Matching Pegs has a new look! Over four and a half years after I started it, Matching Pegs has had a much needed overhaul, and I can’t be more pleased. Luke, my clever husband, gave it a make-over, after quite a lot of consultation with me. I absolutely insisted that there be pegs, and the pegs be coloured (he was pitching for white). We went looking for just the right fonts and found the perfect one for my header – Corner Store by Jukebox type, which you can find here.
Once we put up the new look, I realised just how dated the old one was looking. The new look allows for much bigger images, (although, in this screen shot of the old blog, they look bigger too, because we took the shot after we had started the makeover) and is designed to re-size smoothly on smart phones and tablets.
The side bar still has some tweaking to go – we have planned out how it will look, but we couldn’t wait to share what we have changed so far. If you are reading this is a feed-reader, pop on over to my actual site for a good look.
This new look has been prompted by a new development, I am launching a range of my patterns this November at the Australian Quilt Market, which is a trade show for all the Quilt shop retailers, who are hopefully going to fall in love with my patterns, and start stocking them in your local Patchwork and Quilting store. I have been working hard on all of my patterns, which tie in with the new look and logo, and have even had real life people testing them.
