Quilt designing and writing are a fundamental part of my responsibilities at Connecting Threads.
It is without a doubt, the most delightful job. One can only wish to
have a job like this! Interestingly enough, it’s a challenge to write
this because it’s like telling someone how to play! You just do it!
I absolutely LOVE bright colors on a black ground and Home Front
has all that and more. OK, so what is your inspiration when you begin
to create in your quilt room? Quilt magazines? Art? Fabrics? Well, I
love color and the wider the range the better. Color is an interesting
thing, not much more is needed when creating a work of art! Color also
affects our moods, frame of mind, and even our general health! Yellow
gives us energy, blue and green are restful and red gets us all fired
I LOVE Halloween ~ what a fun holiday with tricks and treats
for all to enjoy. In fact, I collect Halloween fabrics and love taking them out
periodically and am entertained by all the sweet, whimsical imagery. All
Hallows Bash will be included in my growing stacks at home.
everyone, my name is Kimberly Purdy, and my company Lilac Cottage
Designs is a new independent designer with Connecting Threads. The
picture is of one of my designs, the Sleep Mat II. It’s a blanket, mat,
and pillow all in one. It rolls up so that you can quickly take it
with you for daycare or sleepovers.
Sue Marsh of Whistlepig Creek is one
of our most popular download pattern designers.
I thought it was time for a designer spotlight all about Sue. Here is what we found out about her. I especially love her advice to new quilters. Read more to see her advice…
