"Though you wouldn't expect it from the fun, quirky illustrations she is known for, Sue Marsh possesses a background in software engineering. This highly technical background provided her with the ideal skill-set for quilt and pattern design. After 15 years working in the information industry as a software engineer, she decided to make her passionate hobby a fulltime venture and launched Whistlepig Creek Productions, her pattern design company. Whistlepig Creek has found great success in its 10 year history, with an extensive website and mail-order business thriving. "I use math-especially trigonometry and geometry-more in quilting than in software developement!" Since she was a child, Sue Marsh has always been drawing characters. Her hand-drawn illustrations reflect a sense of youthfulness, whimsy and fun. Sue has a background in fabric design, having created multiple lines of fabric for RJR Fabrics. Sue's fun, lighthearted collections of novelty prints appeal to both kids and the young-at-heart!"
