So excited to announce the designer today- Lauren from Transient Art. I got to know her a little better this last year, as were roomies at Quilt Market in Houston in the Fall.
Her fabric lines are adorable and so sweet. They are produced by Riley Blake – Penny Rose. Her style is classic, fun and just so cute! They are happy, As is she! She is a laid back gal with lots of talent. Just recently she teamed up with I am Luna Sol and designed an enamel pin- the crow, and has released another fabric line with Riley Blake.
So happy she is a designer with us this year, you’ll love her simple project!!

âœ„ One 4″ x 4″ white fabric
âœ„ One 4″ x 4″ pink floral fabric
âœ„ Two 5½” x 5½” white floral fabric

Tell us about your quilt block for the Scavenger Hunt:
I made this block to be simple and quick to sew together. You can easily change the look by swapping out fabrics of course. I like how it looks both straight and diagonal too.

How did you get your start in sewing?
I started sewing when I was about 8 years old with cross stitching. I did more things like embroidery over the years at times, and went on to do more complex things as a teenager. Such as a lined cape for Halloween. It was definitely more of a background thing I rarely did until I had children. After I got my own sewing machine for Christmas one year (thanks Mom!) I went full force into sewing.
What inspires you?
Everything around me really. I get the most ideas when I’m outside though. I love the plants, animals, weather, that landscape. It really clears my mind and helps me to think. I’m also now inspired with things I can make for around the home. I’m such a homebody, so I like decorating!
Do you have a favorite notion?
Bodkins all the way lol. I don’t need them often but when I need to fish some elastic into a little arm hole on a girls dress or need to put in the drawstring on a bag, it’s my favorite tool.
What’s coming up for you that we can check out~
I’m so excited for June for two things: 1) My 3rd fabric line “Calico Crow” from Riley Blake is shipping out to stores this month!! 2) We’re moving into our first house we just bought, I get my own sewing room, and to sleep in my own bed again. ^_^
Quirky or fun fact about yourself?
I can recite the alphabet backwards with ease. I don’t know how that’ll help me in life though!
