Make modern Triangles member spotlight: Lillian N.
Welcome Lillian N. to the Make Modern Triangles Member Spotlight! She describes her quilting ID as “all over the place” – I love it!
Lillian is our featured member this week and she is best described as a quilter and sewist who enjoys variety. Lots of it. When you browse her quilt gallery below, you’ll see her playing with triangles and color palettes from traditional to modern designs. And an amazing carryall for quilting supplies! (I so want one).
Her other interests include even more fiber arts! Spinning yarn, weaving and knitting. She also loves reading…but when, Lillian?!
QUILTING Faves and NOT-so-FAVES
What is your favorite quilt make of all time?
I really loved making a rainbow Around the World quilt. The colors are just stunning! Watching the blocks come together was very addictive.
What are your favorite parts of quilting?
What are your least favorite parts of quilting?
Choosing fabrics and color palettes…and binding. (She is rockin’ the color palettes anyway!)
Spotlight on Learning IN MAKE MODERN TRIANGLES
When you joined Make Modern Triangles, what did you want to learn and/or accomplish?
I wanted to learn freezer paper piecing and make the beautiful triangle quilts. They are seriously gorgeous!
What has quilting taught you about yourself?
Quilting has taught me, in so many ways, that I can do hard things. For example, picking a color palette doesn’t come easy to me, but if I work at it I can usually find one I like.
What do you like about quilting with triangles?
They create visually stunning quilts.
What’s next on your learn-to-do list?
I’m signed up for a class to do computer-guided custom quilting on my long arm machine. I’ve seen some gorgeous quilting all done by computer and I’m super excited to learn!
Do you belong to a quilt guild?
I belong to the Bits ‘n Pieces Quilt Guild in Ballwin, Missouri (St. Louis). I’ve been a member for just a couple of months.
What is your next project?
My next quilting project will be a little panel quilt for my granddaughter who is turning 5 next month.
Lillian’s Stash, SEwing Space and INSPIRATION
Describe your fabric stash.
Growing…and growing: I’m a serious collector and started adding fabrics to round out my color and print selections
Describe your sewing space and what you like about it.
I finally have a dedicated space for sewing and quilting! I designed it so it fits my needs perfectly. When the creating tornado is over, everything has a place…and gets put there eventually.
Where do you find inspiration for your quilting?
Quilt shows and Pinterest.
Thank you, Lillian, for sharing your colorful quilts with us. Can’t wait to see what you make next!
