Kristin's introduction to quilting began while she was visiting her grandmother's home as a young child. She can remember sitting under a quilting frame, carefully pushing a needle up for her sister to pull through from the top. They were quite the team! She remembers going home with bandages on each and every fingertip, but she still couldn't wait to try quilting again. Her next notable quilting experience also included bandages, this time with a trip to the emergency room. Rotary blades can be very dangerous! She's learned a lot since then and rarely requires Band-Aids these days.
Kristin started her pattern company, Cute Quilt Patterns, in 2008. She's enjoyed the many friendships that come from daily interactions with fellow quilters and loves having the opportunity to share her designs and see the creativity they inspire. She has written two books, Cute Quilts for Kids and Sew Sweet Baby Quilts, published by Martingale Publishers. Her patterns focus on dimensional embellishments that babies love to play with.
Kristin feels blessed to live on a beautiful hillside of the Wasatch mountains in Elk Ridge, Utah with her amazing husband and six energetic, quilt-toting children.
