About Blair Stocker

Blair designs modern quilts often using beloved, vintage, and cherished fabrics. Growing up in North Carolina, she learned the artistry of domestic handwork from her maternal grandmother, who did every type of needlework imaginable, except quilting. Her professional career as a textile and clothing designer and merchandiser solidified her love of beautifully made fabric and the power it had to tell stories through the colors, patterns and shapes of seasonal lines. When her first child was born, she turned her focus inward, towards creating a comfortable home and being a mom. But her creativity that was once nourished in her design work was suddenly missing. She found it again when she began cutting beautiful fabric up into little pieces and stitching them back together. Everything about quilts was exciting to her- the colors, patterns, and shapes she missed were all right there.
