Yep I've been MIA for awhile, sorry about that. I've been very busy working on the upcoming International Quilt Market. Part of my job is designing the Moda booth and since I can't show you what I've been working on for this coming market I thought I'd show you some of the crazy things I've done for past markets. This was my very first go at paper mache, a 4 foot wide crab named Crusty..naturally. The crab was illustrated by one of the Moda designers children and brought to life by me & my coworker Elida. #internationalquiltmarket #propdesign #showmethemoda #papermache #crab #3dimensional
Summer in the City was Urban Chiks very first group. It always tickles me when I see people using/ hoarding/ collection it. @lemontreestudio did a fabulous job using it in her daughters room. How cute is this fabric covered screen ❤💕❤️💕 #urbanchiks #urbanchiksfabric #summerinthecity #summerinthecitybyurbanchiks #showmethemoda
I saw a lot of things in my short visit to Savannah. I may or may not have seen a ghost 👻. I may or my not have played a few pranks. But I know I saw THIS AWESOME QUILT!!! It's called Permanence by @dsrouse This has to be my overall favorite quilt from Quiltcon. If you follow my other Instagram account @thisiswhatido u know I make oversized portrait quilts. All I can say is I wish I would have thought of this quilt on top of a quilt idea. This is spectacular ✨⚡️🔥 #quiltcon #quiltconeast #quiltcon2017 #skullquilt
My 5 yr old son saw this picture of @lelandavestudios quilt of Lincoln and asked "who is that?" I told him it was president Lincoln. He said "He can't be a president!" I asked why? "He said because he didn't have a tv show, Donald Trump did". It's interesting to see how our children perceive our world today. I don't know if I should laugh at this comment or cry. Either way this is an Awesome quilt. Job well done 👏🏻 #quiltcon2017 #quiltcon #quiltconeast #lincolnquilt
