Cute Quilts for Kids by Kristin Roylance has 9 different children's quilts that put a little spin on traditional quilts. The book also teaches basic appliqué and embellishing techniques, even how to put on binding. The instructions were clear and the pictures great… the Ladybug Landing quilt… was just too cute to pass up, so [I] gave it a try. I'd had some ladybug fabric in my stash for a while, and this was the perfect pattern for it. The pattern was very straightforward, and I was able to finish the quilt in a couple of days, which was a refreshing change of pace for me. Since I'm becoming more of a contemporary quilter, and like appliqué too, these quilts really appealed to me. --Mary at Mary Manson Quilts, March 2014

About the Author
Kristin's first introduction to quilting came while visiting her grandmother's home as a young child. She can remember sitting under a quilting frame, carefully pushing a needle up for her sister to pull through from the top. They were quite the team! She remembers going home with bandages on each and every fingertip, but she still couldn't wait to try it again. Her next notable quilting experience also included bandages...this time with a trip to the emergency room. Rotary blades can be very dangerous! She's learned a lot since then and rarely require Band-Aids these days.
Kristin started her pattern company, Cute Quilt Patterns, in 2008. She's enjoyed the many friendships that come from daily interactions with fellow quilters. She loves having the opportunity to share her designs and see the creativity the designs inspire.
Kristin feels blessed to live on a beautiful hillside of the Wasatch mountains in Utah with her amazing husband and six energetic, quilt-toting children.
