About the Authors
Having met as members of the same quilt guild just two years ago,
the authors found their skills to be very complementary, as one
is a passionate quilt and pattern designer with a background in
marketing, and the other is a textile designer with a parallel career
in fine art and illustration.
Barbara Campbell spent most of her adult working life as
an executive assistant in several different industries, but always
in the marketing area. She acquired important writing, merchandising
and public relations skills. Once she discovered the wonderful world
of quilting, she abandoned her 'real job' in the corporate world
to venture into her own business designing quilts and patterns.
She spent some time as a technical reader for a quilting publication
and then as an editor for two quilting magazines, acquiring additional
skills to incorporate into her business plan. The only thing missing
was the ideal partner, which she found in Yolanda.
Yolanda Fundora has been painting, drawing and designing
all her life. Somewhat to her surprise, she has managed to make
her present life a wonderful mixture of all the artistic activities
that interest her: textile design, illustrating children's books,
all kinds of fine art of the digital and not-so-digital variety,
gardening and designing books and covers for a Spanish-English bilingual
publisher. She is supremely lucky to share her life and home with
a very talented art quilter and to have wonderful 'art' discussions
as daily fare. She also thanks the universe for having found Barbara
at the right moment in life, a business partner of singular inventiveness
and generosity of spirit.
Combining their broad-based experience, Barbara and Yolanda are
now bringing fabric lines to market under the Jersey Girls brand.
Almost all the fabrics used throughout the book are designed by
Yolanda and printed by various manufacturers.
