My Sew Quilty Life
A motto I live by is: “You never know what you are capable of until you try.” It’s the same motto I used to make my biggest dream come true–designing fabric for Moda Fabrics!
Hello, I’m Heather Briggs, the quilt pattern and fabric designer under my brand, My Sew Quilty Life. Although I have been sewing most of my life and designing professionally in a different industry for many years, I didn’t start quilting until 2017. Before leaving my career as an Architectural Designer in May 2021, I designed hospitals and healthcare facilities all over the United States. It was during my time obtaining my Masters degree and in my architecture career where I learned so many vital skills that would later lead me to develop a successful brand in the quilting industry.
I created My Sew Quilty Life during the pandemic in 2020 after daydreaming about what my own creative business could look like, bridging my passion for quilting and design. Even though I no longer design buildings, there are so many similarities between architecture and quilt design. I love working with simple shapes to create unique, detailed quilt designs that are feminine and romantic.
I am inspired by nature and have become obsessed with designing floral quilts. Some people even call me “the flower quilt queen.” I’ll take it! My style is traditional with a modern touch. It’s no surprise when I began designing fabrics that I wanted to design floral fabrics that were soft, sweet, and feminine to go with my floral quilt designs.
Fabric design felt like the natural next step in my career. I have been a fabric addict for a long time. I can remember rummaging through my grandmother's linens and sneaking into my mother’s fabric bin when I was a little girl. I currently live in the beautiful state of South Carolina with my husband (aka Mr. My Sew Quilty Life), my son Seth, and my dog Rex. I love my little family. They are so supportive of all my crazy ideas, and give me that extra push to try to be the best version of myself every day. Not a day goes by that we don’t talk about quilts or fabric.
I am so excited to watch my style develop with each fabric collection, but I’m even more excited to see what everyone will create with my fabrics. I have so many wonderful things planned–I cannot wait for you to follow me along in my journey.
