Pippa Eccles Armbrester's Profile

About

Hello! Welcome to my colorful quilted corner of Etsy. I'm a fulltime quilt maker and designer living in the wonderful city of Boston with my husband and teacup poodle Martin.

I grew up in a large, creative family and have been making things with my hands for as long as I can remember-- from clay figurines to beaded keychains. I started quilting in college, and was instantly hooked. Over the years, my style has evolved toward a focus on solid colors (lots of them!) and simple but striking geometric design. My preferred quilting fabrics are Kona cottons (solid-colored quilting cottons) and Shot Cottons (composed of differently colored warps and wefts)-- with soft, cuddly flannel backings. Above all, I strive for an aesthetic that pays hommage to the tradition of quilt making with a truly contemporary spin.
