Designer and author, Kate Henderson does!

I live in a small town in the south-west of Western Australia with my husband and four daughters.

Fabric and craft have always been a part of my life. As a young child I remember playing around with scraps of fabric at the feet of my grandmother as she sewed. I began making my own clothes as a teenager and I was soon making soft toys to sell. It was inevitable that I would discover quilting. I made a quilt as a teenager and a couple while I was teaching in remote communities, but I really became addicted when I was pregnant with my now teenage twins. I was soon designing my own quilts and writing patterns.

I was so excited when I discovered EQ6. It made designing so much easier and gave me the confidence to put a book proposal together. I now have three published books with Martingale: Strip Savvy, Striking Strip Quilts, and Scrappy and Happy Quilts and many quilt patterns in various magazines and all of my quilts are designed in Electric Quilt.

“EQ8 makes it so easy to get the ideas in my head into pattern form. I use it to design pieced quilts, foundation pieced quilts and applique quilts. It is so easy to play around with quilt designs and fabric options. There are so many amazing tools in EQ8. I am discovering more of them every day!”
