Happy New Year Quilty Crew!
What an absolute crazy ride we've all been on these past, what? Two years?! I'm sure I am not the only one who is flabbergasted at the state the world is still in. Life has been a challenge for us all; even to just get pants on that aren't comfy sweats. (& bras, am I right?)
Here at Art Quilts by Design, we've taken this time to reflect on what we are focusing our time on, and why. When I started AQD, we focused on commissions and what the client wanted. Although it has given me the opportunity to meet all sorts of people, it just hasn't fulfilled that creative need deep down. After much consideration, I have decided to close commissions permanently.
"What does that mean for my commission that's in progress?"
- If you have a contracted commission in my que, it means that I will continue to work on your project until completed.
"What does that mean for Art Quilts by Design going forward?"
-Going forward AQD will still be fully operational (minus planet destroying lasers)
What it really means is that I will be getting back to what I am truly
passionate about, and lead me to found AQD to begin with: making creative content. This 'creative content' will be taking on several forms over the coming year.

Perhaps the biggest news I have to share is that Art Quilts by Design will be publishing our own patterns! These are still in Development and testing, so be sure to sign up for our newsletter to be one of the first to know when they become available!
Lastly, I just want to take a moment to thank everyone for their support over the years. It means more to me and everyone at Art Quilts by Design. It has been a turbulent past few years for many of us, and together we'll all get through it. Here's to a New Year, and one I refuse to let be a 2020 2.0!
