Amy graduated from Kansas State University with a degree in fine arts / graphic design. She started sewing at age 9 and began quilting in the 80s. Amy’s inspiration for her first quilt design, Dazzling Dogs, was to create a gift for her husband John's veterinary clinic. She started her business with that quilt pattern in 2002 and has been having a blast ever since. Amy’s daughter Ashley joined her in 2003 and they have been working together since then. Amy and Ashley work really hard to bring you fun designs with great instructions. Amy’s mother Dorothy attends Quilt Market and helps choose colors for every quilt. Amy loves designing whimsical, crazy quilts and is always looking for her next comical character.
