooh-ing and Aaaah-ing over your work because I can never EVER duplicate anything.

Your work is just beautiful!

Your quilts are beautiful and I have been following your blog for quite a while now, thinking one day I will quilt. I wish I had some extra money to buy one right now (my husband and I are sharing a car so a quilt would be over the top extravagant), but alas I cannot. Keep up the beautiful work!

I feel your pain ;-) I need to be doing what you are doing too! I am happy to say that I let my Dad and his "lady friend" (he calls her that...cracks me up) pick out two quilts for Christmas from my stash of sample quilts. It really feels good to give or sell these quilts to people who really want and will cherish them! Love you and wish you a healthy and fantastic New Year.

Big Hugs,

They are so beautiful, I don't know how you can part with them... I'm sure it will start a "frenzy" on your website!

Great idea and I am sure they won't last long!
