Cynthia a quilt pattern designer and longarm quilter who hails from Eugene, Oregon. According to her blog, Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework, she has been serious about quilting since around 2003. Even though she sewed with her grandmother when she was young, she really didn’t start learning good techniques and habits until she started taking some classes and getting some difficult quilts under her belt. She loves fabrics with lots of color, so she tends to quilt toward the more contemporary spectrum. She is drawn to simple lines and allowing the colors and fabrics to do all the work which is reflected in her quilts.Cynthia will be giving a talk on Friday evening in the Dye House at the Willamette Heritage Center as well as having a booth during the show.
