About Dawn Heese :
Dawn Heese is a third-generation quilter and stitcher whose love for quilts began when she was a child. Not having known her great grandmother, she learned all about her through the quilt tops she left behind. Dawn’s grandmother would bring to life the daily happenings of their lives and how each scrap of precious feed sack was kept for a future quilt. This set the stage for Dawn’s future as a primitive folk quilter. Hand appliqué and hand quilting are foundational in her work and her inspiration is drawn from recalling the past, in both the execution process and feel. Dawn is the owner of, and pattern writer for, Linen Closet Designs and Author of 7 books.
