Kate Colleran has been making quilts since 1978, and in 2003, she launched Seams Like a Dream Quilt Designs with Elizabeth Balderrama. Together, they design quilt and tote bag patterns — a great way to put all of those fabric purchases to work! Their designs have been featured in McCall's <i>Quilting</i> and <i>Quick Quilts</i>, and in <i>Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks</i>. Kate's love of quilting and fondness for fabric shine through her lessons, and she looks forward to helping Craftsy students become their own quilt designers.
