ABOUT CHRIS

Growing up in an artistic and crafty family, Chris Schulte has been quilting for... a long time. Never one to follow the rules, she began creating her own patterns - and applique technique! - as well as becoming an expert free motion quilter.

 

An exclusive long armer and active member of her guild, Chris has turned her creative pursuit into a range of patterns - with a scrappy twist - that get people inspired to just quilt!
