Hello there, my name is Kaitlyn. I began a love affair with quilting and fabric at a very young age.  When I was 11 years old I asked my mom one day if she’d help me make a quilt.  Being a new quilter herself we set out on a journey.  I picked a pattern and drew out a picture of the churn dash design, I colored in all the squares and triangles, and took it to the fabric store.  We showed the lady at the cutting counter and she said, “I have just the fabric for you.”  She proceeded to pull out a stack of beautiful bright colors from under the counter, her own personal stash (I quickly learned what those were having worked at a quilt shop for 5+ years).  That is where it began.
I’m grateful that at a young age I was able to learn a skill that has carried me through all the ups and downs of my life.  A talent and hobby that brings me so much JOY. I love to create and design.  I expanded my love of creating quilts to bag, and clothing. I love to see how I have grown and improved as a quilter over the past 15 years.
I have been long arm quilting for 10 years and love to help others finish there quilts.  I also just recently started my own pattern company and am excited for this new venture of creating patterns for bags and quilts.
