The last two decades have been quite the ride for quilter, artist, and author Sherri Lynn Wood, who we were delighted to host last weekend in the Greenhouse, and we just had to get the full story! From selling quilts at a farmer's market less than 20 miles from Spoonflower's Durham HQ to putting the finshing touches on the manuscript for her first book, The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters, Sherri shares her inspiration, creative process, and some of the steps along the way to her brilliant quilting career in this brief interview.
Sherri Lynn Wood is busy these days, to say the least! After a marathon writing session to finish a draft of her first book, The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters, due out next spring through STC Craft, she jetted from her current home in Oakland, CA, all the way to Durham, NC, for an east coast "tour" of teaching gigs that kicked off with an amazing lecture and workshop set right here in the Spoonflower Greenhouse. We were beyond excited to host Sherri Lynn Wood back in the area where her quilting journey began, and we couldn't help asking a few questions–7 to be exact–about the inspiring steps (and quilts) along the way!
Spoonflower co-founder Stephen Fraser and Sherri show off her Mod-Mood Quilt after a tour of our offices.
