If you’re an avid fan of modern quilting, you’ve probably double tapped on your fair share of photos taken by Suzy Williams, the modern quilter, textile designer and all-around bad-ass babe behind Suzy Quilts. We were thrilled when Suzy said she would be happy to create a custom quilt just for the Spoonflower community and the resulting pattern, Twisted Ribbons, feels fresh and unique, thanks to the understated linear work and the neutral color palette she chose featuring bohemian designs from a much-loved Spoonflower designer, holli_zollinger. Before you get started on your own version of Twisted Ribbons, be sure to read Suzy’s top three tips for picking out your fabrics.
