The design of fine hand - 'works of heart' that will become the treasures of the times to come is the goal of Brenda Riddle Designs & Acorn Quilt & Gift Company.

From quilts, embroidery, counted cross-stitch designs, & the special notions & treasures that make each day just a little bit more special - I hope that as you explore the website & journal, you will sit back enjoy your visit!

'From little acorns. . . mighty oaks grow!'  You will find that this little saying truly does encompass our philosophy. My designs are created for both those who are both new to quilting or needlework, and for the more experienced. So, if you see a design that you love or inspires you - but doubt your ability. . . just remember, one little step at a time, and. . .'from little acorns'. . .!  

I feel so blessed to get to do what I do. . . to design the quilts, stitcheries, & fabrics that I love (& I hope you do too!). You will find that I love the home-y, cozy, 'vintage' look  - & that look & feel is reflected in the projects I design. To me that sense of 'comfort' is central to my designs, & I hope that each one brings that soft, cozy feel to you as well.
Thank you for visiting my website, and I want to personally thank you for all of the support & encouragement so many of my wonderful customers and friends have graciously shared with me.

I wish for you all the love & 'comfort' that your heart can hold!

xo, Bren
