About Vanessa


It was inevitable that I should become a quilter. Addictions of this magnitude tend to be familial--and boy have I been predisposed. I've got my mother to blame; she shared her sewing and design knowledge with me since I was a little girl. It started with playing in her fabric stash and evolved to a full-blown quilt addiction by the time I was a teenager.

I have always been drawn to the beautiful fabrics of Moda, and began the joyful experience of designing fabric for them in 2013. (I'm still pinching myself on that one.) Since then, I have self published dozens of patterns, and am author to the two bestselling quilt books: Charm School -18 Quilts from 5'' Squares; and Jelly Filled - 18 Quilts from 2½" Strips (Stash Books). 

I have always felt a call to create and am grateful for the opportunity to add beauty + love to the world through this medium. Of all my creative endeavors, I'm most happy to be mama to two spunky children, Olive and Lorenzo--who also like making things and keep life exciting down in southern Utah.
