As a child, Laura grew up in a family where used clothing was purchased and altered to fit and by high school, Laura was designing her own clothes. At age 16, she made a Cathedral Window quilt and from then on she was hooked.
Laura shared a lot of information as she went along, showing us her unique sleeves on the backs of her hanging quilts and how to work successfully with panels. She also shared a great way to simplify fidget quilts by cutting 5 ½” squares of fabric and batting and then sewing on the bobbles, etc. before laying them on a piece of flannel and “taping” by sewing double folded strips on top to join the squares together.
She made the morning fun with her positive attitude and doing several draws for patterns and fabric throughout her presentation.
Six years ago, Laura started posting on YouTube and loves receiving the appreciative comments from her followers. In March, Laura has a quilting book coming out and the first few quilts she displayed represented the patterns that are in it. To find out more, be sure to visit Laura’s website here or her YouTube channel here.
