Featured Designer: Benita Skinner
What is your quilting style?
I design both appliqué with a touch of Victorian/nostalgia and pieced quilt patterns with simple blocks that make a graphic overall design. My most recent collection is a series of Stuffies Baby Quilts.
How did you get started quilting and/or designing?
After making a pictorial quilt of my own creation [Victorian Manor], I was asked by my quilt guild to develop a workshop.
Do you have a favourite quilt?
That’s a hard one…I’ve recently counted, and discovered I now have over 100 quilt designs, after 10 years of offering my quilt patterns exclusively online. I love all of my quilts, or I wouldn’t enjoy finishing them!
My loveliest, would be my Victoriana Album quilt.
My super quick and easy favourite is Bubbles.
Quick and fun questions:
- Favourite colour:Green
- What part of the quilting process do you like the most? Playing with the fabric
- What part of the quilting process do you dislike the most? Unsewing :)
- Chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, or: Chocolate…and it’s good for you too!
