My name is Joan Lucchese and I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am married and have four fantastic kids. I am so excited to be a Craftsy designer. I have been a quilter for many years and have just started designing my own line of quilt patterns.I am inspired by the Modern Quilt Movement and the fresh, bright colors of modern quilt fabrics. I am very active in online bees and swaps which are so inspirational, and I am also active in my local modern quilt guild. I blog about my adventures at www.caliquilter.blogspot.com and have a website on the way!
