My name is Lila Tueller, and I'm really happy to be featured on the Calico Carriage Quilt Designs Blog!
To introduce myself, I am a stay at home mother of seven children and grandmother to one darling little granddaughter.
I have five of my children living at home, so I can relate to all of you young moms, and you grandma's too!
I am an avid lover of fabric, and have been sewing since I was a young girl. I have a huge collection of fabrics, which is in a constant state of flux. I have been designing things for myself my children and my friends forever, and just recently decided to take it all a step further and landed myself a partnership with Moda fabrics and United Notions doing fabric collections twice annually, as well as patterns to feature those fabrics.
So far it has been more fun than I could have ever imagined!
Although I wouldn't consider myself a traditional quilter, I do enjoy making quilts, which are usually a little on the funky/nontraditional/out of the ordinary side of the spectrum. So far I have only two quilt patterns out, but I plan on making more!
I think what I really love doing is making bags, all sorts of bags. I used to make and sell them at specialty boutiques, and on Ebay. I soon learned that there weren't enough hours in the day to sew for all the people that wanted them; hence the turn to pattern designing.
Of course I still sew them for gifts and special requests, and for myself! But I love coming up with new bag ideas, and I'm sure I will continue doing that for a long time!
I hope you will enjoy sewing with my new line of fabric coming out in February:
It is a fun and fllrty mix of spring brights and pastels, and will be great for many of your spring and summer sewing projects. Here's a little sneak peek!
Thanks for reading, and keep sewing!
