Crystal is the designer behind the Craftsy pattern store, FrivolousNecessity, a great place to go for awesome quilting patterns. Sure, she holds advanced degrees in biochemistry and cell biology, but before you think she’s stuck in a lab all day, consider that Crystal describes herself as a “quilting and sewing maniac.” And judging by her inventive variety of patterns, it would definitely seem that she spends at least as much time at her sewing machine as her microscope.
All of Crystal’s patterns are beautiful, we’ve selected a few of her gorgeous fall quilts to highlight. Any of you machine quilting fans out there will want to special attention to these. Perhaps you’ll decide that you need one of these “frivolous necessities”!
