You may have noticed the previous post is a much longer video about this same quilt. That video takes you through the process of making this quilt from beginning to end. But I wanted to provide a virtual trunk show version for those of you who don’t want to sit through a 40-minute video. You’re welcome! 😁 This quilt is called Patchwork Memories and was created for the Brooklyn Quilters Guild’s fourth outdoor fence show called Recycle Reuse Reimagine. Although the design of this quilt is very simple, it’s a bit more complicated than it seems. Watch the video to find out why!

I call this set of three quilts Jane’s Feathered Friends. My mom commissioned this quilt to hang over my parents’ bed. I designed a set of three panels with appliquéed birds, branches, and leaves. Hopefully the viewer gets the feeling of looking out three narrow windows over the bed to see a tree full of happy singing birds. Watch the video to find out more about this quilt.

This quilt was made for the Brooklyn Quilters Guild’s third outdoor quilt show that took place in October 2021. The theme of the show was “Come Together,” inspired by the Beatles song. I call this quilt Convergence. It is by far the most quilting I’ve ever done on a quilt, so I’m sure glad it was only 36″ by 36″! Watch the video to find out more details about how this quilt “came together.”

This is my first t-shirt quilt, made from some of my husband’s MANY concert tees. I initially thought making a t-shirt quilt was going to be a huge pain, but it actually went very smoothly, especially once I figured out some tips I share in the video. So I guess that means you should watch the video to find out how this all came together! 😁

This quilt was made for the Brooklyn Quilters Guild’s second fence show where the theme was Earth Day. I made his quilt to bring attention to the global water scarcity crisis, and so I named this quilt Scarcity. Please check out water.org to learn more about this crisis that affects us all, whether we live in a water-rich or water-scarce area of the world.

This quilt is called Enter the Dreaming. It was commissioned by my older brother and his wife for their king-sized bed. It is officially the largest quilt I’ve ever made at this point. I definitely need a larger workspace before I attempt something this size again! Watch the video to find out about all the details!

I’ve made a few quilts this last year, so I’m starting up my virtual trunk show videos again. This video showcases a quilt I actually made in late 2019, but I wasn’t able to show it earlier because I didn’t have it in my possession when I was making my original trunk show videos. But never fear! Here it is now! I call this one Spectrogasmic Therapy. Watch the video to hear more about it!

I’m so happy that I finally got to interview someone in person again! This is an interview with artist Amy Fung-yi Lee. We chat about her work, her process, and creativity in general. It was very cool to conduct the interview in Amy’s home/studio and to see everything she’s been working on recently.
