Heather has been sewing since her teens and quilting for more than 25 years. Her first quilt was an Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day. Since she had a king sized bed, it made sense to her to make a king sized quilt. Go big or go home, right? That quilt was in shades of mauve and dusty blue (hello mid ’80’s!) Let’s just say her fabric tastes have changed since then!
Heather considers herself a modern quilter, with traditional roots. She is the founder of the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild and loves speaking to different groups and sharing the modern aesthetic. She is foremost a teacher and teaches modern quilting classes in local shops, guilds and shows across the country.
Heather is a contributing author to the book Classic Modern Quilts and a featured quilter in The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters by Sherri Lynn Wood, and 50 Little Gifts published by Lucky Spool. You can frequently find her work in Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Magazine, Modern Patchwork Magazine and Curated Quilts Magazine.
