About the Author

Martingale acquisitions editor Karen M. Burns started with the company as an office-tour guide (getting paid in quilt books), and then quickly worked her way into the heart of the company. After also being an account manager and a communications coordinator, she now spends her time inviting a variety of popular designers to create and contribute to Martingale books.

Karen has compiled many Martingale books and contributed to several more as a machine quilter, including A Baker's Dozen, Jelly Babies, and Quilting with Fat Quarters. With a stack of more than 30 of her own quilts at home ready to be quilted, Karen compares herself to the cobbler whose children have no shoes--she's the quilter with no finished quilts.
