It looks great and there are so many different color combinations. This seems complicated, but it is. it's not a pattern designed by carl because i have to do it, why does it look complicated but it's not, because call us to make it, you have to do it, that's right, i have to build it and this is a wonderful pattern, so there are three . sizes in the pattern, you can choose to make a table runner that you can make with scraps or with scraps, you can make baby quilt scraps or scraps or with fat quarters and you can also make the large lap size that you see there in the picture which measures 72 by 84.

Good morning Laura. I see you guys are coming in from Upland too so our tutorial today isn't really a tutorial it's more of a


show we thought it would be fun we have so many new members coming into uh the color works quilt throughout page, we have so many new members joining us on Instagram here and on Facebook.
I thought it would be fun to take you back to where our business started almost 22 years ago and show you some of the Linderella quilt work patterns and talk about the inspiration behind them, because some of them are pretty eccentric. inspiration, I mean, it's not what you think, so anyway, long story short, I started quilting 22 years ago and when I went to make my third quilt I couldn't find any patterns I liked at the quilt store, so we ended up carl and i designed our own pattern which launched our first pattern company which was called


's quote works and we basically started it as a part time business.
We both worked in television and film. I worked at Walt Disney imagining as a project manager. carl was touring hollywood as an art director and production designer working for people like american gladiator judge judy pbs did sets for david bowie and all that other stuff and um so we never intended for this to be a time business complete, but This pattern helped it become what it is today. What you see as color works, so let's start with the strong show. The first pattern was that my kingdom was actually named after a toad. Now this might look familiar to you because, um, this has been revamped. -released last year as mod frog, so it was so popular that it sold over 75,000 copies of this particular pattern and it used to be used by all the sewing machine manufacturers like bernina and husfana viking to teach people how making appliques and things of that nature, but basically this was the third quilt I made and it was the first pattern I designed and it was based on a helium balloon that I had found at Ralph's store of this frog and I thought well, that's a kind of an eccentric character and I think I'm going to design this quilt around him and I used all these fabrics that I found or bought at the recent Road to California show when I took a class with freddie moran, who taught me all about color, basically, so This was originally called my kingdom by toad but now it's called mod frog but this was the first pattern that the pattern company released and I remember when I posted this I was scared to death because no one would want to pay seven bucks a pattern.
This, so I wrote it all down, if you can believe it, four or five or three or four techniques, so there's appliqué with the frogs, there's this kind of crooked piece in the middle and then there's this pieced edge and I thought I had to put many. of techniques in this pattern because no one is going to want to buy a pattern of just some frogs for seven bucks well I made it they loved it so I don't know what to say so anyway second pattern let's see oh secret santa , so this is It's funny, this was a cute little pattern that came up after the frogs and, um, I couldn't, you know, I don't have any artistic training, so I would just sit and draw these things at night while I was watching television.
The character maybe use a greeting card as inspiration or some other image or Carl, that's right, but I didn't shake, I couldn't draw the hands, so that's why Secret Santa's hands are behind his back because I couldn't draw the hands. that was the natural thing, putting your hands, Carl told me, putting your hands behind your back, I thought, oh, okay, that'll work, that's how the hands ended up behind your back in Secret Santa, so we'll move on to the Next and we'll see. what we have uh oh cool cats okay this was another best selling pattern at Linderella's and I should add that some of these patterns are still in print.
We have a few of them on our website for five dollars each. Back in the day, you know you couldn't print on demand like you can today, so you had to print hundreds of thousands, a thousand copies at a time, or sometimes you know that was your minimum run of a thousand copies, or sometimes Sometimes, you know if you thought that way. was going to be a bestseller, you could print 5,000 or 10,000 copies, so we have a few copies left over, so if you visit our website at Linderella patterns, you might find copies of these patterns to purchase for five dollars each a. you like these patterns so these are cool cats and um this is oh thanks nancy said he just ordered the modbox kit thanks nancy um so these are cool cats and this was based on us being flying or at least I was up and down for las vegas this is when the venetian was being built if anyone remembers the venetian hotel um I uh was offering entertainment with an entertainment company um for the venetian hotel for its opening, you know, the week of entertainment, fireworks shows and things like that, so we, of course were inundated with frank dean and sammy davis as the rat group and that was the inspiration among those behind the cool cats which was frank sammy and dean as the rat group and I thought, well, you know these cats are cool, although some people mistook these cats as monsters, I guess at some point I don't believe it, but everyone loved the arms, they could move them around their arms and legs and make them dance and stuff like that, like that that we have the next one which is Sila Moore, so this one. was why not, you know, I mean almost finding Nemo went well, I'm not sure funny Nemo is on, butglasses, the sexy fabric design we made, um, yeah, so Susan says.
I remember seeing them in a magazine, yes, they were very, very popular pumpkin divas, and what's next, I think this is the last one. I screamed for Halloween, this was called eek, that's it, they're eek spiders, right, and this was the beginning of the use of minky, so Beth Hayes, the editor of Quick Quilts, this was when Minky was becoming very popular and she said Linda, what can you do with Minky? And there are a couple of quilts that I'm going to show you, so this was the first one that I made with Minky and I made these crazy spiders, so if you can, you'll know that Minky is a fuzzy web, so those spiders and their legs are all cut. out of minky, so you need to have a lint roller close and at hand when you are cutting minky, simply place the fusible web on the back and treat it as you would any other machine appliqué part except this one.
It was a lot of fun, we made a tote bag and you also have a ribbon on it and there's a rickrack, so if you look really close, you can see going across the table runner there, as Carl pointed out, there's a black rickrack running through it like something like that. a spider web, something that hangs with them, but this was a super fun quilt, super fun to make and then speaking of minky, so these are the other two popular minky minky patterns that came out with quick quilts, one was called reindeer dancing and prancing on top. and the one below that we made, we published it last year as a free pattern when the pandemic started, it's called modern girls or it's known as Easter girls, I don't know, but some people call them modern girls.
People call them Easter chicks. I don't remember what the magazine called it, but they were the originals, as you can see. We're done, the shapes are out of the furry and mink touch, you can feel them, so to speak, so those were some of our magazine quilts, I think I have a couple more yeah this is a slide of some more quotes from magazines that you might find in quick quilts like I said we were there every other month so I can't even remember the name of the 4th of July and then they were the fall leaves and the drunk trees and then the one Upstairs with the cats was just a fun table runner again during my solid phase we called it hi yeah I think we called each other we called it hi so it's like the cat was watching the bird pass by and then the bird passes by.
On the other hand, we wanted all of our quilts to tell a story when you have a happy ending and well, I don't know, it's a happy ending, yeah, the birth certificate, how do you know it's happy? How do you know it's not right? I might change it, how do you know it might not be anyway? So we had our own fabric line, this is another one at Linderella, so in our heyday, as I call it, Linderella's heyday was from about 2000 to about 2006, yeah, uh, yeah. did you ever follow us so this was our own line of fabrics it was called fun and bright or fab okay and it was available for about a year so I remember there were some people coveting this fabric when it came out. but these were a lot of the quilts that were made for this particular book that we still have in our store for five dollars fabulous five um this was a self-published book because the story behind it is that the fabric line was coming out, we had a contract with Leisure Arts, I'll show you that book in a minute to make the fabulous fabric with lots of different designs and all of a sudden Leisure Arts calls us and says, "Oh, I'm sorry, I know you were hoping your book would be published in October when it would come out your fabric, but it's not going to be published now for a couple of months, so we just sat there getting ready to quilt in a week.
Yeah, I think we had like two weeks and it was like what. Are we going to publish the line? of fabric? We need patterns, so we came up with five, five or six patterns that are in this book, as you can see on the cover, and these are some of them, including the one that used all the fabric in the line of fun, bright fabrics and if we move on to the next slide, that's the infamous fabulous quilting leisure arts book that should show that should have come out with the fabric line, thanks for not doing that.
It's out of stock, I must say it arrived. it came out six months later, it came out almost yes, six months later and those are some of the quilts that are in that book, as you can see and again you can see the presence of the black rickrack stems, you had a lot of leftovers, we had a lot. of black rickrack, so there you go and then I think we concluded with a yes, so if Carl gets rid of me for a minute, you see, there we go, these are the booths, so we always went, as you can say, the brightest. stall at the quilt market, so, those yellow curtains, they served us very well from the neon light of ikea, yeah, and no one was doing stalls like this now, when you go to the quilt market or go to any of the shows of quilts, the vendor booths have come It's been a long time since we were doing this in the past, you know, this is like 2002 2006 and we would come to Houston, which is where the quilt market would develop or wherever it would go, we would rent a car, we went to the local Ikea. and we would pick up whatever we needed now the curtains, the yellow curtains, came with us, we would have to ship them and they were the heaviest curtains ever because they were fire retardant so they were this heavy color Kansas canvas fabric Bright yellow from Ikea was fire retardant, which made them even heavier to ship, but Carl would spend hours before the market preparing those little shapes you see cut out, so we reused the grass he cut from the foam core.
I don't know how many times, to make the entrance to the booth, we would change everything around the outside of the booth, whether it was spirals or flowers, and Carl would cut all those things out of foam core or print them. huge pieces of photographic fabric and things like that, then we would go to the local ikea when we got to town and we would go look for what you see on the floor so that ikea would tell you that if you remember ikea in 2003, they had these wonderful shapes of children's rugs , ladybugs or triangles or things like that that you could buy, yes, it was from the children's department at Ikea.
You could buy these things for a dollar each or two dollars each, it was the most magnificent booth decoration you have ever found. I can imagine and the funniest thing in the world is that people would love other suppliers to come because a lot of times when you ship things like this out of town from your home base, you're not going to take most of it. of this house with you, so it's actually too expensive to ship it back, except the curtains, of course, which would come in a suitcase and the quilts for our neighbors' vendors at these quilt markets to come to. our booth and they started to draw or put their name and tag what they wanted and it was cool because we would all have this reputation of going oh everyone has to go to the lindarella booth you should go to the lindale booth she is giving away the ladybug rugs uh uh to the end of the market, oh, go to the booth at lindarellis, she's going to give away, you know, those wire boxes, you know them, so we can use them in our store, go label them, you know anyway, those were the boots that Carl designed all the booths. and these were always the brightest stand.
There's a picture I couldn't find in all our glory that looks down at the quilt market floor from above and all you see is you see all these other booths, but in the middle of them all. the sea of ​​sort of brown and black and curtains and things, you see a bright yellow spot that's our booth, so, um, Pat Sloane's husband Greg took that photo and I can't find a copy, but it's funny . funny photo from that time, so there you have it, you guys are wonderfully kind, thanks for indulging us. It's a little history of Linderella Quilt Works which was our first pattern company from 2002 to 2006 and then we moved to North Carolina thinking we were going to do this pattern company full time and we ended up opening the store of quilts with the same name, which is the quilt work of lindarello and there is another story and that is another story in itself, a chapter of our wonderful relationship, isn't it, Carl?
Yes, it is Well, yes, it was, so now we do this full time. Yes, everyone wants to know, this is a moa. Pauline said: What is that on my necklace? This is called a moa and is considered a tiki good luck charm for anyone. Who likes tiki and that's why I'm wearing this because we're super excited because we're going on Sunday so check out our Instagram page. I think our friend Jen Hixson will also be there from Palm Springs.

They were very kind to accommodate us on that trip. And of course, if you like any of those patterns, check out our website to see if any or more of the ones we made were probably finished at that time. that we did lindarello, I think we designed over a hundred patterns, uh, we actually went through, yeah, maybe more, we did a lot of magazine work, but you know, in the sense of self-publishing patterns, it was probably close to any form of wear of the real self. posting patterns 50 patterns at some point um and we still have a lot of those you know there are printed patterns left that are up for grabs for five bucks in our color shop so I hope you all enjoyed the trunk show so please Of course, the question. to enter for the 10 colorworks gift card that we will be giving away in two weeks, what is your favorite Linderella pattern and if you don't remember it, you can go to the website, look at some and put a name there or you can put frog fish cat cat, you'll hit because there were three different cat patterns I think monkeys you know and of course bats yes you know bat magic so anyway please like and share this particular episode make sure to share it with your groups. and before we get out of here, let's see that everyone is being very, very nice, look at Nedra leaving.
