April Educator of the Month – Kate Quinn

Congratulations to Kate Quinn
Our Sew Steady Featured Educator for April


“My fascination with quilting began when I received a Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt as a wedding present in 1991. The gift of a second scrappy quilt further solidified my love of fabrics and colors. I made my first quilt to celebrate the birth of my first child around 1993. I had loved quilting ever since. I love all styles and types of quilts from art to modern, from traditional pieced to applique. I also love how quilting is a connection through the ages and across generations.
I love sharing my passion for quilting and art, passing on a centuries old tradition, and creating beautiful items of comfort.  Let’s start FabriKating your next quilt!” – Kate


Kate has brought a wealth of knowledge, creativity and fun to the Sew Steady Team and Westalee Design Templates.  With an eye for detail, color, and design Kate’s projects and style of teaching have motivated so many quilters and sewers alike to start using Westalee Design Templates and Rulers for their projects.

What some students have to say about Kate:

“This was my first time meeting Kate ( though virtually). Not everyone has the gift of being able to teach, Kate has it. I look forward to further my education signing up for more classes. I feel more confident in trying rulers and knowing the right tools to use.” Inde

“Kate is so calm and makes everything look easy enough that I feel like I can do this. I learn something new each time I watch this video or others that she has on social media.” cl

“Kate couldn’t be more wonderful! As a life-long educator, I recognize great teaching and that is Kate in a nutshell. She has an easy way about her, shares tips and tricks, and her pace is just right. Not only that, but she is willing to answer questions outside of class. First rate!” Jane Moore

  1. Congratulations, Kate – you are so talented and your videos are so inspiring and help in so many ways – I learn something new in each time I watch – keep up what you are doing – your love for quilting and sharing is fantastic.

  2. Kate is inspiring. She is so talented, and shows us that even the pros make mistakes, so I don’t get so stressed about my own.She has given me the confidence to use rulers when a few months ago, I didn’t own a single one. I love her videos. I am not on Facebook, so I eagerly await Youtube releases!

  3. I have taken a few of Kates classes. She is ‘Awsome”, so patient, explains everything, so patient and a real natural at teaching. I just love her. My only regret is she is on the other side of the country, or I would be sitting in the classroom with her.

  4. Educator of the month???? Not surprising!! I started watching Kate during the pandemic a year ago, and can hardly wait for the next weekend to catch her demonstrations! I never knew that I could do so much with rulers! Her explanations are so concise and clear, she makes it fun to watch, and never minds admitting a slight mishap herself! “Oh well, who cares???? “

  5. I love watching and learning from Kate. She is exceptional at what she does. Her enthusiasm is addicting. Makes you want to jump right in and practice what she has shown. Look forward to all her lessons. Thank you Kate!

  6. I have truly enjoyed your classes. They are so filled with useable information that I can apply much of it to quilting I need to get done! Your demonstrations impress me with your creativity, and your willingness to “push the limits” on the design process. Very easy to get “hooked” on your style, enthusiasm, and creativity! Thanks to “honey”, also.

  7. So happy to have you as one of my favorite instructors. The work you do is so beautiful and it teaches me so much about “other” uses for these templates!
    You have allowed me to use them (your techniques) in quilting some of the quilts I have been waiting to get quilted. You are a very great and practical instructor, even though you get me into trouble. Buying more rulers, etc, etc. Very easy to listen to and follow. Thanks for all the sharing of your talents!

  8. Kate is a great teacher and she is very thorough when she is teaching the ruler classes. She never holds back in telling exactly how to hold the templates and how to adjust fabric for a more successful project. Congratulations, Kate, and please continue your wonderful classes.

  9. I absolutely loved the beginning ruler workshop with Kate Quinn. She was so enthusiastic, organized and shared so much information. She had sectioned off her sewing fabric with chalk for the various ruler demonstrations. I was taking notes so as to not miss anything and found myself purchasing a number of items that she mentioned that will be so handy to have on hand.
