This blog is about sharing the joy of creating. My name is Lea Louise and I’m so glad you’re here. While you may not be familiar with fabrics and fibers, creativity comes in many forms. My intention is to share my quilting knowledge, experiences, providing you with a bit of artistic inspiration. More importantly, I love to pass along what I’ve learned and also want to teach you to achieve more through personal creative expression. Learning and collaborating together is where the best ideas come from. Please browse my site and find what inspires you.
Fabrics & fibers are my passion. Creativity is a constant part of my life and I’m always planning one project or another. I grew up learning all the needle arts and loved to draw. Once I discovered I could make my own clothes, the fabric store was my favorite spot. As a quilter, I still love fabric stores, but my eyes now focus on beautiful quilting fabrics.
As a beginning quilter, the pattern came first and then the fabric selection. Just like sewing clothes, one step then the other. With over 100 quilts under my belt, I’m enjoying a complete transformation of how I quilt. I haven’t used a pattern in years which has been amazingly liberating. It’s my ‘Stash Quilting’ method and it’s such fun. You’ll discover some imaginative ideas to put your on-hand fabric to good use. The freedom to create according to how the fabric leads me is awesome.
Thank you for being here with me. I hope you enjoy what I share in this blog. I want you to learn something new and be inspired to create more beauty in your life every day.
PS: You can always find me in the crowd, just look for a brightly colored floral print that I’ll surely be wearing! LOL
