About Barbara Dann
Barbara began her quilting career as a longarm machine quilter on July 1, 2000. For 10 years she quilted clients’ quilts and only made a few simple quilts for herself. She started vending at most of the major quilt shows on the east coast and mid-west representing a fabric cutting system. At one of those shows her booth was next to Jeff and Deb Tuckers’ (Studio 180 Design) and they became fast friends! Deb and Jeff introduced Barbara to the two tools they were demonstrating – the Wing Clipper and the Hunter’s Star. It wasn’t love at first sight. You see, Barbara was (and still is) a very talented machine quilter but wasn’t much of a piecer – she mostly found it difficult and frustrating.
Having the right tools changed everything! Barbara began making quilts she never thought possible – Hunter’s Stars, Flying Geese, Lemoyne Stars – and the list goes on and on. She began working at the quilt shows as part of the Studio 180 Design team. And what she enjoyed most was teaching quilters how to use the tools and share all the other quilting hints and tips she learned.
Barbara has been teaching at guilds, shops, retreats and quilt shows for the past 6 years. Her teaching style is relaxed, informative and fun! She enjoys teaching quilters of all skill levels and shares many tips and ideas that make piecing easier, faster and more accurate.
