Kelly Ashton: As a self-described “pragmatic quilt-maker”, Kelly Ashton approaches quilt design and construction with a knowledge of and appreciation for the theoretical while searching for and developing skills and short-cuts that are practical. Kelly’s passion for patchwork covers a dichotomy between “microwave quilts” (quilts that are simple in design and quick to piece) to “crock-pot quilts” (quilts that are more intricate and complex in their construction), and she happily moves back and forth betwixt the two…..and everything in-between! Kelly especially loves designing and piecing blocks and quilts that require set-in seams (Y-seams) pieced by machine resulted in the authoring of her book, Hexagons, Diamonds, Triangles, and More: Skill-Building Techniques for 60-Degree Patchwork (Martingale, 2014). In addition to designing quilt patterns, Kelly loves to teach and talk about quilts. Her motto is “Have quilts. Will travel.”, and she loves to provide quilt presentations and workshops anywhere!
