Guest #10 @ Wantobe Quilters - Monica -Cut, Snip, Sew, Make Pretty






Hi! First of all, I would like to thank Madame Samm for a chance to gab about my life as a fabric designer. My name is Monica Lee and I am an illustrator, licensed artist and I design fabrics for Timeless Treasures! I am thrilled to be here today!



Both grandmothers quilted and my mother does beautiful applique work! My grandparents even farmed cotton in West Texas. When I signed the dotted line to design my first cotton quilting collection, I felt as if I could not have been more excited. Cotton! Fabric! Me!? So my guest post today is a bit of a love letter to the women who came before me (and you) who carry on the tradition of loving handiwork. I personally believe that every stitch that is made, every snip that is cut, carries with it an energy and a blessing to the person who eventually uses the work. I know that when I have knit baby blankets, that part of my rhythm in the clicking of the needles to pray blessings over the child. I think my grandmothers and great grandmothers must have done the same. When I relocated to New England, my German great grandmother (at 102 years old) was certain that I would be cold (I was) and that I needed one of her most beloved quilts to stay warm. (Really? I get one of your most treasured quilts?) It is an old quilt made up from scraps of garments and I simply cherish it. It turns out this quilt is magic (who knew? ) It carries so much love that when any family member is sick, sad or even just sleepless all they have to do is crawl under it and everything is better. Even my teenage sons request the “magic” quilt!
I feel like the presence of the women who came before me are in these quilts. All the work, the joy, the laughter, how they broke down barriers for my generation is all wrapped up into this keepsake. So I want to encourage you today, when you are cutting, piecing, stitching remember that you are passing down love. Whether you are more of a traditional quilter, or a modern quilter, we all know that it takes time and dedication to quilt and every moment is worth it. Bless every stitch with a blessing for whomever might come in to contact with your handiwork.


You get the opportunity to pass on what you can do, what only you can bring onto someone else. Doesn’t that make you want to get started on something fresh today?







( ideas on what you can do with this collection)

Here is a quick snapshot of how my collection Now We’re Goin’ Places formed itself in my wee little brain. This fun line came out of my travelin’ past. I used to be international flight attendant (sometimes fun, sometimes not fun) and I created this line using all the means of transportation that you might use once you reach your destination. Oh my, there are so many fun places to go! Then I added the text “now we’re goin’ places” on a whim and suddenly the idea came to me that this would make a good sew up for my niece who was heading off to college. She was really “goin’ places!” I also thought it would be cute for a baby, all packed up for a play date or scooting across the floor “goin’ places!” I even designed a couple of quilts to go with the collection. Here is a (picture) and link to a free quilt pattern. This quilt’s idea was to mimic a gingham pattern, so the piecing is done with simple squares. My first fabric collection, Now We’re Goin’ Places, was about being adventurous and seeing things. My next collection (coming out in Fall 2011) called The Neighborhood, settles into a cozy familiar place, and exudes a feeling of contentment.


Editors note:

  101. Hi, I'm a Wantobe Quilter sponsored by quiltingbydawn.
    I follow at sewWEquilt and MonicaLee.

    Monica, I love your site! The Calico girls are wonderful! Thanks for being a guest speaker. I'm a bit like you when I make something it takes me a while to use it. Always afraid I'll ruin something I worked so hard to create....

    Thanks to the sponsors. This is a wonderful way for Wantobe Quilters to get started quilting.

    I love the magic quilt story. We had a magic blanket, referred to simply as "the blanket" and Lord forbid that more than one of us 4 kids be sick and/or needy at the same time because that little blue blanket with the blue satin edge was the one thing we all needed in said circumstances! It became just a shred of a blanket but much loved anyway.
