  • Quilts available at Levis NY, Meatpacking District

     

    The stars aligned and a dream team came alive. 

    My quilts were destine for some special packaging and tags but it took a while for them to reveal what it would be. Ryan Rhodes & Renee Fernandez developed the graphics, and blue eyed, dirt bike riding, Kelly DeWitt handcrafted the cedar boxes. We all agree that it's a perfect marriage of materials and minds coming together. I would also like to acknowledge the wonderful women that have been helping me speed up the hand quilting process, the only way to make that possible is with many hands working together. So a big thank you to Monica Loring, Mercedes Montes, and Juliet Gamarci. 

    The three quilts below (front & back) are the first of the series that I am designing and making for Levis. This week I sent these quilts to the Levis Store in New York located at 414 W. 14th St. in the Meatpacking District.  I was told they would be available for sale this Friday! If your in the area you should visit this unique Levis Shop. Made Here are special Levis stores that deliver a bespoke interpretation of the Levi’s brand while respecting the non-mainstream nature of the surrounding area and community
