This very special episode of my continuing virtual trunk show required a new location because my fifth quilt — Cabin Windows – Verona, PA ca. 1768 — was made as a housewarming gift for Shannon Reed and can normally be found draped on her bed. Similar to my previous quilt, Caged Cacophony, this quilt organically evolved from a very nebulous idea into what has become one of my favorite quilts I ever made. It was such a joy making this knowing that I would be giving it to my dear friend who would appreciate everything that went into it. Be sure to watch the video to hear about the process as well as to see some close-ups of the very dense free-motion quilting in all of the sashing.
In this episode of my YouTube series, I sit down once again with Shannon Reed and discuss creativity and her writing process. Be sure to check out Shannon’s new book that is being released very soon and is available for pre-order now! What are your thoughts about the creative process? Feel free to leave any comments or questions on my YouTube channel or contact me here on my website. And be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel so you don’t miss out on any of my upcoming interviews and videos!
