The first issue of Fresh Quilts has arrived! I picked up a copy at Barnes & Noble yesterday and have been browsing through and loving every page of the issue. It's such an honor to be contributing alongside designers like Cintia Gonzalez, Pepper Cory and Victoria Findlay Wolfe.

Here's some of the work I did...

These placemats were my own design, and my introduction to the wonderful world of sashimi hand-quilting. It's become one of my favorite styles.

This confetti quilt was so fun! Definitely making another soon.

I wrote three essays that forced me to delve into style, composition and mid-century modern design. Lifelong learning for the win.

Want to grab a copy? They're at bookstores and craft stores around the country. Launch party will happen in Des Moines in a few weeks!
