Meet the Maker: Mata Quilts
A life changing year living in Kutch, India was the inspiration behind Mata Quilts. Overwhelmed by the textiles, the colors, the techniques and the people she met, American born Lindsay Carone wanted a way to not only share these fabrics with the world, but to support the artisans who had given her so much of their time and affection during her stay.
It seems like your time in India deeply affected you and gave you real purpose. What it was about this experience that inspired you so much?
Was there anyone you met there that really inspired you?
How did you first get hooked on the art of making? Was it always a childhood hobby?
How do you decide on the design of a piece, or does it develop through the making process?
We obviously love your indigo pieces – what pieces are your favorites?
How do you source your fabrics?
What’s next for Mata Quilts?
Other than that, what’s next is a great question. I’ve been working on new block print designs and I’m itching to get started with them. I hope to be able to return to India soon and pick up where I left off. I’m hoping that’s sooner than later!
