Meet the Author

Geesje Baron, co-owner/operator of a dairy farm west of Winnipeg, Manitoba, has taught quilting since 1999. She and her co-author of 3-D Folded Blocks are originally from the Netherlands. She enjoys the challenge of making new patterns and passing on tips and tricks to students. She currently does custom machine quilting and markets custom-dyed and painted fabric (www.conundrumquilts.com). This is their first book.

Esther Vermeer, owner of a farm in rural Manitoba, rediscovered her love of sewing in 2000 following a chance meeting with co-author Geesje Baron. She designs and makes quilts and teaches workshops on a variety of subjects. 3-D Folded Blocks, the first book for both women, is a complete collaboration, a pooling of the ideas and abilities of two very talented quilters.
