About the author (2004)

Hello quilters out there in cyber-land! I decided to revise my first book, Quilt As Desired, that I wrote and published in 1998. I was a professional hand quilter for over 30 years and have worked with individuals and publishers. When I decided to have a home based quilting business, I had no idea how busy it would be! Clients would send me their quilt tops to hand quilt as well as publishers who needed models for their books, magazines and Quilt Market Since 2002, I have been retired from the physical part of hand quilting but I still have the love of quilts and enjoy the friendship of many quilters. The book Guide to Hand Quilting is a compilation of what I learned while working, along with hints and tips. If you're like me, I like a basic 'how-to' with pictures and step-by-step tutorials. In my other life, I was the director of a historic museum, curating a huge amount of artifacts from the 1800s including quilts donated to the museum. Now, I call myself semi-retired since I'm busier now than when I was working full time! My professional clients included Red Wagon Publications, Linda Brannock of Star Quilt company, Jan Patek, Pat Sloan and many individuals. I have a blog http: //karenbushquilts.blogspot.com/ and Facebook Author's page https: //www.facebook.com/karenbushquilts up and I'd like to welcome you to join. I will be concentrating on tutorials, and answering your questions on hand quilting and design ideas. Hand Quilting Guide is designed for both beginners and experienced hand quilters. There is something for everybody! Thanks for dropping in and enjoy the book!
