The PAINT party is in full swing. Today, I am happy to share one of my dear friends, Shea Henderson. She created this eye-catching bold and graphic quilt using a soon-to-be released Empty Bobbin Sewing Studio pattern, called Parallels. Parallels will be printed as a pattern book, full of six different quilt designs (each in sizes baby to king!) based on parallelograms. It was designed by Elizabeth Ancell.
Exciting news! I am thrilled to be included in a new book from Martingale/That Patchwork Place called modern baby: Easy, Fresh, and Fun Quilt Designs. My first ever quilt project in a book. WOot! Who doesn’t want to be in a book, right? Right.
modern baby is a lovely, curated book with fun quilts for babies designed by modern quilters/ bloggerssuch as Shea Henderson (of Empty Bobbin) and Carolyn Friedlanderamong others.
The book is available for pre-order and will ship in April. Pre-order at Amazon, Barnes&Noble, or sign up at ShopMartingale.com to receive an email notification when the book is ready for purchase.
Many of you have met my amazing mom. She’s rather likeable and charismatic. She is bold and brave and a take-charge kinda gal. I love going to Quilt Market and Festival with her because she is my one-person cheerleading squad. She is incredibly supportive of me and always has been. And we laugh a lot together.
Hello, friends. I just got back from Fall Quilt Market 2012 and thought I’d share a little bit of what I saw. It was good…and eye-opening…and interesting. I didn’t have a booth this time, but I will at Spring Market in Portland in May where I will debut my first ever collection of fabric for Windham! yay! But anyway, it was interesting because I wandered around the show as a spectator and I saw things differently. Here are a few observations about Market:
The Modern Quilts collection is based on small quilts that I created to illustrate each of our Full words. Forgive the cropping on the photos, some are not final images:
The Reflections collection is an artful line based on my abstract paintings and evoking each of the accompanying Full words. I chose meaningful quotes for the interiors: Interior: “Dwell in Possibility.” ~Emily Dickinson
Interior: “Follow your bliss.” ~ Joseph Campbell
“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ~Pablo Picasso
