I consider myself a modern quilter, with traditional roots. I'm the founder of the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild and love speaking to different groups and sharing the modern aesthetic. I'm foremost a teacher. I teach modern quilting classes in local shops, guilds and shows across the country.Bio Heather Kojan
I've been sewing since my teens and quilting for more than 25 years. My first quilt was an Eleanor Burns Quilt in a Day. Since I had a king sized bed, it made sense to me to make a king sized quilt. Go big or go home, right? That quilt was in hades of mauve and dusty blue (hello mid ) Let's just say my fabric tastes have changed since then!
I'm a contributing author to the book Classic Modern Quilts and a featured quilter in The Improv Handbook for Modern Quilters by Sherri Lynn Wood, and 50 Little Gifts published by Lucky Spool. You can frequently find my work in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Magazine, Modern Patchwork Magazine and Curated Quilts Magazine.
