About Me

Hi there! I'm Cyndy. I've been serious about quilting since around 2003.  Even though I sewed with my grandmother when I was young, I really didn't start learning good techniques and habits until I started taking some classes and getting some difficult quilts under my belt.  I love fabrics with lots of color so I tend to quilt toward the more contemporary spectrum.  I am drawn to simple lines and allowing the colors and fabrics to do all the work.  I think that is reflected in my work.

After working for years in high stress management jobs, I decided in 2006 that I wanted to make a change and do something I really enjoyed.  After exploring a number of small businesses, I kept going back to the idea of the longarm quilting industry.  I purchased my APQS Millenium quilting machine in 2007, and I haven't looked back.

Now I spend my days at my home quilting for others and designing and sewing my own quilt patterns. I also lead a group of very gifted quilters that meet monthly and produce some wonderful projects - all of which are donated to various organizations in the area.  The group is called Project:Quilt.

One of my strengths I think is the use of scraps.  I am always trying to come up with new ways of using them.  I teach classes on occasion and I regularly blog about my projects and patterns.  I meet so many wonderful people doing what I do and get to see so many beautiful quilts.  I feel quite blessed.

 I would love to hear from you! You can email me at cynthiabdesigns(at)gmail(dot)com.
