Born and raised in New York (Queens, yo!), I come from a line of seamstresses from Puerto Rico. I've been making stuff since I was a wee. I went on to study Illustration at Parsons but grew disenchanted with the cut-throat competitive aspect of making art for hire.
I rediscovered my passion for playing with form, space, and color when I started sewing. Inspired by the world of zakka blogs and the quilters of Gees Bend (whose work I was introduced to at the High Museum in Atlanta during an awesome road trip), I started making soft toys and playing with patchwork. Eventually, thanks to Denyse Schmidt's first book, I discovered my true love - quilting.
Presently, I live in Cambridge, MA, and teach quilting and patchwork at Gather Here. I design softie and quilt patterns, and I love to make neat stuff!
Conquer your fear of sewing curves with this fresh interpretation of the classic drunkard's path block. Much simpler than you imagine it to be, sewing curves can be fun, easy, and open up a world of design possibilities.
Inspired by a piece of graphic design, this pattern will take you through the process and yield a quilt that is approximately 48 x 72 inches. (Once you make the 4-unit blocks, though, you could easily go smaller with a 48 x 48 inch quilt or larger with a 72 x 72 inch quilt or even larger still.)
