Guest on The Creativity Project

Kim Soper of Leland Ave Studios is a good quilty friend of mine and an absolutely, jaw-droppingly fantastic quilter (for example, have you seen her People's Choice and 1st Place Improvisation winning Lincoln quilt from QuiltCon 2017?). Fun fact: Kim was the first person to hire me for a guild lecture back in 2015 (for the Long Island Modern Quilt Guild!). It was such a thrill to finally meet her in person then and also to hang out with her at QuiltCon.

Kim just launched a year-long study of quilters called The Creativity Project, and I'm thrilled to be Week 2's guest! In the interview, I talk about (amongst other things) where my creativity grew from, what's it's like to work in a traditionally domestic medium (and being a prolific quilter under 30 - which I'd like to unpack more at some point), and how my husband and I work together on quilting.

I hope you enjoy the interview and that you'll tune in for the weeks ahead! Also, consider participating by taking The Creativity Project Survey!


  1. I am very excited about the project and loved reading your interview. I'm looking forward to more of your thoughts and Kim's project! :)

  2. Thanks, Jess, for such a kind post! I'm so happy that we've connected! Thanks so much for being a part of the Project! I'm so happy to call you a friend!

  3. Jumping over there right now! :)


Let's start a conversation! I love comments and I'd be happy to reply to all who have an email address accessible. Thanks for commenting!
