Erin Russek

How did you get into quilting?

I started quilting when I was a student, it helped preserve my sanity. My first quilt fell apart due to there being very little quilting (It was tied actually).

Second Quilt

How/when/why did you transition from a quilter to a designer?

When I was working on my quilt Bluebird’s Piece O’Cake I decided to try and design my own center block and border. I loved it and haven’t stopped yet.

Which quilt is your favourite? Did you design it? Why is it your favourite?

Miss Hannah is my favorite. Mostly because it was the center of my first Block of the Month and is named for my daughter.

Miss Hannah

How many UFOs do you currently have? Too many to count

What colour do you use most often in your quilts? Pink

Favourite one-sentence tip for a new quilter: Practice

Favourite size and brand of rotary cutter: Olfa

Favourite quote or mantra: well, one piece at a time (get it?)
