Me & My Sister

To view more collections, click here.

Barbara Groves and Mary Jacobson have had their hands in just about every aspect of quilting.

These one-time shop owners grew a business out of their love of making quilts – Me & My Sister Designs. They’ve designed fabric for Moda for more than ten years, developed the SideWinder portable bobbin-winder and designed hundreds of quilts that they’ve published in books and patterns.

Barbara and Mary love infusing what they call “everyday color” into their fabrics and then using those fabrics to transform traditional pattern designs into bright, vibrant quilts.

To see what else they’ve colorfully re-made –
