Karen started Happy Apple Quilts because she likes to create quilt designs. She rarely ever follows a quilt pattern preferring to "do her own thing." Happy Apple Quilts began as a pattern company and now has 24 published patterns.
Convenience panels are now a great element in quilting. Most fabric companies have beautiful panels as part of their collections. Karen has created several quilt designs that begin with a panel and feature other fabrics from the collection or great blenders from the same company. "Name Above All Names" panel by Blank Quilting has been extremely popular. Karen's wall hanging project is quick and easy. She added a simple border to compliment the beautifully cheerful artistry of Krista Hamrick. Happy Apple Quilts offers kits of the project on our website
