Miranda Stewart in Minneapolis for Spring Quilt Market

Marinda Stewart was one of the ladies I met at my first Quilt Market.  You may recall this post

While walking through the Windham Fabrics booth I saw the quilt below.  It grabbed my attention immediately and I walked right up to it.  I was very surprised when I saw the label below the quilt. (pictured below)  
These flowers just literally jumped off of the quilt.  Below you can see the dimension a little better.

You know I would jump at the chance to take a class with Marinda Stewart to learn to make a "Flower Vase" quilt.  I think it is just beautiful.  The fabrics are from The Gee's Bend Collection

In  the Michael Miller Fabrics booth here were more Marinda Stewart quilts.  Talk about incredible!!!
I thought Marinda's Punchneedle book was/is incredible.... and now there are these amazing quilts too.  I'm going to have to ask here what else she does. 
I'm hoping to see more of Marinda's work in Houston at the end of October.  I'm guessing after these incredible designs the fabric companies will be beating down her door to do more.  You know they won't be at my door!!!  LOL.  If they do come to my door, all they will be asking for is their semi-truck of fabric back that I hijacked :)

Wicked Smiles,


  1. What gorgeous work of Marinda's! Thanks for telling us about her.

  2. Wow, what amazing quilts. I would love to see them up close and personal. You want to put me in your luggage and take me to market with you?

  3. Her work is amazing, so beautiful and the color choices really make the pieces.


  4. Aaah, aaah, aah. While I couldn't make it to Quilt Market I'm really awestruck of what happened, and appreciate your insights.

    I've been dreaming of making a 3D floral arrangement quilt. I too would love to take a class with Marinda Stewart. Her quilt is amazing.

    Thanks so much for sharing and inspiring.


  5. I wish I was able to retain all this informaiton that you and Sew Cal give out...I enjoy reading it and seeing the wonderful works of art.

  6. Beautiful quilts! It was great to meet your Mom the other evening, lots of fun and yummy cupcakes!
