Hi, I'm Rana (say Renee) and I live on a hobby farm in northwest Wyoming. I spend my summers tending heirloom veggies, heritage apples, and highland cattle. I spend my winters, my long cold winters, designing quilt and sewing patterns, which tend to be inspired by my everyday life.
I have been a maker of things since I was little. Barbie clothes, stuffed animals, latch hook rugs, painted gourds, granny square afghans, you name it, I probably gave it a whirl. Except for quilting! I didn’t grow up with quilts, not using them or making them, so when I made my first quilt in the late 80s, it was truly a new experience for me. I had no idea "how" to make a quilt, so I just made one: cardboard template, scissors, ⅝" seam allowance, mismatched scraps of various substrates, polyester batting (double layered for extra "quilty-ness"), the backing folded over to also serve as a binding, and tied with yarn.
