Kate Spain has carried a sketchbook since she was a child. She eventually drew her way to the Rhode Island School of Design where she earned a BFA in Graphic Design. It was there that she began to refine her visual voice through drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, glassblowing, and graphic art. Since her school days, she has worked to develop and expand her unique style through experimentation, travel, and by always keeping her sense of wonder. Kate’s designs have been featured on products at Crate and Barrel, Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom, Frontgate, Target, and other leading retailers. Her designs can be found on many home décor items including rugs, pillows, kitchen textiles, tableware, and fabric.
“I am so happy to create collections exclusively for Moda and to share them with you and other quilters and crafters around the world. I’m an avid gardener and much of my inspiration can be found in Nature – an unlikely color combination that lures me in, a simple flower that I’d never looked at so closely before, random patterns like sandpiper tracks, fern fronds, willow buds. In the studio, I try to translate these natural inspirations into designs. No matter where I begin my design process, I always end up in a new place. I hope you enjoy where your creativity and wonder take you! They’re all yours.”
