About Us

We are sisters, as a result, the name of our patterns – BrendaBarb Designs. Over the years our shared love of quilting has transcended the miles that still separate us. Brenda’s career caused her to move around. While her art major was used very little with her work, Brenda makes good use of it in designing quilts. Barb is able to write easy-to-follow directions and illustrations using her mathematics major and “left-brain” characteristics. We are experienced quilters and teachers, using our teaching backgrounds. Together, we carry over 30 years of experience in the quilting arena. We have experience teaching quilting classes at quilt shops, guilds and retreats. Brenda has also been designing patterns for the past ten years for classes and personal use.

Our patterns have been featured in books and magazines, as well as being available online and through printed catalogs.
