Ampersand for Land of Nod

Ampersand Design Studio

This blog post is one we've dreamed of creating ever since we started Ampersand! We have always been pretty much obsessed with The Land of Nod. Their aesthetic and everything they create is simply FUN and such amazing quality! We always receive the Nod catalog and pore over every page to see what they've come up with each season, and we wanted in on the action the minute we started creating designs for license. So, when we formed a partnership with Nod last year, it was, quite literally a DREAM COME TRUE for us!!!! Our dreams turned into sketches, we brainstormed and collaborated with the amazing people of Nod whose creativity and vision make these products come to life (and they couldn't be sweeter, by the way!)

The word excited doesn't even begin to cover how we feel about sharing these products with you! Our hope is that these are pieces people will want in their homes and that they will be the backdrop for many happy memories for parents and kids alike. We've had a blast designing them and seeing them become real over the past year. We can't wait to see them in happy homes, so we hope you'll share your photos with us after you see the Nod shipping boxes hit your doorstep! Thank you so much to all of you who have been following along on this journey with us, cheering us on in chasing our dreams! We are so thankful for your support. So, what do you think? Do you feel the urge to do a little shopping? :)

8 Days a Week: thank you to Stephanie Patton

Ampersand Design Studio

When Stephanie approached us about sewing projects and said she had been working on baby and wedding quilts recently, we knew she would be a great fit! We had been hoping to have a baby quilt to go in our nursery photo shoot and we couldn't have dreamed up one more charming than the chevron number Stephanie put together. We showed her an idea we were considering, and she made it look so much better than we'd imagined. We just love it! We only wish we had Stephanie's sewing talent. When we asked if she had used a pattern, she just said that she "sketched it on the back of a scrap of paper and figured out dimensions." She makes it sound so easy, but we know that it is definitely NOT. Definitely would not have been for us, so we can't thank you enough, Stephanie! Can you please start selling these? So we can buy one (or many!)?

We feel like the quilt makes the whole nursery come to life. Wouldn't this be a sweet gift for a new baby?

8 Days a Week: thank you to Shari Shobe

Ampersand Design Studio

Shari Shobe of Bear Creek Quilting Company in Washington created this amazing quilt for 8 Days a Week! Isn't it beautiful!? We were so excited to see Shari's design in person when we got it in the mail for our photoshoot! Shari custom designs handmade quilts and as she says, she "allows the elegance and beauty of the fabric inspire her  to create beautiful personalized hand crafted quilts that are meant for everyday use and enjoyment." We absolutely love what she came up with from our fabrics! Bear Creek Quilting Company is also an online shop selling quilting fabrics, fabric bundles, patterns, books, notions and tools. Shari also showed at the International Quilt Market in Houston this past October, and the quilt she made from our fabrics was proudly displayed in Windham's booth there, as well. Shari was such a joy to work with and we are so thankful she loaned her talents to our collection! Thank you, Shari!
