My name is Ellen Luckett Baker and I started this blog five years ago. I live with my husband and two girls in Atlanta. In my pre-kids life I worked as a floral designer, museum educator and non-profit fundraiser. I hold a B.A. in Art History and a Master’s of Public Administration with a focus in Non-Profit Management.
I have increasingly begun to appreciate the value of handmade items in our mass-produced world. So now I love to sew little clothes for my girls, make quilts, or work on any crafty project that can teach me something new. I hope you can find some crafty inspiration here.
I have designed two fabric collections. The first, Quilt Blocks, was designed for Moda Fabrics. My current collection, Stamped, was produced by the Japanese company Kokka, available in the U.S. from Seven Islands Fabric.
You can also find the holiday craft column that I wrote each month for several years over on AlphaMom.
My projects are featured in the following publications:
One Yard Wonders from Storey Publishing, edited by Rebecca Yaker and Patricia Hoskins.
Fa La La La Felt from Lark Books, edited by Amanda Carestio.
Stash Happy Felt from Lark Books, edited by Amanda Carestio.
Modern Blocks from Stash Books, edited by Susanne Woods.
Heart Felt Holidays from Lark Books, edited by Amanda Carestio and Kathy Sheldon.
