Profile Information

Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
When I was a little girl, I had an insatiable desire to make things. Luckily, I come from a family that understood me all too well. My roots have been firmly planted by a talented, loving, generous European family that always put family first and strongly encouraged freedom of artistic expression. I have inherited the good fortune of learning from generations of artists, silversmiths, sculptors, poets, weavers, stained-glass artisans, and writers.

My maternal grandmother let me work the treadle part of the sewing machine while she sewed. My grandmother was a smart cookie. She found a way of giving an energetic little girl a way to have fun and participate. Soon she propped me on her lap and showed me how to sew.

I had my own needles, scissors, and threads before kindergarten and was taught to respect my tools. I remember my mother teaching me to crotchet, knit, and embroider. My father took me on adventures. I always had my little Instamatic camera in tow. My Christmas gifts were always about art, sewing, and creating. An artist’s easel, paints, brushes, paper, and my own art table were some of my favorite gifts. As an adult looking back, I am thankful for the thought and time my parents gave to nurturing my curiosity and love for art.

My whole life has always revolved around photography, writing, painting, and sewing. These interests have fueled my passion for travel, teaching, and sharing my experiences with people around the world. I have taught throughout the USA, the United Kingdom, Germany, Turkey, and Italy. I believe language is never a barrier in the translation of quilts.

Let the things you see in my book be a springboard for your imagination. Each pattern gives you choices – use commercial fabrics, paint your fabric, or do both!


Linda Poole lives with her husband Ray Williams and Corgi pup Zoie near Milford, Pennsylvania, a beautiful region in the northeastern part of the state. Together they share the passion of discovering the gifts of nature while hiking trails that lead to creeks, brooks, rivers, and lakes. Ray can be found with his fishing pole in hand with Linda by his side clicking away with her camera.

Just returned home from giving a lecture for The Friendship Quilt Guild in Hagarstown, MD. My drive down was 5.5 hours and gave me some good time to think and work out some new designs!
