Patterns from Highway 10 Designs

We are so excited about the newest addition to our quilt pattern section!

We now stock patterns from Highway 10 Designs designed by two absolutely wonderful Canadian quilters!
Kathy Schwartz and Lori Suss—two amazing professional long arm quilters from Manitoba—are the pattern designers behind Highway 10 Designs. Kathy and Lori met in Flin Flon, MB at a local guild meeting in 2003. An instant friendship began and soon they were co-hosting guild programs that affectionately became known as the "Lori & Kathy Show" because of their completely different approaches to working on any project.

In the fall of 2011 Lori moved to Dauphin and joined the local guild. The idea of designing their own quilt pattern to use as a Mystery project to be presented at both guilds is what sparked the start of their design business. From there Highway 10 Designs was born, named after the highway that connects their two towns. Now 5 patterns later, the drive to create is stronger than ever and they are looking forward to seeing what is around the next corner for Highway 10 Designs.

Besides being pattern designers both are professional Longarm quilters. Their dream of being coming longarm quilters came true for Kathy in 2009 and for Lori in 2012. Kathy is the owner of Tamarack Shack Longarm Quilting located at Schist Lake near Flin Flon, MB. Lori is the owner of Night Owl Quilting and Dye Works located in Dauphin, MB.

We met both Kathy and Lori through Blogathon Canada a couple of years ago and we're thrilled to be bringing their patterns to you!
