About Leah

Picture of Leah DayMy name is Leah Day to start with. I’m a quilter, crafter, L’Bri skin care consultant, wife, mom, yoga nut, and all around fun person!

I’m an internet marketer as well, and I must say I have a very busy life, but I still manage to find time for myself, my art, and (hopefully!) this blog.

Many things inspire my quilts. I’m still in total awe and wonder over the birth of my son James. It was an amazing experience that I still struggle to portray in my quilts. Capturing that day and time in my life is very essential to me, but also quite difficult.

I use a lot of symbolism in my quilts and have also started branching away from 2-D flat surfaces. I’m experimenting with folded fabric, yarn, and beads on the surface of my quilts. More than anything I want people to want to touch the surface and feel the textures in the fabric.

And this isn’t to say that I don’t sit down and piece a traditional 9 patch every once and awhile. It’s good to have a wide range of talents and I certainly don’t create art quilts just because I can’t piece correctly. Falling back to traditional patterns can be very relaxing and great ways to make simple, inexpensive gifts.

You can also check out my business website at www.leahday.com. It’s called Leah Day Online and it’s a resource for L’Bri products and information on the best skin care line man ever made: L’Bri Pure n’ Natural. (Yes, I am going to plug that to death cause it’s such great stuff!)

You can also check out www.daystyledesigns.com and see my gallery and patterns for sale. I’m always updating with new things so check it often to see if I’ve got something you like!

Have a great day!

  3. Hi Mary and Karen,
    Thanks for the nice comments. I’m Chet Day’s daughter-in-law. You can also check out my blog for women at http://www.leahday.wordpress.com. Quilting is great fun, but I’m never sure if I can explain it well enough in words.

    My little boy James certainly is grow up fast. He’s cutting his second tooth today and on days like these I just can’t wait for him to be 15, quite and moody!

    Thanks for ya’lls enthusiasm! You both certainly made my day!
