Latifah Saafir, we ♥ you!

Last week we hosted modern quilter, Latifah Saafir for the Front Range Modern Quilt Guild. Latifah is a founding member of the Modern Quilt Guild, and an inspiring and accomplished quilter. She lectured on "Being True to your Inner Artist" and brought a suitcase full of her quilts to show us. It was amazing.

We are blown away by her unique quilting style and love her bold, graphic designs. Latifah is fond of using bias tape to create curved patterns. Her attention to detail is impeccable and these quilts were all impressive both in technique and style. Latifah gave us a lot to think about in terms of finding inspiration, process and her own journey to becoming a quilter. We left feeling so excited about quilting and the modern quilt movement. We hope these photos of Latifah's quilts are as inspiring to you as they were to us!
