I'm Krisanne. I live with my husband in Springville, Utah, and I have been quilting for over twenty- five years. I grew up watching my maternal grandmother quilt every summer, who learned from her own pioneer grandmother. I pieced my very first quilt while we were expecting our third (of four) child.
My fabric collection and quilting equipment grew as our children did, growing to overtake the children's rooms as they moved out. My husband jokingly (and I hope affectionately) refers to our house as a six- room Quilter's Paradise; I will be the first to admit that it's an addiction. I have been teaching at various quilt conferences and retreats through Utah and Idaho for ten years, teaching my own original designs along with traditional quilting techniques.
My youngest son and I have recently been talking about expanding and using the internet to share my designs with a larger audience, and we became Quail Valley Quilts. We sell my original quilt designs; we are based out of Springville, Utah. I love teaching because I get the opportunity to talk and get to know other amazingly talented quilters, who have taught me and helped me to expand my own skills over the years.
