QUILTER OF THE MONTH
This month our quilter of the month is Ellen Covington.
Ellen made her first quilt while a senior in high school. She then took a Beginning Quilting class with Carol about 8 years ago and has been quilting ever since.
She has many favorite fabric styles including Batiks, Robert Kaufman, Michael Miller and Holly Taylor. She uses 100% cotton or Batiks. Grunge and fabrics with sparkle are also high on her list.
Ellen has many notions that she says are favorites like her pressing bar, wool mat and Bloc-Loc. Any of the Quilters Select rulers but uses Creative Grid rulers after spraying the with Odif Grippy to stop them from sliding.
For embroidery designs, Claudia Dinnell is her favorite designer but for quilts and runners it is Doug Leko.
As you can imagine, she lists piecing and embroidery as her favorite techniques and it really shows in her window!
Inspiration comes from many sources - blogs and websites on the internet, going to quilt shops and attending Gone Quilting and admiring other peoples quilts.
Stop by and check out the window of quilts by Ellen!
