Interviewed by Elizabeth Townsend Gard

Date March 2019

We met Latifah at Quilt Market in November 2018, and I am thrilled that she is willing to chat with us.

We wanted to know about her business and creation of tools, being an author, and creating YouTube videos.  Today we talk to her about the mechanics of being a professional pattern designer.
