Jennifer Raish makes one-of-a-kind quilts that mix materials and techniques with a modern improvised quilting style. She plays with the conventional 'rules' of sewing and quilt making, experimenting with edges - making quilts with unconventional borders, leaving fabric edges raw in the patchwork, and incorporating pretty selvedges. She also plays with fabric combinations, bringing together different textures, prints, and weights, as well as using techniques such as visible mending, embroidery, and pin-tucks to bring another layer of visual interest. Her aesthetic is eclectic; some quilts have minimalist qualities and others are vibrant and busy, while traditional quilt block patterns, such as ying geese, half square triangles, and courthouse steps are sometimes given a place within her freer designs.
