Elise and Emilie are sisters who quilt who also happen to be popular Instagram quilters.
In fact, it was seeing quilts on Instagram that got them interested in quilting in the first place. They saw different quilt posts and began following quilters and fiber artists who inspired them to begin making their own creations.
Two years ago, they made their first quilts. It was part of a Pat Bravo Quilt Hop, using her “Heartland Collection.”
Knowing that Pat likes to promote sewists, Elise and Emilie reached out to Pat and sent her photos of their finished quilts from the blog hop. They offered to promote and blog about Pat’s fabric line. That led to the sisters promoting other fabric lines on their Instagram account. Elise admits that they love to “hoard fabrics and create new projects.”
Lots of designers send their fabrics to these Instagram quilters and allow Elise and Emilie to come up with ways to showcase the new fabrics. Some of the fabric lines the sisters have experimented with include:
Sassafrass Lane’s first collection, Foundation, by Wyndham Fabrics. Each of the 30 fabrics are full of white hand drawn designs on rich bold colors.
Minkie Kim, a designer for Riley Blake Designs.
Art Gallery Fabrics, who features Pat Bravo’s designs , regularly send Elise and Emilie some of their other new fabric releases.
