Elizabeth Hartman lives in Portland, Oregon at the edge of the Pacific Ocean. As far back as she can remember her family was always making things. When she grew up she decided to become an illustrator, but after her schooling she spent 10 years in the commercial mortgage field. As a twenty-first birthday gift she received a sewing machine with which she sewed many clothing items for her friends and she embroidered patches for school sports uniforms while attending university.
Rachael is present in most every issue of Simply Moderne since her quilt Bubbles made the cover of no. 1, but how can one resist her charm, her talent and the joy that radiates from all her quilts?
As a small Christmas gift, Rachael is offering you her playful Undercover Colour to make, which could almost be an Advent calendar as each small pocket can be lifted to discover a fun print on the lining; you could modify it by adding a little trinket to hide underneath or a love note for your sweetie!
Speaking of love, the one who makes Rachael’s eyes gleam is Mr. Daisy; hence her stage name Rachaeldaisy! They live in their small love-nest in the Blue Mountains about an hour west of Sydney.
