I got a new order yesterday, and the first item listed was the Chili Rounder pattern. It isn’t surprising. It has been my best selling pattern.
Sandra Eichenberg (owner of Quilts Ol`e in Corrales, New Mexico)and I were brainstorming pattern ideas at her shop one day when she said she would like to see chilies formed in a circle for a round table. I said, “You mean a Chili Rounder rather than a Chili Runner?” She said, “YES!”, and I ran with the idea.
I don’t know if it sells well because it is an interesting concept, or because there are three sizes in the pattern, or because it can be hung on a wall, or even cut for a Christmas Tree Skirt. Whatever the reason, it is my best seller, and I am forever grateful for Sandra’s inspired idea.
