Ludlow Quilt and Sew

There was an old woman who lived in a shoe

She had so many quilts she didn’t know what to do …..

Over ten years ago I began to write quilt patterns and tutorials.  I wanted to help beginner quilters by providing patterns for quilting projects that could be broken down into small steps.  At the time there were not many websites doing this, although the situation is very different now.

I have been making a new quilt top at first every week and then every fortnight. I rarely have time to finish these quilts and now my cupboards and rooms are filled to overflowing with fabric and unfinished projects.  I have decided that the time has come to begin completing these projects rather than making still more new ones.  So I have decided (reluctantly) to close down the website.  I don’t want to lose all those patterns and articles so over time they will become available as books or in printed form through my Etsy shop.

There’s not much there at the moment but I hope to add to this as I complete some quilts!  Since writing this I have found that I can sell digital patterns on Etsy, so I am busy adding these.  Let me know if there are any particular patterns that you want me to add to the shop.

My Ludlow Quilt and Sew facebook page will have to close but I am in the process of creating a page called Rose Smith Quilts where I will be able to share my quilts as I finish them.

Many quilters have been with me for many years and I want to thank all of you for your interest and support over the years.  I have been sending an email to nearly 9,000 subscribers on Fridays and I have 20,800 subscribers on Youtube.  I will miss you all!

PS.  I have been totally overwhelmed and humbled by the mountain of responses that I have received – via comments here, email and social media.  Thank you all so much.  Please forgive me if I am a little slow in replying, but I will reply to every one of them.
