About Laura Strickland

Laura Strickland

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.

If you would like to keep in touch you can subscribe to my blog or my website. I’d love for you to follow me on Facebook at or on Instagram @orangeblossomquilt.
