Elizabeth Chappell of Quilters Candy
In 2015, I met a dear friend, Tracy. We dreamed up all sorts of things to do together: building tables, starting a tween makeup brand, and eventually, starting a Quilter's monthly subscription box. It was a natural fit as her mom and sister design fabric and quilt patterns, and quilting was something Tracy taught me all about. This was such a fun adventure to start with a friend, and one that led me headfirst into the quilting world.
For one year, starting in 2016, Tracy and I worked together to bring Quilters Candy Box into the world. It was a fun and exciting adventure, but Tracy and her family ended up moving away. Quilters Candy Box then became a business I ran by myself. Along with curating a monthly box, I made more and more quilts, learning how to make my quilts look like those I saw others make. Their points and corners were touching. Their quilt tops were square, flat, and looked beautiful. I met some amazing friends along the way who helped me learn quilting tips. I practiced and practiced and started loving the results I was getting.
As I worked on other's quilt patterns, I realized I had quilt patterns in my mind that I wanted to create. I dove in and searched and worked to create my own quilt patterns. I have loved writing quilt patterns, being a part of this online quilting community, and recently starting my own quilting community, the Quilters Candy Membership. I have found a niche in the world that I love, and I hope to help you enjoy quilting as much as I do!
