Our Inspiring Designers

Hello! We got a message from Little Quilts designer Mary Ellen Von Holt yesterday that we want to share with you.

New books come in almost daily to  Mary Ellen Von Holt’s shop Little Quilts near historic Marietta Georgia.

One of the new ones from That Patchwork Place/Martingale is “Large-Block Quilts”, by Victoria Eapen. Victoria by the way is a dentist. Mary Ellen was reading the section “About The Author” and read that Victoria’s  introduction to quilt making was in 1997 while in dental school, she  purchased her first quilt book – “Little Quilts All Through the House”, written in 1993,  by Mary Ellen, Alice and Sylvia of Little Quilts. Mary Ellen often hears from customer, and other designers that LQATTH was their inspiration and first book on quilt making. You can purchase the book on their website – www.littlequilts.com, autographed and free shipping!

Many of the fabrics from Henry Glass fabrics, including “Pheasant Run”,  lend themselves perfectly to the patterns in the “Large-Block Quilts book”.

Thank you Mary Ellen! That is wonderful. You can check out all of the fabrics by Little Quilts here.
