HI, I'M CHRISTEN.
IT IS SO NICE TO MEET YOU.
I am a lover of modern quilting and creativity. I'm actually really obsessed with it all. I love creating the life that I LOVE living. - I'm also the founder of ISeeStarsQuilting.com
I have a degree in Communication Design. I started my career as a graphic designer with a focus on marketing. I have worked as a freelance design consultant for years...
So I know a thing or two about the importance of productivity, design and how to achieve what is pleasing to the eye.
"Create something beautiful every single day."
That is my motto... or life's mission... however you choose to view it. I believe beauty can come in all kinds of ways. Giant projects, small moments, and sparks of creativity - all of it adds up.
I started quilting when my kids were little. The short story is that when you have little ones around, you can't set up your dining room as an expressive art/sculpture studio - things happen. Paint is really really hard to get out of tile grout
and even harder to get out of a squirming toddler's hair.
I am a self-taught quilter. I didn't grow up watching other women in my family sew or have any textile skills whatsoever. I pieced together my quilting knowledge (no pun intended) one step at a time.
Want to know the number one thing that I learned? You shouldn't go at it alone. - Quilting is a skill that brings people together. It invites long chats and deep friendships. It encourages learning, discovering, teaching, and more conversation.
I created ISeeStarsQuilting to develop an online community for modern quilters to gather, share and create beautiful things together. As I learn new skills and test out theories and ideas, I share my findings and tutorials with you.
To date, I am so proud to have helped thousands of quilters and creatives deepen their understanding of the quilting world and grow their inspiration from a small spark to a roaring flame.
They're creating breathtaking beautiful projects, with great confidence - doing what they love and on their own terms.
That is what ISeeStarsQuilting and The Stitch Community are all about.
So, whether you have yet to start on your first quilt or you've lost count of how many you've worked on throughout your life... you are welcome here.
By joining this community and furthering your education and skills you are absorbing knowledge to share with the next quilter (or quilter to be) that crosses your path.
I sincerely wish that you embrace your creativity and your wildest dreams. 🥰
