Independent Quilt Pattern Designers
Here we present our list of independent quilt pattern designers, listed alphabetically, and a short description of what they offer in the way of quilt patterns. There are countless US quilt designers so, in order to keep the list manageable, we have focused specifically on quilt patterns that can be bought from UK shops and provide information on how to buy the patterns in the UK (including Etsy where applicable). We will be adding to the list as new companies appear. If you can add to our list, please use this contact form.
