When she was 20, she moved to England. Her roommate took a quilting class. Anna learned to paper piece from her, but didn’t like it much. She was inspired by a friend’s patchwork quilt. She made individual blocks for her own quilt, but didn’t put it together. Her Aunt in German took her blocks and put them together for her.
Anna became really interested in quilting when she joined the Philly Modern Quilt Guild.
Here are some quilts that she shared with us:
Amy Butler pinks and greens: her first complete quilt
Anna shared the book, “ Last-Minute Patchwork + Quilted Gifts” , written by the owner of Purl Soho. She’s made the color wheel quilt from the book 4 times.
