About the Authors
When Teri Christopherson was five years old, her mother
sat her at the sewing machine and began what was to become
a lifelong passion. By the time Teri was a teenage, she was
spending all her spare change at the fabric store and sewing
all her own clothes. She taught herself to quilt while in
college, and a few years later as a young mother in search
of a home business, she started her quilt-pattern business,
Black Mountain Quilts
As the mother of four children, Teri knows how hard it is
to find time to quilt. She loves designing quilts that are
quick and easy to make, yet still look impressive. She has
designed hundreds of quilts and has authored more than 20
books and 30 patterns.
When she isn't quilting, Teri enjoys reading, throwing parties
and volunteering at church. She lives with her husband and
four children near Mission Viejo, California.
Barbara Brandeburg has a vivid memory of her first
trip to the fabric store with her mother as a young girl.
Her heart raced and a passion for fabric and color was born.
She has been designing and playing with both in one form
or another every since. She a her five sisters loved life
around the sewing room with their sewing entrepreneur mother
in a home filled with creativity and lots of girl gab time.
In the early nineties, Barbara and her sister Teri plunged
into a fun adventure, sewing quilt to sell in boutiques in
a darling little apple-and-antiques town called Julian, in
Southern California. It was a natural next step to move onto
pattern designing. Barbara launched Cabbage Rose with her
first quilt designs and now has over 20 books, dozens of
patterns, quilt fabrics, and giftware credited to her name.
She gets a thrill out of the process of creating something
betterusually a traditional theme with a new twist
of trendy color and pattern.
While not designing, Barbara loves to garden, kayak and take
long river-trail walks in the woods. She and her husband
John live near the rivers, lakes and mountains of northern
California. Their daughter Katie is away at college, while
their son Travis serves in the army. Barbara's biggest new
joy is her daughter-in-law Amber and grandson Hunter.
