I'm Joanne Kerton and I was bitten by the quilting bug almost 20 years ago, paper piecing and hand quilting my first quilt over the course of a year and a half. My speed has improved since then, though enjoying the process ranks higher than speed in my book!
I enjoy playing with shapes, colours and layouts, and figuring out the math that goes with them. While I have been dabbling in quilt design for at least 15 years, I started sharing them as patterns in 2013 and have published over 20 stand alone patterns. I have had designs published in American Patchwork and Quilting magazine, have patterns in quilting catalogs and I have begun speaking and teaching about quilting.
I draw on previous experiences studying Physics and working in museum education programming to create clear, organized patterns and to plan my quilting classes.
I think I have finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up: a quilter!
A proud Canadian, I currently reside in Iowa. We followed my astronomer husband's job here. Happily, quilting is portable so I can follow my dreams while he explores the stars.
