Lately I have been meeting some master quilters who are using the new Rouenneries fabric line to design some beautiful quilts and projects.
Desperate Journey, designed and sewn by Keiko Clark, was one of the first quilts I saw using our collection - and I was blown away by the details and spirit of the piece. Keiko is a Japanese quilter who has been teaching quilt making for the past seven years - you can take a class with her at the Prairie Queens Quilt Shop in San Jose, California.
Anne Sutton, of Bunny Hill Designs, designed Le Jardin, a block of the month applique quilt - using nothing but the Rouenneries line. It is a wonderful quilt filled with whimsy and charm. Anne told me that she had never designed a whole quilt using just one collection - but she found everything she needed in Rouenneries - which made me think that there was probably a good balance of lights and darks as well as small and larger prints.
I met Lynette Anderson, from Australia, in Houston - and fell in love with her work - I loved her design sense and small attention to details.
As a newcomer to the quilting business, I feel really lucky to have some of the master quilters designing with our fabric - thank you to everyone who has welcomed us into the quilt world!
