I’m excited to be a part of the blog party today for my friend Sam Hunter‘s fun new book, Quilt Talk (Stash Books). I met Sam years ago at the Long Beach Quilt Festival and we connected through our art school pasts. Sam designs patterns for her company Hunter’s Design Studio. We swapped stories and ideas. I always enjoy speaking with her–she has a cool and calm spirit.
Time for a blog party to celebrate my new DVD with Interweave, Art Techniques for Quilt Design! woot woot! No matter what we do as creative people, we all need some reminders, tips and techniques to help us enhance our work and design process whether for quilting, sewing or any other form of art expression. My DVD is full of wonderful things I learned in art school and over the course of my life as an artist and painter. These little things can make a big difference in your designs.
Are we having fun yet!?! I love sharing these amazing designers with you. Today, I am excited to shear the wonderful creations of Ramona and Jenny.
Ramona is the poster child for the badass, L.A. modern sewinista. She is crazy-prolific, super smart (think Yale grad) and she manages to get a shocking amount done with her three beautiful kids in tow.
Yay! So excited to finally share my next fabric collection, PAINT, for Windham Fabrics with you. As a designer apparently you just learn to sit on your hands and endure the waiting. I designed this line in September and sent it to Windham. We had some back and forth and it was done by October. And ever since I have waited as we go through the process of strike-off’s and color correcting and then ultimately they send me fabric.
