What is your quilting style?

My favorite quilts have sampler blocks or star blocks! I love traditional fabrics and children/novelty fabrics. I also like a mixture of traditional and contemporary projects; there are places for both in my home!

How did you get started quilting and/or designing?

I started out crocheting when I was five and learned to cross stitch as I got older. I was introduced to quilting in my early twenties. I’m a very creative person with a million ideas bouncing around in my head, so my designs flow out of that. I took a quilting class and was immediately hooked. Back then, I felt like there was a great need for a quilting store that had a wide selection and attentive service, and Fat Quarter Shop was born. Soon after, I started to feel the need to design great patterns.

Do you have a favourite quilt?

Well it’s a tie between a Bliss quilt I made for Emma and the Children at Play Pinwheel quilt – I just love love them both! Do you notice all of the pink?
