My First Quilt: Part 1

Designing my first quilting fabric collection, "Mekana Isle," has inspired me to sew my first quilt.  Intimidated, but determined, I found a beginner friendly pattern and got to work.  I used designs from my collection and screen printed them onto kona cotton.  I cut, I stitched, I seam ripped, I stitched some more.  I am happy to report the top of my quilt came out a success!!  Now for the triple "B's" - binding, batting, and backing….

Learn more about my journey thus far below...

The Charlie Collection - Garden District

Here is the fourth textile in my collection titled "Garden District."  This floral design is art deco inspired and named after an adorable section of Charlotte I stumbled upon recently.  Below you'll find "Garden District" in four different color ways.  I also had some fun screen printing this onto fabric yesterday in the emerald color scheme…

You've met Latta and Eliza, now I present to you Noda.  This is one of my favorites because there are so many ways to print it.  One color, two colors, three colors, four!  Below you will find Noda in repeat sticking to my color story.  You'll also find Noda screen printed and sewn into coin purses, which are available at www.mokoandco.com.

The Charlie Collection - Eliza

Meet Eliza!  Here is one of my designs from The Charlie Collection.  Eliza came from one of my photographs of Charlotte.  I sketched out the motif, manipulated it by computer, and voila!  Here she is in eggplant, mauve, and slate.

Charlie - Motifs

Here is a glimpse at the motifs I have been sketching up.  I used inspiration from my images/mood board to get these shapes - then will use Photoshop/Illustrator to manipulate them into patterns.
