QuiltCon 2017

Two of my quilts were included in the "Quilt Design a Day" show at QuiltCon 2017, sponsored by the Modern Quilt Guild.




One of the quilts included were "Reflective Windows," which uses a simple repeating block with a transparency illusion. The quilt is finished with straight line quilting in black, white and teal blue.



The second quilt included is "High Line Medallion," which uses geometric forms to re-imagine traditional Medallion quilts. I added hand quilting to keep the texture soft and emphasize the angular shapes.

Teacup Pincushion

I made this teacup pincushion last year from a vintage Fiestaware cup and saucer. It was a fun little project, and now it's featured in Issue 18 of Make Modern Magazine!



Modern Flower Quilt

I designed this quilt with a low-contrast background and geometric flowers as a gift for my mother, a master gardener.



The shape of the flowers is reminiscent of the birds of paradise that grow in my mom's garden.

Modern Quilt Guild Block of the Month

A quilt block I designed is featured as the Modern Quilt Guild's Block of the Month.

You can find the pattern and an article on utilizing foreground/background in quilt design to give your quilts movement for MQG members only, here


The block is called "Mod economy square" and it has a ton of versatility! Playing with color placement can bring several different areas to the foreground.
Just a few of the different quilt layouts you can make using this block:
