Jennie Jo Lamb with Lambfarmdesigns
Sewing has always been an influential part of my life. Growing up, there isn’t a time I can remember that my grandmother, mother, and aunt weren’t sewing or creating their next masterpiece. Naturally, I began with handwork; that evolved into garment sewing. Not long thereafter, I began quilting and the rest was history! In the last twenty years quilting has become my passion. Now, designing beautiful patterns is also a huge part of that passion.

I wake up everyday feeling blessed to watch my family grow in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Aside from quilting, I thrive on spending time with those I love.
I am a quilt pattern designer from the Pacific Northwest. Quilting is my passion and it seems that it has naturally evolved into quilt pattern writing. I started sewing at about 5 years old and have been sewing or quilting ever since. Writing patterns gives me an avenue to share my love of this art with others!
