Blair is a quiltmaker, craft book author, artist, DIY’er risk taker, a teacher, thrift store junkie, and detail-obsessed hand maker, and creator behind Wise Craft Handmade. Inspired by off-beat color combinations, thrifted fabrics, vintage photographs, the beautiful simplicity of Japanese “Zakka”, nature, and, occasionally, a little glitter, she combines these materials in her work. Creating unique, approachable DIY projects, original quilts, quilt-inspired artwork, and original quilt patterns, all produced under the Wise Craft Handmade brand. Her first book, Wise Craft: Turning Thrift Store Finds, Scraps of Fabric, and Natural Objects into Stuff You Love, was published by Running Press in March 2014.
