Leslie Christensen

My name is Leslie Christensen. I am so excited to introduce myself and tell you about my passion for quilting!

I grew up playing under a quilt while my mom and her friends were quilting and visiting. The art of quilting wasn't enough for me, I wanted to piece quilts like my grandmothers. My mom always said she was not interested in piecing quilts because she didn't want to cut out all the little pieces. She had never met my friends "Olfa Mat" and "Rotary Cutter".

Some wonderful women invited me to attend their quilt group where I was taught from the best. That was 26 years ago... now they are my dear friends. Quilting has a way of bringing people together. In 2017 I purchased American Quilting in Orem, Utah. I love meeting fellow quilters and helping others find the joy in Quilting.

The need to create, combined with my love for color produces a passion for creating quilts. I love the process of bringing colored fabrics together, cutting them up, and reassembling them to create a quilt that can be used on a bed, as a TV cuddle blanket, a home or holiday decoration, a bag, a table runner... (you get the idea).

Come to my class so I can get you hooked... I mean started.
