About the author (2010)

Charlotte Warr Andersen is an avid and well-known quilter. A native Utahn, she was born in Salt Lake City and has lived there all her life. She learned many needle skills from her mother, but she considers most of her quilting skills to be self-taught or acquired by good observation. Having recently become an empty nester, she resides with her husband, Eskild, and two dogs, Hugo and Legion. Stitching a portrait is still one of her favorite pastimes. Charlotte travels and teaches her stitching and quilting methods. She served as president of the International Quilt Association for two terms, from 2006 to 2009. Now that the children have all moved out, she may have room to purchase a longarm machine. But at the time of the completion of this book, she was still doing all her own quilting on her Berninas.
