I love color and texture. I love fabric. I love quilting. I love cooking. I love life.
I’ve been playing with the idea of starting a blog for a while – so here it finally is – my blog! fabriKate & more is the place where I want to share my happenings, fabric work, photos, recipes and stories about the wonderful world of being Katie.
I won’t bore you with details, but I’m a computer project manager nerd who fell in love with fabric, thread and food. I am living in Connecticut and do techy stuff by day, and play hard at night. You will likely see posts about what projects I’m working on, what I’ve been cooking (and recipes too), and my weekend outings. And of course, all of this will be heavily supported with plenty of photos from my digital nerdy side.
Please add your thoughts, opinions, and questions on any post I write. I encourage discussions, witty comments, suggestions for new material, your own trials of recipes, and anything else you can throw at me.
I deeply enjoy the creative process & have been making art in many different media for most of my life.
After getting my first sewing machine at 12 years old, I have mostly self taught myself the quilting techniques I use today, but have also attended various quilting classes to learn from the masters. I am constantly seeking new styles & innovative ways to utilize existing sewing methods to enhance my work via books & courses.
Rather than take the traditional route of quilting designs, my appreciation of color & texture lead me to art quilting which I have used in many different ways to create quilts, table runners, postcards, and more. My work reflects my view of life as well as my love of fabric.
My quilts are constructed using high quality materials, strong quilting threads, & a generous amount of quilting so that it is durable and will last. I use machine piecing & quilting, hand stitching, embellishment, & appliqué processes in a smoke-free environment.
I welcome custom requests. Contact me & we can discuss the details.
Thanks for looking!
