My name is Shelby. For most my life I swore I would never sew, quilt or do anything with a thread and fabric.

Yet, here I am. I design quilt patterns inspired by the places I travel to. I am based in south Asia and frequently travel with my husband and four kids.

A couple facts about me:

  • I'm color blind (I prefer color challenged), so my husband helps me choose fabrics.
  • Buy me a fancy coffee and we are best friends.
  • My husband and I are opposites.
  • I learned to quilt by asking questions and have never taken a quilting class.
  • I speak Hindi and Urdu enough to get around.
  • I regularly see water buffalo, camels and monkeys outside my house.
  • I home school my kids.
  • I have traveled to 15 countries and counting.
  • I love cheesy, sappy hallmark movies.
Here I am on one of our family adventures with my second youngest.
