She created her own line of quilt patterns in 2002 and in 2004 Heidi started designing fabric in her own bright and whimsical style. By 2005 the work load warranted expanding to a partnership and The Whimsical Workshop LLC began with Heidi as the main designer. Heidi is known for her fun and whimsical quilts which she often makes in dramatic, bright colors. She also has an excellent reputation for writing clear and easy to follow instructions. Heidi designs a large number of project sheets featuring fabric lines from national companies such as Blank Quilting, David Textiles, Studio E, Timeless Treasures and Robert Kaufman. She also designs quilt patterns for a variety of popular quilting magazines such as Quiltmaker, McCall’s Quick Quilts, The Quilter and Quilts. In addition she has completed five books; Quilted Whimsy, Bold Batiks and Dazzling Designs for Leisure Arts. For C&T Publishing she has written “Pop Up Paper Structures”.
