Hi! I’m Holly

Welcome to my quilty little corner of the internet. I’m a designer, quilter, fabric junkie, maker, coffee drinker, and flower smeller.

I run my small modern quilt design business from my home in sunny Winnipeg, Canada, where I live with my two teenage kids, who keep me humble on the daily, my husband, who keeps me inspired and motivated, and our cat Jovie. I started quilting in 2017 but have been sewing since the late ’90s. Ever since I caught the quilting bug, there was no turning back, I’m obsessed. I hope you enjoy following along with me on my quilting journey.
