Welcome to Quilt Heart
Quilt Heart is a place for quilters and lovers of quilts. A place to talk about our fabric loves and ignite our creative fantasies.
I love spending time making beautiful things—quilting, sewing, stitching, and crafting. I’m drawn good design, colors, beautiful material and want to feel inspired. I enjoy the artistry and process of making quilts, and I share the quilts I make with others as an expression of kindness.
I believe that quilting is a joyful, inspired act of love.
More about me…
I’m Laura Damkoehler, a quilter, crafter, SF-city-dweller, doting cat mom, and generally nice person. I recently quit my job to pursue my love of all things quilty. This blog is my beginning…(read my full story in my first ever blog post: Why I Quit my Job to be a Full-time Quilter)
I’m totally in love with the craft of quilting. The beautiful creations of unassuming generations of women. The time I get to spend with my mom sewing together. I love the process of making something new, kitties getting all up in my business, and learning new tricks and overcoming the hard parts. I love going to shows and shops every chance I get, and I love reading and watching endless magazines, books, blogs, and online videos full of inspiring ideas and people make beautiful things.
So I recently quit my job to make quilting my permanent adventure. I’m officially on my quest. I know there will be stress, and failures (potentially colossal ones), and sleepless nights. I don’t know if I’ll make it. I just know I have to try. I’m a speck of star stuff-reaching out for creativity, joy, life, and love in quilting.
Tell me what you think…
I’m just getting started and so I’m dying to hear from you. Tell me what you love about quilting, or just what you want to see more of at Quilt Heart.
