Hi there! I’m Sam Hunter, the Head Thaumaturgist and Chick in Charge here at Hunter’s Design Studio. I’m a fabric girl with an MFA in Fibers – I started sewing when I was 7 and haven’t really stopped since. I started quilting back in 1989 and teaching shortly thereafter. Quilting is my favorite place to play when I’m not making serious art. I consider my sewing machine to be the ultimate power tool, and try to use it every day.
I’ve made plenty of quilts over the years, many from other people’s patterns but also a bunch that I’ve designed myself. I’ve recently decided to commit my newest designs to paper and PDFs so that I can share the fun. I aim to design things that are pleasantly complex to look at, but are pleasantly simple to make. I believe fiber and fabric bring great joy to those who use them, and especially to those that are lucky enough to be given things made from them.
Just so you know (and like you couldn’t tell) my favorite color is ORANGE. I tend to make a lot of things in orange, but trust me when I tell you that if you make my patterns in your favorite colors they will work pretty well too.
Thanks for stopping by!
