THE INTERVIEW
What first inspired you to start sewing?
I’ve always had a strong internal motivation to make things. When I was in elementary school, I taught myself how to sew by hand using a book I bought with my allowance. I didn’t use a sewing machine until I was a junior in college. I had just gotten my first apartment and wanted to make some inexpensive curtains and pillows to decorate with.

What is your most beloved project finish and why?
My favorites are constantly changing, but right now, I’m in awe of of my Satellite Medallion quilt. It took a lot of energy to get it made in time for the Luna Sol look book. I don’t think I’ve ever put so much effort into the quilting process! When it was done, I knew it had to be on the cover of the look book.

When did you first start working as an illustrator? 
I’ve been drawing since I could hold a pencil.

How did you first connect with Windham Fabrics and what have you most loved about working through the collection design process? 
I met my fabric design idol, Heather Ross, at Quilt Con 2015 and she introduced me to the Windham family! I can’t even describe how wonderful they are to work with. I really enjoy the dialogue we have regarding putting the collection together. They’ve helped spark positive ideas and changes that I wouldn’t have come up with on my own.

What do you love most about Aurifil threads?
The color selection. I love pulling out my Aurifil color card and being able to find the perfect shade for my project. I’ve never been let down!

Do you have any advice for new designers out there?
Don’t let yourself be intimidated. Never limit yourself. Embrace failure.

  1. This collection is absolutely beautiful! I would probably start with making a quilt and pillow shams for my spare room!

  2. Awesome colors! My granddaughter and I would create a quilt for her or a set of placemats for her mom. I would love to see her eyes and mouth pop open as she saw these for the first time! She drools at color just like I do.

  3. Really love the colors here. Our urban backyard has squirrels, raccoons, deer, birds and now a family of bunnies! So I’d include the rabbit prints in the story/eye spy quilts I’m making. I’d use the rest for a quilt for my very special sister who has been such a support to me. She loves these colors.

  4. I love Felice’s debut collection. Ever since I saw her experimenting with patterns on Instagram, I have enjoyed her sense of color and her love of adorable. My favorite print of course are those moon bunnies! Her fabrics are fun and cheerful, and just broadcast ‘Play with Me!’ So how can I resist? I’m definitely buying bunny yardage! Will be interested to see what Felice cooks up next.

    ps, that round moonbunny purse is THE CUTEST, when does that free pattern go live, because it’s so mine!💖🌙🐰🌙💖

  5. I’ve always wanted to make a table cloth quilt; these colors and patterns would be soooo perfect!!! Gorgeous!

  6. I LOVE color, so I am very drawn to your designs and the colors you use! I’m so glad I found you through the Aurifil blog. I’ve clicked to follow you via each of the social media sites. And, I’m ordering your fabric today. Looking through your fabric and the threads you chose has my head swirling with which quilt I have in my sketchbook I want to make first with them. Thank you for sharing your amazing talent!

  7. HOW GORGEOUS! I’D MAKE A NEW QUILT FOR SURE! MAYBE PILLOW COVERS TOO! THANK YOU FELICE+ #AURIFILTHREADS + #WINDHAM FABRICS!

  8. What gorgeous colors! I’m not sure what I’d make with them should I win, but it will probably be a small quilt. Thanks for a great giveaway.

  9. Wonderful fabric — love at first sight for me. I can visualize a wall hanging for my sewing
    room. Thank you for featuring the artist and fabrics— and the opportunity to win such
    a great giveaway.

  10. These are gorgeous! I would love to make a quilt with these fabrics. I recently bought a paper pieced New York Beauty style pattern that I think these would be beautiful in!

  11. I love, love, love the bright, happy colors of Luna Sol! It would be wonderful to make a child’s quilt with this fabric – and – the matching Aurifil threads!

  12. Ooooh! I would Loooove to make the Quilt like Felice Regina made!!! It is Gorgeous!!!

    Thank you for the interview & for chance to win your Give-a-way too!😀

    • Oh, and I would make a wall hanging with these fabrics and thread that I could put in my main work area to brighten things up and help me stay motivated!

  13. I would absolutely get the pattern and make the quilt Felice Regina made. It is SO beautiful, love the colours and also the size!

  14. I love the medallion quilt, but I don’t think I’m quite there yet– but the colorblocked one with diagonal stripes–yes please! These colors are amazing!

  15. These colors are stunning. So out of my normal range, and in a color group I’d love to work with. I keep buying what I consider to be bright, but when I get it home and really look at it, it is toned down. This bundle would put me over that hump. Such gorgeous threads and fabrics.

  16. What a super talented lady. Thank you for giving us more information about her. I love the bright colors and the enthusiasm.

  17. I’m always short on blues in my stash, which is weird since I love to make sea-themed projects, but I have just recently found the love for the combinations of purple, yellow and orange, so I think I’d most likely make myself a new bag, since I have a new purple jacket and need a bag to match😉
    Thanks for the chance to win!

  18. What gorgeous fabrics! I would make a lap quilt to cuddle up with on the porch on cold mornings. The bright colors and a cup of coffee would be the perfect start to the day. .

  19. Love the yellow! I think a summer quilt to use on picnics would be my first project from this line. It looks so fresh, and the intensity of the colors goes perfectly with our extreme heat and humidity.

  20. I love the medallion quilt. I think it’s fun to use blocks for borders, and plan to make one similar.

  21. The colors are wonderful. My idea of quilt colors bright and stunning so for sure I would make a quilt. Hope I win the bundle but if not I will buy a bunch and make a quilt.

  22. We have a niece heading to college this fall, and I think she would adore a dorm quilt made from these vibrant colors.

  23. I would love to make a Goose Chase quilt with the bundle. It’s so bright and cheerful! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  24. That medallion quilt is wonderful! I’d make one of my own if I was the lucky winner! Thanks for the chance!

  25. I would love to make and keep the quilt on the thread box label, with diagonals. Her colors are so saturated and lovely!

  26. I would make a quilt for my grand daughter! She ove bright colors like I do! Love your fabric and thread collections!

  27. Luna Sol speaks SUNSETs to me…beautiful south west sunsets.
    I’d love to have a wall hanging in sunrise or sunsets in my sewing space, bedroom and entry way in my home. Thank you Felice for such a beautiful collection. The Medallion quilt is stunning so say the least.
    Breathtaking!!

  28. I fell in love with your new fabric…. Felice
    One (1) because my husband lives taking photographs of sunrises and sunsets, and two (2) because when my daughter was born, she was made a bunny, We just called bunny until she could name her ” the bunny” for her self, of which she named Molly. Molly stayed with her for ever, in everything, even a near death sickness… And today at age 26 she still has ” Molly on her bed… So this fabric brought many precious memories back to me…..
    And if I got your bundle I would make her a beautiful quilt, with an applique of Molly in the middle! Thank you!!💜
