Hi! I'm Christine.
My family and I started Amelie Scott Designs back in 2008. It was just the perfect business for our family. I love to sew and quilt and create, and so does my daughter. My husband, Mark, has degrees in English, and used to be an editor. (Yes, I sleep with the editor to get myself published, but it has worked well for 25 years so why not.) Back in 2008 my son was taking a web design class in high school, so he was put in charge of our website. Being a teenage boy, he was not keen on a "sewing business," and would tell his friends and teachers that we "sell 'stuff' out of our basement." Later though, he took over creating all the wonderful diagrams we have in our patterns. He is now studying to be an accountant, and is slowing taking over the books. I also work and teach part time in at Quilt Beginnings, in Dublin, Ohio.
People often ask us how we got our company name. My daughter's middle name is Amelie (named after my favorite ancestor and pronounced (uh may lee), and my middle name is Scott.
I hope you enjoy making up our projects as much as we enjoy creating them! Send us pictures! We LOVE seeing your finished projects.
Start with a single, easy quilt block, then use your design wall, iPad, iPhone, or web browser to turn the block to make many unique layouts. That's the concept behind Turn-Style QuiltingTM and the Turn-Style Designer app. Change the block arrangements and change the fabrics to create layouts that are so distinct, people will swear they're different quilt patterns!
Spinning Wheels uses foundation piecing to make the triangle section of the block. The pattern contains full instructions and diagrams that make it simple. So, if you've ever been curious about or confused by foundation piecing, this is a great way to get started!
Spinning Wheels is also a DigiQuiltTM pattern, which means that complementary, computerized quilting designs are available to give your project a cool finish that complements the layout of your quilt top.
The Turn-Styles Designer app is available for iPad and iPhone from the iTunes Store. Or, use the "news article" link above to try the free web version of the Turn-Style Designer.
