Quilt Patterns by Martha Eddy of Eddy & Eddy Designs

I began quilting in the late ‘70’s with baby quilts and buntings and even a machine appliquéd wall hanging or two.  But then came an almost 12 year break for children, a career in bio-research and life on a small farm.

My sister Marjorie re-introduced me to the delights of creative quilting.  Not only did she show me the radical new cutting system: the rotary cutter/ruler/mat-but ALSO took me to a real quilt shop!  An “ah-ha!” moment!  Wow!  Fabrics had been evolving-what had I missed?

Friends and I began to gather at lunch hour to talk-talk-talk all things quilts.  We exchanged squares of Christmas fabric for a scrappy star quilt.  Another “ah-ha!” moment!  Seven quilts-same fabrics, same pattern, each completely individual.  We were hooked.  All of us remain avid quilters and still gather for road trips to shows and classes.

Since retiring, I’ve found a niche at the Carriage Quilt Shoppe in East Aurora, NY.  Owners Linda and Sue have encouraged me to teach and put my ideas into patterns.  Along with teaching techniques,  I urge my students not to get stuck ’copying’ quilts they admire, but rather to “make it your own!”  I hope to instill confidence for them to use learned skills to personalize their creation-that’s when the fun begins!

“Eddy & Eddy Designs” is a tribute to my husband, daughter and son who all cheerfully lend their talents and critiques to new projects.  And-of course- to Oscar the Cat, who appears in the my logo and handles all supervisory duties.
