Hi! I am Janet Barker from Calgary, AB. I have been quilting for 14 years and have been designing my own quilt patterns for about 7 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. I have three 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.
Broken Arrows makes a striking lap quilt or table runner inspired by a Native American design. This quilt looks equally good in earth tones, sunset hues or southwest colours, as long as there is good contrast in value. Have some fun with this dynamic geometric design by jb.quiltdesigns.
This pattern has a cutting chart and illustrations of each step in construction, as well as quilting suggestions. There is no appliqu, curved piecing or paper piecing used in the quilt construction.
