Week 35: Lorinda from Laurel, Poppy and Pine
Happy Monday, friends! I am so excited to be taking over the 52 Quilters blog and social media feeds this week!
Let me introduce myself:
My name is Lorinda Davis, and I have been quilting for a little over three years. My quilting journey began back in the spring of 2013 when my (then home schooled) children each made a quilt block for a Civil War project. I was intrigued by the way the block changed so dramatically as a result of the kids’ different color and fabric choices. And as they say, the rest is history… from that moment, I was hooked.
Now that my kids are all in public school, I spend my days quilting, playing with color, creating quilt patterns, and designing fabric.
I am a northwest girl through and through. The mountains and forests that surround me are my 'happy place'. I am constantly inspired by the colors I see in nature, and feel very fortunate to live where nature abounds.
My style leans toward the modern, using lots of solids and saturated colors. I like geometric designs and bold blender fabrics.
On of my favorite things to do is explore color. In fact, each day during the school year (and many summer days), I create a new color palette to share on my @dailycolorpalette Instagram account. I also co-host a weekly challenge called Color Play Friday that takes a picture and translates it into a palette and fabric bundle. It's a great way to stretch your imagination in your fabric choices!
You can see more of my work at my website www.laurelpoppyandpine.com. or on my Instagram account (@laurelpoppyandpine). You can also see my fabric designs on my Spoonflower shop.
I'm looking forward to sharing with you a little glimpse into my life this week. Feel free to email me any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
Happy Sewing! ~L
