Q: Where did you find your original inspiration for this collection?
A:I have always been fond of Pink and Navy quilts. To me they just say this is a quilt. I especially love pink and navy basket quilts and little hexagons made in these colors. I added the brown as an accent for the line.
Q: What movie does your collection fit best in?
A:I would have to say “Gone With The Wind”, which is my all time favorite era.
Q:Tell me about your sewing machine(s). What kinds do you have and how many?
A:I have two Berninas, two Elnas and several Singer Featherweights. I still like to hand sew and hand quilt as much as I can. It is so relaxing to me.
Q:What is your favorite part of the fabric industry?
A:I would have to say creating a new fabric line that I personally want to sew from. Especially designing with the colors that I like to use in my quilts.
Q:What is your favorite print in the collection?
A:Pattern O257, the Strawberry Leaf Stripe. It is so dainty and sweet!
Q:What is the most challenging part of the design process?
A:Getting it really coordinated so all of the prints have a place in the quilt it will be going into. Also using very unique looking prints, so they stand out and say “buy me”.
Q:What are your favorite and least favorite colors and why?
A:I like blues, browns, golds, reds and sage greens . I do not like oranges, fuchsia, or bright greens. They just do not fit in my color palette or in any quilt I would make.
