I wanted to see what it was all about! From that first stitch I was hooked! Part exhilaration, part zen? I had it in spades! I spent the next eight years getting married, having three babies and moving five times to three different states and yes, quilting!
And my work has been published in many other books and magazines. In , the year I turned 42, I started this blog — 42 Quilts. Back then, I had a ridiculous idea that I would make 42 quilts in a year.

Lynn Doyle I am a farm kid from Northwest Iowa. I was a member of a 4H Club for 8 years.
During that time, I discovered color, texture and the love of fabric. Over the years, I worked at various quilt shops. The call of fabric was always there. I have met a lot of wonderful people over the years. Most of us know the call of fabric and I like to design patterns that are quick and easy to do and that amuse me. The biggest reward is to see people smile and laugh at my designs.
