Hi! I'm Krista Robbins, a quilter and pattern designer and maker living in St. Louis, Missouri with my husband and two sons.
I come from a family of crafty, artsy people. My mother paints beautiful pictures and my walls are filled with incredible paintings of my kids. My great grandma was an aspiring artist with dreams of art school but with the beginning of World War I she went to work and channeled her art into knitting, sewing, and mosaics among other things. My sister sews, paints, makes rugs, and every kid craft you can think of. I dabbled in all kinds of things but my passion lies in home arts - sewing & quilting, cooking, soap making.
I began quilting in 2004 and was hooked with my very first quilt. I'm a very practical person and quilting to me combined creativity with practicality in creating useful things. Most of my quilts have been of my own design, which led to writing patterns so I could recreate the quilt or share the pattern with others. I love designing quilts and making patterns for many reasons, but the best part is seeing the quilts others make from my patterns, seeing their vision.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I'd love to hear from you!
I've had patterns published in Fons & Porters Love of Quilting, Quilty, Modern Quilts Unlimited, and Moda Bake Shop.
When I'm not Sewing or Designing....
You'll find me cooking or gardening, making soap & bath bombs, reading, and/or hanging out with my guys!
