Where I Sew – Debbie Grifka of Esch House Quilts

on Jul 11, 2013 in Where I Sew | 69 comments

If you see me staring off into space, there is usually something quilt-related going on in my mind, whether it is designing a new quilt for my pattern design company, Esch House Quilts, or solving a problem with a current one. I describe my style as graphic modern minimalism and love to make quilts with clean lines and bold shapes.

I can be found as eschhousequilts on most of the popular social media sites. I’ve been fortunate to have my quilts displayed at several national quilt shows, to have my work in magazines and to be appearing in the current season of Quilting Arts TV.

  1. Debbie must love the natural light that comes in from both windows, always a plus for any sewing area.

  5. This is a great use of space without feeling like a utility corner. I’d love to see how the space under the counter is organized.

  6. I love your chair’s slipcover and how it matches the “curtain” under the desk!

  7. This is wonderful! I love the long and thin surfaces that probably conserve space in the room. I also really like the curtain that hides the storage under the one counter. 🙂

  10. Love your space! I like how your machine is the center of everything. Just go left to cut and right to press.

  20. I’ll have to steal the fabric curtain idea to hide what’s underneath my table.

  21. I like the use of fabric under the counter/table instead of something with drawers/doors. The space can probably be used more efficiently and flexibly. Tucking this idea away for future reference!
