Folk Fibers.

I’ve always wanted to learn how to quilt. There is just something so special about putting the time and love into something as nostalgic as a quilt. I love that there are an endless number of patterns and colors and fabrics that can be incorporated into one of these cozy masterpieces. Some of mine and Adam’s most prized possessions are our beautiful quilts sent to us by his Aunt Sandy. I love our red one that is filled with endless squares of vibrant color. It’s so beautiful, and every time I wrap myself in it I take a moment to acknowledge and appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into making each one of them.

I LOVED these quilts I found from Folk Fibers. Maura Grace Ambrose’s quilts in particular are each inspired by a different state and are HANDSTITCHED – can you believe that?!  The red one is the “Colorado” blanket and is definitely my favorite. Watch the video about the making and inspiration behind the quilt here.

There is a folk art quilt exhibit at the Bellevue Arts and Crafts museum you should go see! Really interesting history behind what seems so every day.
