Kari Vojtechovsky of Quilts for the Making
Interviewed by Elizabeth Townsend Gard
Date March 2019
Kari is a pattern designer, an aware winning quilter, and took our first Copyright Workshop at QuiltCon! So, that's cool. We talk to her about her quilting life.
I am a mother, wife, graphic designer and quilter. My passion for quilting has been threaded through my career as a graphic designer and I find that they carry over from one to the other. I truly enjoy following quilting trends and new fabric lines, obsessively reading Instagram, magazines and books for new inspiration and dreaming up my next project. The rest of my time is filled by raising my young children, hanging out with friends and family, and exploring the world. I hail from a small town in the Midwest and now live near the beautiful Rocky Mountains. Quilting awards and publications include ribbons at QuiltCon, contributing to books and magazines, teaching, and self-publishing patterns under the name Quilts for the Making. You can find me on Instagram at @quiltsforthemaking, or patterns at my Etsy shop at www.quiltsforthemaking.com.
