Hi! I am Janet Barker from Calgary, AB. I have been quilting for 16 years and have been designing my own quilt patterns for about 9 years. At the request of my guild, I started publishing my patterns in 2011. My pattern testers, customers and students have been very happy with their results using my new patterns. I love seeing another quilter's version of my designs!
My patterns often incorporate completely original blocks, or at the very least new twists on standard blocks. In addition to standard piecing, I have three other types of designs - folded back bias curves (sometimes called Cathedral Windows curves), geometrics using "grout", and tessellations. So far I have not incorporated curved piecing or applique, but that may come!
I have an engineering degree and am a retired geophysicist; perhaps that is why I love the geometry of quilting! I hope that you will enjoy stitching up some of my designs.

Wholesale inquiries welcome.
Garden Square offers my Garden Maze design in a block format. Make up 4, 12 or 20 blocks to finish one of the three quilt sizes provided. Choose a colour-way and collect fabrics in a variety of shades from very light to dark; batiks or tone on tone prints work well.
This quilt looks great as a scrappy quilt. Just collect a variety of fabrics in the given amounts for each shade and make each block unique.
Want a "modern" quilt? Swap out the black grout for white and choose any modern fabrics in shades varying from very light to dark.
