Hi! My name is Mary Pat "Mattie" Rhoades, and I am the President of Quiltsmart, Inc. I taught quilting for years and was always frustrated with fussy patterns and sewing methods that were tedious. It is with that feeling that Quiltsmart was born. One of the first patterns that was printed on interfacing was Quilt in a Day's Sunbonnet Sue. We still print this for Quilt in a Day. Many other patterns are also now printed on interfacing...some of our best sellers are Lone Star, and Double Wedding Ring. My goal is to make quilting fun, leaving behind the tedious work of the past, yet keeping the classic look of the quilts we all love. Though I'm far from a perfectionist, and can be quite content with mismatched seams, a side benefit of making quilting easier using printed interfacing is that it ends up being pretty darned accurate, too! So, quilting these traditionally-difficult quilts (like Lone Stars, Mariner Compasses, Dahlias) becomes pretty easy - easy enough for beginners to shine at the quilt guild show-and-tell!
