Industrial engineer and self-taught quilter, Tina Curran shared her approach to designing quilts, specifically her unique paper-pieced holiday wreath quilt. She utilizes complex paper piecing and fun bright stripes, plaids, dots and other novelty prints to create her own look. She is inspired by Jan Mullen, Yvonne Porcella, and Freddy Moran. A disciplined planner, she makes test blocks to audition fabrics and designs, and creates prototypes designs on her computer. Her message to the group was to be open to making changes as you go.
