Kathy Brown “Measure twice, cut once.” I’m such an impatient person – I want to be done with the cutting and on to the piecing! Saying this to myself as I cut has saved me from making wrong cuts innumerable times. Also, I sign off every book and pattern with “Enjoy in good health with a warm heart”!


Besides being an accomplished quilter, Kathy is a fabric designer, a sought after teacher, ruler designer, and has published over 100 patterns and many books!

I have had the great pleasure of being friends with Kathy over the years. She is smart and super funny!
