Andrie Designs Month in Review – October 2018

Month in Review - October 2018 - Andrie Designs

October was an incredibly busy month around here at Andrie Designs. We were knee deep in Quilt Market prep on top of pattern releases, blogs posts and so much more! Have a look below at what we did and the latest shared creations!

Pattern Launch – Peekaboo Purse

Originally released as the Tilda Club pattern for the Australian distributor 2 Green Zebras, the long-awaited pattern, the Peekaboo Purse was released! The Peekaboo Purse is a darling little shoulder purse featuring a pieced flap, which has been designed to show off a favourite fabric in a ‘peekaboo’ type fashion. Head to the release post to see all the tester photos and be inspired!

    I’m confused, newsletter says to ‘hit the button’s to enter giveaway, am I being dense and this is the button? (It is 3am!) 😶

      Hi Kaytessymnan! There is a big aqua button in the newsletter, just a little bit further down from the giveaway blurb, that says ‘Click here to submit your answer!”. Hope that helps and good luck!
