About

Anita is a passionate Canadian quilter who has finally figured out the answer to “What do I want to be when I grow up?” She has been quilting since 1997, blogging since 2011 and a pattern designer since 2016. She holds a Journalism diploma from the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology and combines her skills in writing, photography, quilting and teaching on this blog.

She wants to share her knowledge in quilting, pattern design and business with others who seek this knowledge. Why hoard information to yourself? The more the merrier and as the saying goes “A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it… it just grows.”

Here you will find posts about quilting as a hobby and as a business. Feel free to take, or learn, what you need and leave the rest. May we all be beautiful flowers, or in our case, quilters.
