Hi Quilty Friends!
I'm Alison, the face behind Alison Barry Quilting. I have been quilting since 2019 and designing patterns since 2021.
My love for sewing is genetic as both my mom and grandma were avid sewists. I am a self-taught quilter and my early quilts are reflective of that, but the love of quilting stuck and has developed into a passion.
When I started using patterns, I found that a number were very labor intensive and steps had to be repeated multiple times and were not very conscientious of the value of time.
I began to redraw the patterns to find more streamlined piecing methods. I then started to use EQ8 and began playing with designing quilt patterns.
My patterns are written using methodologies that are streamlined so that quilters can maximize their time.
When I'm not quilting, I am spending time with my husband and children.
