Katie Pedersen

Home: Seattle, Washington

The art of making something by hand sets each of us on a journey to discovering who we are as artists. This personal process can start with simply sewing two pieces of fabric together. Constant practice and study have become my best teachers. I love that quilts provide a physical utilitarian object that showcase the evolution of one’s creative confidence and developing aesthetic.

I enjoy merging improvisational techniques with modern and/or traditional quilt design. Exploring new ideas keeps my style in constant evolution and the process fresh. I wish I could sew as fast as the ideas come to me. The good news is I’ll never run out.

I love sharing stories about my quilts and the skills and techniques I’ve learned from making them. My workshops and truck show/lectures make modern improvisational quilting fun, laid back and accessible. Interested in a lecture or an improvisational workshop in your community or guild? Simply drop me a line at sewkatiedid @ I also host weekly Open Studios and workshops in my West Seattle studio. You can find out more about me, and see my quilts, at my website

A little about me…
Loving romance and all it entails naturally leads me to pretty, tasteful and romantic fabrics. I’m inspired to design patterns and quilts with the same charm and grace as the fabric designer. I love colors of all hues and floral prints are my favorite but once in a while I break out of my box and play with brights and batiks.

Lecturing and teaching workshops is all joy to me. I love spending time with other quilters and sharing our quilting passion. Making quilts and designing patterns over the past 18 years I have been able to produce quilts of varying ability and challenges. I truly enjoy teaching and watching other quilters explore color, patterns and design and consider myself blessed to see their finished beauty.

Like most quilters, I’m usually working on about 5-10 projects which teaches me as well…Thank you for considering me. Please take a look at my website Ladylike Designs and contact me at bevquiltlady @ to come teach for you! Click here to download my teaching brochure – Download
