A Bold Quilt Room

A husband and wife create a hobby space to spark their creativity.

A Quilter's Paradise

Two modern artists who love and live quilting have a whole room devoted to their passion. Bill Kerr and his wife, Weeks Ringle, design fabrics and create beautiful quilts in a room outfitted to meet all their needs.

Dynamic Designing Duo

Husband and wife team Bill Kerr and Weeks Ringle have built up a successful quilting and fabric design business, FunQuilts. The couple also hosts workshops and camps. Their bright, colorful workshop is a reflection of their artistry.

Organized and Inspirational

In any hobby room, organization is a must. Metal mesh baskets corral fabric while keeping them visible. The long counter serves as a workspace. To keep your creative ideas flowing, include a design board in your hobby area. A wall-to-wall bulletin board is the perfect place to display color swatches, sketches, and inspirational pieces.

Display Your Works

Bill and Weeks display one of their quilts as a wall-hanging. The quilt speaks to their finely honed skills and design expertise as quilters. In your own hobby space, show off your creations. They are a reminder of your accomplishments and can be an inspiration for current projects.

Especially for You

The spacious hobby room is outfitted with sturdy oak tables. The simple tables are dressed up with hand-painted chairs. Adding personal touches will make your hobby space your own.

Space for Everything

Spacious hobby rooms are hard to come by. But if you are adding a hobby space or remodeling to create one, plan carefully. Ensure you have enough space for all of your equipment and adequate work surfaces. Bill and Weeks' projects require a 14-foot-long sewing machine. Furniture is kept far away from the machine, giving the quilter plenty of space to work.

It's a Zoo

Bill and Weeks have brought these blankets to life with wildlife. The animal quilting motifs are a fun finish for their creations.

Beyond Quilts

In addition to quilting, Bill and Weeks have designed more than 100 fabrics. Some are colorful and bright, while others are muted tone-on-tone prints.
