Wind Drifter Quilt


Anna Marie Giese

Quilting is my Passion! I have been making quilts for over 30 years but
began sewing as a young girl making clothing for myself. I love all the
fabrics and patterns that are available and I can hardly wait to finish
one project to move onto the next one. I enjoy traditional piecing,
English Paper Piecing, Paper Piecing and working with wool.
After retiring from my full-time job, I began working at a quilt store.
For nine years I made quilt models, taught classes, and assisted
customers. In 2000, I purchased a long-arm machine and began
quilting as a business. I have made countless quilts and quilted over
5,000 quilts. I continue to quilt for myself and Quilts of Valor.
Next year I am excited to have two of my original quilt designs
published in Quilter’s World (Jan/Feb 2024) and American Quilter
(Sept/Oct 2024). I love making quilts and I enjoy teaching others to
love the art as well.
