Nadine RugglesAbout the Author

Nadine Ruggles has been sewing and crafting since childhood and caught the quilting bug in 1990. She wanted to make "just one large quilt" for the bed and, of course, couldn't stop quilting after that. Being mostly self-taught, she sees each new quilt as a challenge and combines her special talents for fabric selection, precision piecing, elegant quilting and unexpected embellishments to create innovative quilt art pieces.

She enjoys choosing fabrics, finding the perfect fabric for a certain block or pattern, and putting different colors and fabrics together to create new effects. Her work is a collection of many styles; some quilts are decidedly traditional, while others are more innovative or in the art quilt genre. Quilts and projects with many different fabrics are the most interesting and challenging to her.

Nadine lives in Angelbachtal, Germany, with her husband Eric, who works with the U.S. Army and two beautiful daughters, Erica and Erin. Patches and Shadow, the family cats, keep her company in her quilting studio. She teaches classes and workshops in a variety of quilting and embellishment techniques for the Army Arts & Crafts programs, as well as for local quilt guilds and shops. Her quilts have been exhibited across the United States in quilt shows, galleries and museums
