I’m still quilting, although coming through a long, slow, slow, slow period of “maker's-block”. Life got in the way a bit and I lost the momentum of frequent studio time, which is one surefire way to drain your creative mojo quickly. Since moving to San Francisco a year ago, I’ve made a much better effort to give myself room to work on projects without too many expectations. I’ve also tried to rebuild some type of creative routine and practice. I’ve been chipping a few long-idled projects off my list, This beautiful custom quilt for Carey is one of them. Read more about Carey’s Custom Quilt. This quilt was created especially to feature vintage bed linens that belonged to Carey’s grandmother. It was such a pleasure to work with such personal materials and ensure their continued use and presence in Carey’s life. Hand quilting is still my favorite part of the process, and I continue to be obsessed with adding little wool ties that will eventually felt into bitty, wonky pom-poms.
