Why Snapdragon

One of my first memories is from when I was a very young child sitting on the rich soil in my grandma's garden eating peas that she had grown. She was pulling weeds next to me. My Grandma Louise was a gardener who taught me the love of getting my hands dirty. She could grow the most beautiful pansies, petunias, and rainbows of snapdragons as tall as me. Besides gardening, she gave me a love of crafting, sewing, cooking, and a good puzzle.

She also had the biggest heart and had a way to make me feel like I was her favorite person in the whole world. She recognized the good in me and I will forever love her for doing so.

She made this photo a postcard and sent it to me. This 10 year old me is working on a puzzle during a visit at her ranch

Grandma Louise


Hi! I'm Jen, a quilt pattern designer and teacher. I founded Snapdragon Quilting in the spring of 2022 in memory of my beloved Grandma Louise, a skilled seamstress and crafter who grew beautiful snapdragons in her garden. I've been sewing for as long as I can remember and began passionately crafting quilts of my own creation in 2006. My quilt patterns bring bold and vibrant designs that blend traditional piecing methods with contemporary techniques. I love to play with color and contrast so you'll find lots of layout and color options in my patterns. Whether you're new to quilting or making your 100th quilt, you're in the right place, because here at Snapdragon Quilting, quilt patterns make sense.
