Arlene has been passionate about fabrics, textiles and sewing since she was a young child.  As a young mother, she took a beginner quilt course in a church basement and was launched into the world of quilting.  She has also taken courses in art and photography which show in her quilts through colour, texture, light and composition.  Gardening, nature and life experiences also stimulate and inspire many of her designs.  She began designing in 2011.  Her goal was to design and write patterns that are easy to follow, paying careful attention to detail and including plenty of diagrams and illustrations.Hl

Today her joy of quilting and designing show through in the classes and workshops that she teaches for all levels of quilters.  She is known for her positive energy, patience, and passion for the art of quilting.  You can check out Arlene’s quilt patterns online at ‘The Quilters Bouquet
