Updated Design Wall

I recently updated the design wall in my studio...



I really needed additional space to work as my original design wall is always occupied. As a temporary solution, I had clipped felt on to binder clips and hung them from nails. To make it more permanent, I taped together styrofoam sheets, covered them with the felt, stapled the felt to the back, then nailed them to the wall.

I now have over 60 sq. feet/18 sq. meters of space to work!

Quilt Prototypes

I recently took the time to finally photograph some of the quilt prototypes I made a few months ago. I would like to start selling my quilts, and photographing them is one of many steps in that direction. I had been putting it off, making excuses about where to photograph them, how to style the photos, etc. A friend told me to just get it done and use what I had. So I put some nails in the wall in my apartment, found some bulldog clips, hung the quilts, and got out my camera...

The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters

I’m so excited to be a part of Sherri Lynn Wood’s book, The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters: A Guide to Creating, Quilting, and Living Courageously.



Sherri asked me to submit my quilt Letting Go, which was selected as an example for the “Get Your Curve On” score. I created the quilt a few years ago from a tutorial that Sherri shared on Flickr, which ultimately was included in the book.



See more test quilts for the “Get Your Curve On” score here.

It’s thrilling and humbling to see my quilt appear in print. Thank you to Sherri for the invitation to participate.
