About the author (1998)

Susan McKelvey caught the quilting bug in 1977 in a quilting class in Greensboro, North Carolina. Although quilting was not a part of her family heritage, it has become a part of her children's lives - they grew up under her design and dewing tables. In 1984, Susan wrote her first quilt book, "Color for Quilters," and many have followed. Through her company, Wallflower Designs, she has produced many patterns and tools for quilters.
