During my time here, I’ve learned many essential tips to what it means to be a quilter and what are major necessities when quilting. A quilter’s stash is especially important! After seeking advice from my coworkers who are avid quilters, it seemed like a great idea to create a collection that would be a stash building collection. So I first created Neutral Love, with the intention of it being solely neutral colored prints; blacks, browns, greys, tans, creams, etc. Neutral Love was a great hit by our customers, so it was a no brainer to bring it back. Or at least bring the concept back...so Neutral Love II was created!

I was thinking… what can be made for Valentine’s Day that’s fun, but not too much work. A pincushion is perfect! Where to begin, so I started drawing the most obvious image, a heart. How about, two hearts that fit together so well that without one it would look like something was missing? Hey, February is American Heart Month! Perfect!

Last year at this time I was preparing to go on vacation to Mexico, leaving the cold Northwest for the sunny tropics of Playa del Carmen. I had never been to Mexico but grew up in California and had always been exposed to the vibrant culture. It instantly got my creative juices flowing; bright, fun images floating in my mind. I absolutely love folk art and have always been drawn to Mexican folk art and embroidery in particular. I wanted this ¡Fiesta! to be a fun, bright, vivid, cheery group that had folk art elements and that just made one smile when they saw it.
