It’s Friday! We got a bunch of snow here last night but I’m not going to let that stop me from heading out on my girls weekend! I’m meeting up with my college roommate – just me and her! We haven’t seen each other in about 10 years! Jared’s got the girls and the farm covered and I’m so ready! That doesn’t change that there is still just ONE MORE Project QUILTING Challenge left which means we have one last Ultimate Weekly Sponsor!
You all still have a few more days before the next challenge (March 12) but we have a great sponsors to meet today! I’m excited to annoucne that By Prairie Light Designs is this weeks Project QUILTING Ultimate Weekly sponsor!
Today we’ree going to find out more about Carol Kunnerup – the lady behind “By Prairie Light Designs.” I’m excited to share a bit more about her with you all!
Q: Who is your favorite fabric designer?
A: I have two right now. Robin Pickens and Tula Pink Their colors and designs have really inspired me. I just keep collecting them and take them out to pet them for a while before I use them.
Q: If you could choose one song to play every time you walked into a room, what would you choose and why?
A: “This girl is on fire,” by Alicia Keys. It makes me feel like I can do anything. It doesn’t matter if I do it well or badly, I have DONE it and that makes me happy. And Alicia Keys, she is amazing.
Q: What would your superhero power be and why?
A: My superhero power would be speed. I need to move a little faster to get more quilts made. Mostly so I can buy more fabric, but, also, to design new projects and fabric.
Q: What was the last gift you gave someone?
A: The last gift I gave someone was a scrappy little table runner. She said she doesn’t like dusting so I shared my secret to reduce the need to dust, pretty table runners!
Q: What is your go pattern for a baby quilt/quick project?
A: Lately I have been grabbing patterns by Jaybird Quilts. Specifically Rock Candy and Seaside.
Q: Tell us about your funniest sewing fail!
A: Oh my goodness. There are so many. Sometimes I like to sew late into the night, no news there for some quilters…lol… I was stitching and stitching just knowing I was getting those strips together, end to end. First, I ended up with a circle and THEN realized that I had sewn without bobbin thread for about 40 strips. I did laugh. But not until the next night. lol….
Anything else you’d like to share is wonderful!
I really learned about scrap quilting from Kim Lapacek. She has these Scrap Quilt Challenges on her website. I started them in 2020. I made just a few of the deadlines, a year later and still have a ways to go. My first scrap quilt was a really learning experience. I just grabbed scraps and slapped them together. It is pretty not pretty. I like it though. Now, after learning lots about Color Theory and spending time and effort to really learn scrap quilting I am teaching scrap quilting. I like to get those scraps used rather than just saved up for future projects.
