Get to Know Heather
Heather’s passion for quilt design is founded in her past as a landscape oil painter and her desire to be creative. She first tried quilting in 1995 but didn’t catch the quilting bug until 2011 when she designed, pieced and hand quilted her first queen size quilt. Shortly after that she discovered modern quilting and from that point on Heather has been designing and making quilts whenever possible. Her quilts and patterns have been featured in various quilting publications. Heather has had quilts in the International, national, regional and local quilt shows. She won first place use of negative space for her Urban Trek quilt at QuiltCon 2018.
Heather recently published her first book with her friend, Daisy, through C&T Publishing, Quilt Modern Curves and Bold Stripes, and is releasing her second book on quilt design in February 2021, Design Make Quilt Modern. She has also released her very first fabric line, Sketchbook by Paintbrush Studios, which will be available in October 2020.
Along with quilting Heather is a widowed mom of a beautiful girl, CoraJoan, and lives in Spokane, WA. She grew up in the Pacific Northwest and attended college in Pennsylvania. Many of her designs are inspired the landscapes and experiences in her home state. She maintains a shop and blog at www.quiltachusetts.com and is active on Instragram under @quiltachusetts.
