I have always been a crafty person. I can remember my grandmother teaching me to use her sewing machine when I was five years old so that we could make clothes for my dolls. I love most handcrafts and can usually be found quilting, sewing, knitting, or cross stitching.
I found my design mojo a few years ago when a friend was getting married; something popped into my head telling me that I needed to make her a quilt and I was off! I didn't realize that there was such a thing as a quilt pattern, so I just made it up as I went along. I have been designing my own patterns ever since. I now design for books, magazines, sewing websites/blogs, my personal line of patterns, and I often offer up free patterns and tutorials through my website (kayeprince.com).
I also teach classes now, mainly for English Paper Piecing, and I enjoy it so much. I never thought that I would make a good teacher, but it seems that when it comes to sewing, my love of the craft just spills over and I forget all of my nervousness and anxiety.
This pattern includes instructions for making two different sizes of my original Orion quilt! Orion is fun and modern - it is fat quarter friendly, and utilizes larger prints well due to the size of the star blocks. This pattern includes diagrams as well as to-the-point instructions. It also includes the templates needed to paper piece the arrows and a list of extra ideas for utilizing portions of the pattern in different ways.
My patterns have been featured in books, magazines, and various places online. If you need any help please feel free to contact me!
