Our parents give us a lot as we grow up – DNA, habits, opportunities. What a joy it must be for them to see us develop and pursue shared interests. How about when you learn from their passions and translate them into modern, trendy arts? That's what Jessie Goff of Lunita Handmade has done with quilting. She grew up watching her mother make many things and has tried her hand at all kinds of crafts. She now focuses on sewn goods, from quilts to oven mitts to baby bibs and lots of things in between. What these all have in common is the perfect mix of style and function. Jessie picks out fabrics in lovely colors and fun patterns. In fact, she often finds inspiration in the textiles she uses for her work, which you can see in her quilt motifs especially. With beautiful fabric in hand, Jessie then pieces together items that are useful around the home while cooking, relaxing, caring for your baby. She uses traditional quilting techniques for the most part with a modern flair. Her designs are often a mix of old and new. For example, she's translated well known quilt patterns into trendy ombre variations, fitting for today's design sensibility. Of course, all of her goodies are made with care by hand which is refreshing amongst all of the mass manufacturing we see. What home wouldn't be brighter with a colorful quilt or a quilted oven mitt? What baby doesn't deserve lovingly made bibs and burp cloths? You can find Jessie at various art events and pop ups around Austin. When you do, be sure to check out the new items she's working on. It may be goodies for your pets or new ideas to help you treat yourself like her lavender eye pillows. Come for the fabulous fabrics and buy for the one-of-a-kind craftsmanship!
