Quilt Inspiration from Michael and Raychel

Callie

This week we were lucky enough for TWO quilt show-and-tells from two of our favorite people, Michael and Raychel.

Michael Yancey is one of CityCraft's very best friends. He even came in while we were in the moving process and helped us count inventory. Though quilting just a few years, Michael's work is mind-blowing. A graphic designer by trade, he designs all of his own quilt patterns and makes use of richly-toned solids to create modern quilts with a distinctly heritage vibe. We love that Michael has found and fully embraces a very distinct "quilt voice". This is his latest creation. All paper-pieced, with intricate free-motion quilting, and hand binding. Heaven.

Raychel Yearsley is a CityCraft team member and an SMU graduate student working towards her Masters in Counseling with a specialty in play therapy. A longtime fan of designer Nani Iro, Raychel fell in love with the subtle, tone-on-tone Pon Pocho double-gauze and designed this simple yet handsome lap quilt with voile prints from the Cloud9 Fabrics Palos Verdes collection. The quilt used 2.5 yards of Pon Pocho and 1/2 yards of each of the Palos Verdes prints. The yardage was enough to create a pieced-style binding as well. (I imagine this quilt would taste like a delicate macaron from Ladureé in Paris.)
