Artist Profile: Linda Frost

Linda Frost
Lawrence, Kansas

1.  Describe your signature style in 5 words:
Hope this makes someone smile.

2.  Do you ever work in another medium and, if so, what is it and what appeals to you about it? I also like to crochet, which is another medium that lends itself to using bits and scraps.

3.  What's coming up for you in your artistic world? I just had my second book "Robots in Space!" published and I am considering whether or not to write a third quilt book.

4.  Do you have any studio rituals? When I enter my studio I try to get the sewing machine going as fast as possible. Otherwise I spend too much time just dithering.

5.  Who has inspired you on your artistic journey? The classes I took with Nancy Crow, Ruth McDowell, Ann Johnston and Jane Dunnewold gave me the tools to dye and piece just about anything.

6.  What are the 5 essential things in your studio that you cannot live without? Sewing machine, rotary cutter, design wall, freezer paper, thread/fabric

7.  What is on your design table right now? Donation quilts for a local Headstart preschool class.

8.  How do you juggle your artistic life, family, friends, etc?  Time needed for artistic efforts nearly always conflicts with family life. My only hope is that when I drop a ball it does not roll too far away.

9.  Do you have any studio companions (human or otherwise)? I have three Amazon parrots and one conure, but they live in a sunroom with a view. No self respecting parrot would spend time in a basement studio that is also known as the sewing dungeon.

10.  What was the biggest challenge in creating your piece for Reflections? Sewing to a set size is a challenge for me. Most of my quilts want to be the size they want to be and are resistant to my size suggestions.
