Amanda has been creating from a young age. She learned to sew at 10 years old and hasn’t stopped since. In college she studied art, art history, fashion design and interior design. Several years later, when she added quilting to her life, she was finally all “pieced” together. At last, at the tender age of 32, she knew what she wanted to be when she grew up! A quilter!
Not long after that, her company, called The Quilted Fish , was born. Why the name The Quilted Fish? Because she’s a Herring! Amanda loves to hand out “red Herring’s” (aka Swedish fish) to people to help them remember her and her company. In 2010 Amanda completed her first line of fabric for Riley Blake Designs called Sweet Divinity.
Amanda loves making quilt patterns and designing fabric and her love of color and flair for design show in her creations. And what, you may ask, is her favorite creation? Her answer never changes....her family.
