Mandy Leins was hooked on quilting after making her first Rail Fence quilt 11 years ago using her grandmother's 1943 in-cabinet Singer. Since that first quilt, Mandy's passion for quilting and teaching has turned into a business. A professional longarm quilter and pattern designer, Mandy's first two patterns were published in Modern Quilts Unlimited and one, "All Together Now," was juried at the Machine Quilters Exposition. Formerly, Mandy worked as a classical archaeologist and the ancient world continues to influence and inspire her quilt designs.View all patterns by designer (3) »
When I was younger, I trained to be a Classical archaeologist. This pattern is special to me because it combines not only my love of the ancient world, but also my love of quilts! It was a very satisfying piece to make, and I was honored to be asked to speak about it and my design inspiration at QuiltCon, when it was first published by Modern Quilts Unlimited. I hope it is a fun quilt for you, as well! I'd love to have you share your interpretations on my flickr group, Mandalei Patterns,
Sew in good health and happiness!
