Who is Patty Murphy?
Wife. Mother. Designer. Quilter. Author for C&T.
My mother taught me to sew as a child, and I started to quilt when I was 18. I left the zippers behind for a quilting needle and haven’t looked back.
Just before my oldest was born, my quilt, All Squared Up, was featured on the cover of the Better Homes & Gardens Quilt Sampler magazine. I’ve had work published in magazines, and on blogs for major fabric manufacturers.
I’ve been teaching classes at a local quilt shop for the past eleven years, including bias binding, paper piecing, classes on value, and Quilt Studio, a 4 hour window to get help on any project that has you stumped. I love helping quilters solve problems with their quilts.
When I’m not sewing, I’m busy with my family. I have three boys (40, 9, and 6). I love to cook. I hate to clean, and I hoard fabric.
