Kathy's Profile

About

By vocation, I'm beginning a second career as a nationally and state-certified Licensed Massage Therapist. By avocation, among other things, I'm a quilter! I love to play with the gorgeous colors and patterns available in contemporary fabric lines and pull them together into something comfortable, functional, and inspiring.

In my store, I offer lap quilts created with the therapeutic effects of color foremost in mind. These little quilts are ideal for relaxing and stress-relieving activities --- reading, napping, Shavasana, Reiki sessions, meditating, daydreaming, or curling up with your favorite music or movie. They're generously lap-size, and some would also work as toppers for a twin-size bed (twin-size mattresses are 39” x 75”, or 99cm x 191cm). I also offer sets of bookmarks and notecards in the same fabric color palettes as the quilts…

These little quilts are ideal for relaxing and stress-relieving activities --- reading, napping, Shavasana, Reiki sessions, meditating, daydreaming, or curling up with your favorite music or movie. They're generously lap-size, and some would also work as toppers for a twin-size bed (twin-size mattresses are 39” x 75”, or 99cm x 191cm). I also offer sets of bookmarks and notecards in the same fabric color palettes as the quilts.

Each fabric is selected for the subtle effects of its color and the energetic symbolism of its print --- meandering spirals and swirls for serenity, medallions and symmetrical designs for balance, botanical silhouettes for grounding and renewal, firm lines and geometries for stability. Some fabrics are enhanced with non-toxic Shiva Paintstick rubbed or stenciled designs to deepen the personality of the piece. While the colors and patterns are combined into themes, no two pieces in a given theme are exactly alike.

All quilts offered are made with premium-quality cotton quilting fabric, Aurifil and Mettler thread, and Quilter's Dream Green batting. Bookmarks are sewn with quilting fabric and thread, stabilized with Fast2Fuse heavyweight interfacing, and decorated with silk or jacquard ribbons. Notecards are made with acid-free paper, and the quilting fabric embellishments are machine-stitched and applied securely with Mod Podge. Let them inspire you to slow down, reconnect with yourself, and truly relax!
