About Me

Hi, I'm Kristy!

As the Founder and past President of the St. Louis Modern Quilt Guild, I love to educate others about the modern quilting aesthetic, and bring quilting to a new audience. 

I am also the Owner/Designer of St. Louis Folk Victorian, a growing quilt pattern design brand.You can learn more about those patterns here

Professional Bio

Kristy wants to live in a world where quilts are touched by child's hands and dirtied by grass; because to her it means that they are well-loved.

Her work has been featured in magazines and she took social media by storm with her pixelated quilts The Tenth, and Holy Sh*t Sherlock. She is the Founder & past President of the St. Louis MQG, where she shared her love of modern quilting with others.

When she’s not playing with fabric scraps, you can find her renovating her century-old farmhouse.
