Iron Crafter Feature – Wendy Sheridan

What is your name?

Wendy Sheridan (Quiltilicioua)

Where do you live?

Rahway. New Jersey

What kind of crafts do you do?

LOL. It’s almost easier to list the crafts that I don’t do… These days, I’ve been really concentrating on my quilting. I also knit and play with beads, and in the past have done weaving, polymer clay work, paper crafts, origami, stained glass, and simple woodworking. I also like to do more “traditional” art – pen and ink, watercolor and acrylic painting – and I do a fair amount of pixel wrangling with Adobe Illustrator and PhotoShop.. I have a house full of supplies and a brain full of ideas – I only need the time to get things made.

Where do you get your inspiration?

Absolutely everywhere: Browsing blogs and photo collections online, art galleries and museums, the natural world, my pets, my daughter and her friends, a scrap of music, a flavor…

What new crafts or techniques would you like to learn?

Woodcarving and making a life-sized totem pole is on my crafting “bucket list.” For the immediate future, I want to learn curved fabric piecing techniques to make pieced art quilts instead of resorting to applique, as well as refining my machine quilting skills. I want to play more with fabric design and have some fabric printed at Spoonflower, I would also like to do something with my daughter’s Barbie collection that she’s outgrown. but I’m not sure what, yet.

Do you have a blog and/or Esty store?

etsy store (with nothing in it at the moment):

Anything else you’d like to tell us about yourself?

I am starting to produce my own quilt patterns for sale on my website. I will be exhibiting some of my quilts at Sharing the Quilts XXVIII and the Garden State Quilters’ Quilt Show “Then & Now”. I will also be teaching a quilt workshop at Costume Con 29 in April.

    • Quilting is definitely one of the crafts I want to get into, not that I need another craft! It's wonderful that you are trying to sell your quilt patterns.
