About Me

Hi, I'm Kristy!

I've been sewing since I was a child and quilting for almost as long. I reside in St. Louis, Missouri where I am continually renovating my century-old farmhouse, playing in my studio and baking something in the kitchen.

I am the Founder and past President of the St. Louis Modern Quilt Guild, and love to educate others about the modern quilting aesthetic. I have lectured and taught workshops for shops, guilds and organizations across the country, so please contact me if you are interested.

I also have my own line of quilt patterns; which you can learn more about here
