Q: Tell us a little about the Modern Neutrals collection. What were you inspired by?
A: Modern Neutrals is the result of my book, which is also called Modern Neutrals. I found while writing the book that there are many neutrals within a lot of fabric collections. Often they have similar undertones to the main fabrics in the collection and don't always work well with other neutrals from other collections. I was later designing fabric, and eliminated most of the color before I was truly happy with the group. In all of this, I think (and hope) that I've found my niche within the fabric industry - only time will tell!
A: I love the entire process, but putting the final stitches into a binding will always be the best part of what I do.
Q: What design trends are you currently exploring?
A: Color, simplicity, and how subtle changes in value can make a big impact in a collection or quilt design.
Q: What projects do you hope to see made with Modern Neutrals?
A: Anything and everything! Quilts, bags, pillows! I can't wait to see what everyone is creating!

A: I have a new book coming in December - Think Big. Think Big includes ten 18" blocks and everything you need to make any size quilt. I hope you will look out for that one! And I'm working on strike offs for the next fabric collection too!
