About Me

I have one rule about quilting - it's supposed to be fun. Looking for staid or typical? You won't find it here.

As a mostly scrappy designer, I prefer to dig into my stash to create designs and patterns that appeal to my senses of color and value, using as many different fabrics as possible.

My penchant for scraps and my need to use as many fabrics as possible in my quilts led me in 2017 to develop the Accordion Sewn HSTs™ method of creating half square triangles that don't have a match and yet waste no fabric. Delving into the method further, I discovered "ordering" the accordions could lead to the creation of whole blocks and quilts from a single accordion. My first book on the method "Oompah! Jazz Up Your Scrap Quilts With Accordion Sewn HSTs™" was published in 2018, and "Another Round of Oompah" was published in 2020. It's been called "life-changing," "magical," "addictive," and, her favorite, "witchcraft," and is the basis for many of my most popular lectures and workshops.

Since founding EvaPaige Quilt Designs in 2005, I've published a vast range of scrappy patterns and my work has been featured in various quilting magazines and on well known quilting websites. As a traveling quilt teacher, I've visited guilds coast to coast and taught at national and regional quilt shows, and never I'll never tire of the ah-ha moments and banter of a classroom full of quilters.

My Workshop

Do you love quilting? Do you love a gorgeous frozen drink? Pour some fabric scraps into your margarita glass and learn or perfect your Accordion Sewn HSTs™ when you join me for some scrappy fun combining these two loves! I'll talk about fabric selections, teach you the Accordion Sewn HSTs™ method - which will change your life and you'll never go back to making half square triangles another way again, but I digress - and you'll end up with an adorable frozen beverage block. I promise we will be done in time for happy hour!
