About Daydreams of Quilts:

Welcome to DaydreamsOfQuilts. My name is Anita and when I am not quilting or busy being a full time Mom I am daydreaming about quilts. I also enjoy other sewing projects, embroidery and cross stitch. Please enjoy your visit here. If you need to reach me there is a contact form at the bottom of this page.


A Lifetime of Sewing and Crafting

I have been sewing and crafting for most of my life. The earliest thing I can remember sewing with a needle and thread was a little rag doll with black button eyes that I made with my Mom at age four. I had always wanted a handmade quilt ever since my parents read me the "Little House" books at bedtime. In 1997 I finally made up my mind to learn how to quilt and I haven't looked back. That means I've been quilting for 20 years! :)

I am a Journalism Arts graduate who writes about and photographs quilts for my blog and quilt magazines.

I married my husband in 2000 and we had our first baby in 2005, second baby in 2008 and third in 2014. Many, many baby quilts have been sewn for those babies. I don't have the heart to put the kids in daycare and have worked from home sewing quilts since the first one was born with a few odd jobs here and there when I could fit working around my husband's schedule.

In 2015 I began designing quilt, sewing and embroidery patterns and releasing them out into the world as PDF files. I am happiest when I am in my studio creating or snuggled up under a quilt with my kids and a Dr. Seuss book.

Additional Information

Communication is very important. Please feel free to contact me with questions or with any concerns involving your purchase so I can do my best to serve you. My home is smoke free. We have a border collie puppy who is not allowed in the studio but may be near projects as I need to work near him and our toddler. Every effort will be made to keep him from contacting fabrics.

Partner and Carpenter

My husband Dave is my carpenter for quilt ladders and booth displays. He is my business partner and an awesome Dad to our kids. He's a bit camera shy (seen here with our youngest).
