Hello! I’m Laura Strickland. I live in the Midwest on the banks of the Mississippi River. I own and operate Orange Blossom Quilt Design Studio, LLC. I design quilt patterns with a Mid-century Modern / Pop Culture aesthetic. I enjoy competing in quilting competitions and have been juried into the last 3 Cherrywood Challenge exhibit with my quilts traveling internationally for those exhibitions. I often speak virtually and in-person for quilting groups and guilds. I also teach many classes and host retreats annually. I love to introduce new ideas and help people along their own quilting journey. I developed my signature trade-marked technique called Effervescent Applique TM. I have a passion for the preservation of all Women’s Arts and for women helping and mentoring the next generation of female artists.
