Meet Erin Nichole of Mija Handmade. Erin is a Latina quilter and pattern designer. She will be the featured designer in the membership starting September 1, 2022.
BIO: “I’m Erin Nichole, the head, heart and hands behind Mija Handmade. In Spanish, mija means “my daughter”. All of my sewing is a love letter to my mother, the first woman to call me mija.
On any given day, I’m probably designing, sewing or wrapped in a quilt. I don’t have any formal art or design education, but I don’t think those things are necessary for exploring creative design. Most of my design inspiration comes from found compositions, like you’d find in building architecture, fences or stairways. I love combining strong lines with bright colors. I hope you find a little bit of beauty in my quilts, and can picture them living happily in your home!”
