I'm Laura, and Sonic Stitches is my online quilting home. By day, I work as a museum curator specializing in textiles, and I spend my nights making modern quilts. I'm a new quilter, devouring quilting information, techniques, and knowledge as quickly as I can. I started quilting in late 2014 and it has a become my favorite crafty hobby.
I have been sewing for most of my life, but I was always intimidated by quilting. I made my first quilt during the grieving process after my mother passed away when I searched for a more complex project than I was used to in order to better occupy my mind. Quilting literally became my art therapy. I like to think my quilts are a way to honor her memory, especially since she was so proud of her college degree in textile science.
Since making my first quilt, I learned about the pattern makers and fabric designers I liked and started to develop my own personal style. This year, I've started a project called Vinyl Quilts - music inspired quilts that are the size of LP covers. Follow along as I create more Vinyl Quilts, expand my personal quilting, and make more quilts by the designers I love!
