Designer: Janet Maurer
I am the “boss” of For You Too! Pattern Company. We are now in our 11th year of business and hope to continue creating projects that make quilters and quilt recipients smile. Although I’ve always enjoy making art, this is the most fulfilling job I’ve had as an artist. I have always had a love for sewing and drawing. What can be better than combining both loved into quilt making? I love to surround myself with and make colorful, “happy” quilts, wall hangings, purses, and appliqué art. I often design quilts using animals and add subtle expressions to their faces. I design for babies, children and adults. It’s important to me to make quits that bring “sunshine and smiles” to people. I try to draw people into my quilts and often use little details or surprises to achieve that. I am a wife, mother of three grown daughters, who has a one year old grandson (who is always an inspiration to me) and a friend to my little dog Kirby. The world is a colorful place and as someone once said “artists are lucky people!”.
