Last year while exhibiting at a craft show, an executive from Blank Quilting Corporation stopped into Kristin's booth to admire her artwork. They exchanged contact information and very shortly thereafter began discussing the possibility of Kristin designing a cohesive collection of twelve prints. Always up for a challenge, Kristin jumped at the opportunity!
The "Day of the Dragonflies" collection is inspired by the ever-popular sugar skull theme, but with a girly twist. Kristin took her love of florals, spirals and dragonflies and intermingled them with the sugar skulls. Most of these feature the color palette so indicative of Kristin's love of tropical flowers and ocean vistas. However, in light of the hot trend of coloring books as the "new meditative technique for stress relief", we left a few of the prints in black and white. You can custom color your own palette and relieve stress at the same time!
Having a background in sewing long before knitting and crochet, expect to find Kristin designing beach quilts and tote bags when she can get her hands on the first bolts of fabric! Also, look for Kristin's first digital quilt design patterns to be launched very soon. Kristin is thrilled to be working with Blank Corporation, and is already working on the next collection!
