6th Birthday Celebration – Chalkette Profile – Kathy

on May 23, 2014 in Chalkette Profile Series, Sewing | 5 comments

What I Sew: I swing back and forth between quilts and accessory projects like scarves, bags and small things like mini-wallets. I love mixing color and pattern to create something totally unique that makes me smile. Sewing gifts for others brings a lot of joy to my life.

6 Fun Things I Have Made:  

Modern Cross Quilt, Mini Wallets (my own design), Peacemaker Quilt (made with Parson Gray fabrics and coordinating basics – no pattern), Pink Chalk Studio Mail Sack,  Serendipity Studio Camelia BagPink Chalk Studio Line Dance Baby Quilt (free pattern)

Favorite Blog: House on Hill Road. I’m very old school on the blog circuit. Nostalgic for the ones I began reading when I first started this blog in 2006. Sort of like listening to late 70’s music on the radio. Journey, Blondie and the Cars always soothe my soul. I had the opportunity to meet Erin Harris for the first time in person at quilt market last year. What a lovely person she is. Just like her beautiful writing and making.

Favorite Pattern Designer: Denyse Schmidt. I still remember how I felt after purchasing and savoring every page of Denyse Schmidt Quilts. Wow. It expanded my world view of quilt design, using solid fabrics and making small crafty projects. Her work significantly influenced my own style and I still love everything she creates.

Favorite Fabric Designer: Carolyn Friedlander. I see a lot of fabric. A LOT of fabric. Which means I’m pretty opinionated about this topic. Carolyn’s fresh aesthetic adds a unique contribution to the world of fabric design. Love, love, love her work.

  2. Wow, I can’t believe that it’s been six years since you’ve started your lovely online fabric shop. It’s been quite a while since the blog started. I think we both started within a month of each other back when the Back Tack swap was still going on. (My kitty cat is still sitting on my shelf.) Congratulations and keep it up!
