SWD - Southwind Designs - Annette Ornelas

Wendy Ulmer Southwind Designs, which began in 2000, was developed to offer students unique quilting patterns that were easy, fun and could be done by any level of quilter. Owner Annette Ornelas wanted to teach quilting in a way that would put her students at ease in a relaxed atmosphere and provide a new spin on traditional patterns and quilts.

Since then, Annette has produced eighty patterns and two books one of which, Peeled-Back Patchwork: Curves without Piecing, was published through AQS in 2004. She also developed the Dimensional Curves technique to simplify the process of piecing curved quilt-block shapes for her students.

In the last five years Southwind Designs has produced quilt patterns for Timeless Treasures Fabrics. These have been featured as limited-time downloads on their website. You can find several updated formats of these designs here.
