The author is Amy Smart. She is a 30 something wife, mom and quilter. She felt like a granny telling people that she was a sewer/quilter until she entered blogland. Where she found hundreds of quilters of all ages.
She publishes her progress on several project. Her scrappy quilt block jumped at me with all our "scrap" conversations.
Additionally she has her own Etsy store and publishes Quilt Patterns. This one is really cute and simple. So Cute!
