I’m Rebecca and I teach people how to design and make quilts.
I’m most known by the colorful and geometric quilts I create. There’s just something about color and fabric that stirs my need to make and create. I love watching color and pattern come together in new and striking ways. Creating with fabric and color is somehow soothing and energizing at the same time.
You might recognize some of my work from my two books, Modern Rainbow and Modern Triangle Quilts. After I get my kids to school, you can find me working to create colorful quilts and engaging products and workshops. A lot of time this work occurs on my laptop but sometimes I get to actually play with the fabric, ha!
As a quilter, I’ve been featured in a ton of magazines. American Patchwork & Quilting, Love Patchwork & Quilting, and ModBlock, to name just a few. I’ve collaborated with several textile type companies. Robert Kaufman released my first fabric line, Panache in 2017 and I have a thread collection with Aurifil. I’m also pleased to work and sew with a Janome Sewing Machine. Though I don’t consider myself to be a “show quilter”, I have been honored with a Second Place Finish in the Minimalist Category at QuiltCon, 2017.
When I’m not busy quilting in color, I love spending time with my family, my four kids, and my hubby. I love to watch them play and swim. We also really enjoy family games; Uno is a favorite. We just got back from living in the Netherlands for a year (what a whirlwind!). For an escape from (or reward for) hard work, I love to curl up on the sofa with a good book and an iced espresso or a glass of wine. I have a secret dream of becoming a novelist… someday….
How can I help you?
I love serving the quilting world by creating fun, modern and classic, but always colorful quilts. Whether you want to become more skilled in choosing color palettes for yourself or you want someone to do all the color work for you, I’m your girl.
