Inspired to learn to sew when her son was born, Ann O'Connell searched for a simple way to try quilting without having to invest in all the supplies. Her quilt kits were the answer. They let curious quilters easily make an heirloom-quality baby quilt without having to buy all the expensive materials or figure out how to follow complicated patterns. In her past life, Ann was a lawyer and real estate broker. She resides in Boulder County, Colorado, where she enjoys the mountains and outdoor adventures.
