Hi, I'm Sharla! I first put foot to pedal when I was seven years old in the beginning sewing project in 4-H. Soon I was crafting clothing for myself throughout Jr. and Sr. high school, even making my bridesmaids' dresses for my wedding. But I was in my 30's before I discovered quilting and thus started my love affair with textiles and how to cut them up and sew them back together - something my hubby has never understood! My love of fabric (and profession in economic development) led me to open a quilt shop, where I honed my quilting skills, began teaching classes and designing patterns. Now retired, I have continued to design quilting patterns as a Moda Bake Shop Chef and have been published in four Moda Bake Shop books. And now, I'm thrilled to share my patterns with you here at Thistle Thicket Studio!
