Kellie Willey – Miniature quilts
Welcome to my world of Miniature Quilting! I love quilting and feel fortunate that I can share my craft with so many other people No matter where I travel, I know I can find a friend at a local Quilt Shop or Quild. There is always something new and exciting to learn in quilting and I can’t imagine ever running out of ideas for all the miniature quilts I want to make.
Marge Tucker – Modern Log Cabin
The first quilt I made, over twenty-five years ago, was for friends expecting their first child. “At that time, I didn’t know that quilting would become my passion and now my profession. I feel so fortunate to be able to share and continue the tradition of quilting with my students. I started with traditional pieced quilts but am now focused on abstract improvisational design in my work.
Sarah Goer – Scrappy Squares
I love bold color, geometric designs, and inspiring others in their creativity. I am a quilter and bloger, as a former math teacher, I enjoy the geometry and the math of quilting, and I love helping others learn and practice a new skill.
I’ve been passionate about many things in life: math, dance, graphic design, photography, technology, and teaching to name a few. In recent years as I started designing quilts, I found that the majority of my passions and experiences connect well to the skills required to design and create quilt patterns. For my designs and techniques that are less about following a precise pattern, I’ve developed workshops to share my techniques with others.
