Did I ever share the story behind the name Farmhouse Quilts? Someone asked me the other day if I lived in a farmhouse when I started my blog. The simple answer to that is “no.” Which made me think that I should explain why I called it what I did….
Years before I started my blog I was already thinking about what I would call my “business” if I ever had the guts to start one. Almost right away the name “Farmhouse Quilts ” came to mind. When I think of a farmhouse, I think of a welcoming, somewhat worn, hard-working, and cozy place.
And when I think of a quilt I might find in a farmhouse I think of a comfy, soft, well-loved, maybe- a- bit- tattered- quilt that you grab and wrap yourself in.
Because I want my quilts to have that homey, comfortable, cozy- up- in- it- feel to it, Farmhouse Quilts seemed like the perfect name.
When I did finally start my blog, we just so happened to live right next door to an old Farmhouse. It had stood guard over the land that many years later became our neighborhood. I loved that house! And so it seemed like another great sign that I had chosen the perfect name.
So that’s the story behind Farmhouse Quilts. We don’t live next door to a farmhouse anymore, and we still don’t live in a farmhouse ourselves, but I will always strive to give our home and my quilts that homey feeling that invites you to come, get cozy, and feel welcome.
Until next time~happy creating!
