Hello Quilt Friends!
I’m Heather Peterson – I’m a quilt pattern and fabric designer, business owner and mom. I grew up in my Mom’s sewing room and I spent a lot of my childhood sewing and creating things with fabric. I started quilting as a college freshman - almost 30 years ago and have been obsessed ever since. It wasn’t long until I began designing and publishing my own pattern line under the name of Anka’s Treasures. That collection has grown to include hundreds of quilt designs in books, patterns and magazines. I also spent a lot of time drawing and painting as a kid and have turned that love of drawing into designing fabric. After 20 years of designing fabric, I have created 27 collections - currently in collaboration with Riley Blake Designs and formerly for Henry Glass. Now I try to balance my time between creating and running my business, while raising two busy boys. My husband Joel and I are raising our family on a lake in Minnesota – where the summers are glorious and the winters are . . . let’s just say there is a lot of time to quilt and knit during the long winters here. If you are looking for quilting inspiration during the long winter, or anytime, I hope you will drop by and see what we have to offer!
