Meet The Quilts Featured on Daytime

Today my segment with WFLA on young, hip quilters aired! It was a challenge choosing which quilts to bring with me as they all have a special meaning but I whittled it down to my more modern-looking quilts to be displayed during my segment. I’ll talk all about the segment and how it happened on the next podcast episode.

The Iris Quilt – Finished in 2013 this quilt was made using the melted crayon technique from the book Creative Quilts From Your Crayon Box


The Super Mario block is part of a quilt-a-long project that I am working on. I created a fun tutorial on how to achieve this look using strips of fabric and Quiltsmart grid interfacing.


Paper-pieced Rainbow Pillow – finished in April 2016 this fun rainbow was made using Boundless fabric solids and a newsprint text fabric as the background.


Rainbow Insomnia – a fun take on a lonestar from Kimberly Einmo’s book Jelly Roll Quilt Magic

    I finally had time to watch your video! You did a wonderful job. I’m sure that was really nerve-wracking, but you were great! I hope it generates some new quilt-loving peeps.
