Erin designs patterns that are traditional with a twist. She appreciates the many styles of quilting and has centered her lectures and classes around techniques that enable the quilter to create complicated quilts using simplified methods. In addition, she is a Ruler Designer with Creative Grids. Her five rulers, two 15-Degree Triangles, the 45-degree Diamond Dimensions and two 22.5 degree triangle keep her very busy designing and creating a myriad of patterns to accompany them. Both her rulers and original patterns can be found in quilt shops across the country as well as Australia and the United Kingdom.
Most recently, Erin and her husband, John, have opened the Blue Hen Quilt Shop (BlueHenQuiltShop.com) in Newark, Delaware! Filled with batiks and cotton fabrics and lots of quilty accoutrements, the shop is fun and inviting place to inspire quilters. With a large classroom in the back, Erin continues to offer a wide variety of classes taught by her as well as other fantastic quilters.
Erin enjoys the opportunity to travel to guilds, retreats and quilt shops to share her love of quilting as well as exhibiting her quilts at local, regional and national shows. She is always delighted by the warm reception and eagerness of quilters to learn from each other and continues to take classes herself.
