Inspiration For New Quilt Year

We figured we would use Creative Canvass to explain some of the thought processes behind our textile designs. However, our first goal is to inspire – and so we are sharing this very impressive accomplishment:

Donna Diebner is the 70-years-young mom of Mike, one of our textile designers. She recently finished her very first quilt, based on the Snake River Log Cabin pattern by Judy Martin. This isn’t just any first-timer quilt – this quilt has more than a four thousand log-cabin pieces! 

Donna’s friend, Kim Spaeth – owner of Fortuna Fabrics & Crafts in Northern California – served as mentor. But even with tips from a quilt shop owner , it’s still lots and lots and lots of log cabin pieces! Donna’s sweet reward was a blue-ribbon Best of Show award at her local county fair.

She’s also the recipient of our awe and amazement!

We felt compelled to share another example of the artistry of quilting, not to mention the fact that quilting is an enjoyable pursuit at any age! It will sure keep you young!

The lovely lady with her fabulous quilt.
