featured shop: Raven Brooke Studios

I am so excited to begin featuring shops on the blog! In the past year I have been shopping small businesses more and can't wait for you to see what I love most about them.

Today I want to introduce you to a woman I know who is so sweet, talented and also married to my brother ;). Emily recently opened her doors and stepped out to do something she truly loves doing- creating art. Her current obsession is fabric. She has fallen in love with the method of quilting and the time & artistry that goes into making one in so many different ways.

I am updating the boy's room this winter with new themes plus toddler beds and Emily made these gorgeous quilts that perfectly match each boy and their personality. 

Ben is getting the space and astronauts theme and Ian is getting the little critters theme. It's perfect and it also will be easy to pick colors that match with each one for the wall decor. Each quilt is 42x34 and the perfect size for the boy's new toddler beds! 

These quilts are the perfect gift for Christmas or a Birthday. They are super soft and I can't stop looking at them because I know the boys will be so excited when they see them!
I love the simplicity and cute patterns that are featured in each one. They each have a different, unique and eye catching pattern that isn't featured anywhere else. Even the backs are beautiful by themselves too. 

Get to know the Shop Owner: 

Creating isn't just a business for me- it's a passion. It's what I think about in my spare time, because well, I just like making things. Fall of 2012 I picked up a second part time job out of necessity at a quilting boutique, that is when I learned how to sew and quilt. 
As someone who went to school for illustration and design this new medium opened up a whole new world of possibilities! I am working on a few fine art fabric pieces but most of the time I have is devoted to making quilts. 
There is something about the process of cutting apart fabric and sewing it back together to make something new that completely fascinates me! 

I also especially love making children's quilts! On one side are bright fun colors and patterns, and for the backing of children's quilts I use flannel, to make it soft, warm and snuggly! 

I do a variety of other things, design, illustration, photography, and these are all in the process of being prepared for my Etsy store!

I love doing custom orders, so if you are curious about a quilt, or something else entirely just email me with the question! ravenbrookestudios(at)gmail(dot)com.
