BPQD - Back Porch Quilts and Designs, LLC - Vicki Hesseltine

Vicki is a quilt pattern designer and owner of Back Porch Quilts and Designs, LLC. She designs for pieced work as well as appliqué and has expanded to a line of wool applique patterns. Vicki grew up loving needle work and hand crafts of all kinds. Her grandmother began teaching her to embroider at the age of 5. From there she explored knitting, crochet, hand and machine sewing and finally quilting. At the young age of 13 she made a baby quilt for her new little sister. The quilt was made from gingham check squares and tied with floss. By the second quilt she began to hand quilt and the quilting bug had bit. In the early 2000's Vicki was introduced to appliqué and immediately fell in love with the process. Before long she began to create her own quilt designs. With the encouragement from friends, she began designing and publishing patterns for sale, and Back Porch Quilts and Designs was born.

Today Vicki is a retired accountant who spends her time in the community of other quilt artists creating comfort quilts and art pieces. She uses mostly bright vibrant colored fabrics to create quilts for emergency shelters and others in need. Her mission is to bless others through the gift of quilts made with love and stitched with prayers.
