Our Designers - Signature Collection Back

Signature Collection

The Blank Quilting Signature Collection is comprised of designs conceived and created by Blank Quilting Creative Director Diana Mancini and Emily Tsangarakis. These designs come from many inspirational sources, from world travel to children, architecture and nature. Extracting visual ideas from life experience, envisioning them as designs, and imprinting them on fabric is the signature goal of this collection, which makes up much of the vast library of Blank Quilting.

Diana's Inspiration for her Lisbon Collection

Drenched in seaside sunlight, this harbor town boasts an exotic and diverse history. Celtic, Gaulic and Moorish influences are but a few which helped to weave the rich cultural brocade that is Lisbon. Inspired by this city, this collection features an exciting mix of varied sized florals and goemetrics. Embrace the historic energy of this bustling metropolis as you design your new quilt, uniting floral delight with bold geometry. Mix and match these prints in your new quilt masterpiece and create your own Iberian dream.

About Emily


I was born and raised in Queens New York. As a child I loved to draw and paint. I dream t of being an artist.

I received my degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology in Illustration. With my drawing skills, passion for color and love for detail I became drawn to Textile and Surface design. I began my career 15 years ago starting in the Apparel Industry, then to the Home Furnishing Industry and now the Quilting Industry where I found my niche for design and color.

My Home Furnishing experience has contributed a lot to my fabric designing career. I found that designing a quilting group is a lot like designing a bedding ensemble. You need to know what patterns compliment other patterns and the coloring is the key to making it work. My inspiration comes from almost anything. I am constantly thinking of new ideas from everything surrounding me.

Aside from being a designer for Blank Quilting Signature Design Collection you can find me in my free time painting children's murals where I get to be creative in my own little fantasy world.
