Patterns - Designer - Eckmeier, Karen
Patterns - Designer - Eckmeier, Karen
In 1996 I started making art quilts, which were very well received in national and international shows. The awards encouraged me to move forward in my new direction. My hobby officially became my business in 2002 when I opened my business “The Quilted Lizard.” For 8 years I taught at a local quilt store and in 2002 I began teaching my technique “Layered Curves” and “Accidental Landscapes™” nationwide. Teaching workshops gives me the opportunity to share my passion for playing with fabric with others, and I love it!!

Where does the name “Quilted Lizard” come from?

Lizards make me laugh. They’re tiny and cute, and scurry around with amazing speed. I began including lizards in my quilts and loved the smiles and laughs (and blue ribbons) when people looked at my whimsical creations. Over the years I realized that I had collected quite a few lizard pins, belts, t-shirts, hats…. So when it came time to name my company I wanted a mascot that would make people smile.

I began quilting in the late ‘70’s with baby quilts and buntings and even a machine appliquéd wall hanging or two. But then came an almost 12 year break for children, a career in bio-research and life on a small farm.

My sister Marjorie re-introduced me to the delights of creative quilting. Not only did she show me the radical new cutting system: the rotary cutter/ruler/mat-but ALSO took me to a real quilt shop! An “ah-ha!” moment! Wow! Fabrics had been evolving-what had I missed?

Since retiring, I’ve found a niche at the Carriage Quilt Shoppe in East Aurora, NY. Owners Linda and Sue have encouraged me to teach and put my ideas into patterns. Along with teaching techniques, I urge my students not to get stuck ’copying’ quilts they admire, but rather to “make it your own!” I hope to instill confidence for them to use learned skills to personalize their creation-that’s when the fun begins!

Patterns - Designer - Edgerton, Cindi
I began sewing with guidance from 4-H leaders at the age of ten. My interest in quilting developed in 1976, after taking beginning quilting lessons through the YWCA in Salina, Kansas. I’ve been fortunate to have my work featured in the following books: Quilts Across America and Easy Traditional Stars, and also in McCall’s Quilting Magazine, Quilter’s Newsletter Magazine, American Patchwork & Quilting, Traditional Quiltworks, and Quiltmaker. I’ve taught many classes, both locally and on the national level, and own a small company through which I market my designs.

After many family moves due to my husband’s Air Force career, we are now quite settled in the Tidewater area of Virginia. Several years ago I designed a line of foundation piecing patterns called Easy Big Blocks™ for The McCall Pattern Company. These patterns were printed on "dressmaker" weight tissue paper. McCall’s no longer markets these patterns, but I’ve continued designing and producing tissue paper patterns, as shown on this website. McCall’s still prints the tissue paper for me, and I’m fortunate to have a wonderful group of people that work with me with to do all of the packaging. Our newest groups of patterns is called Little Bits, small patterns that make a variety of small quilted items.

Patterns - Designer - Emory, Susan & Van Buskirk, Christine
It was a case of opposites attracting that led to the formation of Swirly Girls Design. Christine’s number-crunching “left brain” logic complements Susan’s color-loving “right brain” characteristics.

After years of working together and teaching at a local quilt shop, Susan Emory and Christine Van Buskirk combined their talents to form Swirly Girls Design. Christine’s engineering background and attention to detail works well with Susan’s graphic design experience and artistic training. The Swirly Girls design creative patterns with clearly written and illustrated instructions.

Patterns - Designer - England, Cynthia
Cynthia began quilting at the age of 13, her interest in quilting was piqued again in 1976 after seeing a display of the Texas Sesquicential quilts in a nearby mall. Essentially a self-taught quilter, she has made about 24 bed-sized quilts and over 70 wall quilts. Although she started with and occasionally still makes traditional style quilts, Cynthia’s hallmark is realistically detailed pictorial quilts. Using skills she developed as a commercial graphic artist, she creates quilts depicting some of her favorite subjects: flowers, nature, antiques and architecture.

After using applique to get the realistic effect in her early quilts, Cynthia gradually devised a machine piecing technique she calls Picture Piecing. This technique breaks the design down into pieces that can all be sewn using straight seams and allows her to include intricate details and shading without a single set-in seam. Her first quilt made entirely from that technique, Piece and Quiet, was so successful she was inspired to continue designing with the Picture Piecing method.
