Artist Interview with Jessica Schneidereit of Squared Up

Why do you craft/make? How did you learn?

Rag quilts from Squared Up are lovingly made in my home from designer samples and remnants. No bolts of fabric are ever harmed in the making of these one-of-a-kind creations.

It’s a fun process to find some adorable or classy or kitschy or just plain gorgeous fabric and then patiently wait until it’s perfect partners show up. Really cool designer samples, leftover fabric from my neighbor, some jeans that had the nerve to shrink, a never used remnant relegated to the thrift store – as long as it’s either cute or beautiful (or both) it has a new forever home.

What is your favorite product or piece you’ve made lately?

I’m working on a very vibrant red, black and white baby quilt right now, hope to have it ready for Holiday Fair.

What sorts of things are inspiring you right now? Where do you look for inspiration?

Whatever jumps out at me from my closet of fabric.

Are you bringing/selling anything special at the craft fair?

Care to direct us to any photos we can share?

I have some quilts posted on my etsy shop, squaredup. I’m working on some more for the fair!

Favorite season?

Winter is my favorite time of year. I can’t get enough rain. Love the stuff.
