Hi, I'm Tammy. I've been quilting since 1991. I've also taught at a variety of quilt shops as well as online, and design and self-publish my own quilt patterns under the label Tamarinis.
I'm no different than most quilters - I enjoy working with almost any fabric. But I must confess - my favorites (the one that will make me drool, and blow a carefully constructed budget) are batiks, bold prints, and chicken prints. Having a background in art and literature, another of my guilty quilty pleasures is finding ways to use “words” in my work, be it in the fabric itself or by adding them to the piece. I am a Georgia native and currently live in Acworth with my husband, children (when they come to visit!), one grumpy dog, and my favorite fat cats.
Under the label Tamarinis, my designs are regularly published in a variety of quilt magazines, including Quilt, McCall’s Quilting, American Patchwork and Quilting, Stitch, Fons and Porter's Love of Quilting, Quilty, Quilt It...Today, Sew It...Today, Stitch and Create and Decorate. I also work with some of the major fabric manufacturers designing projects to showcase and promote their fabric lines, including Northcott and Fabri-Quilt (you can find some of the Fabri-Quilt projects under the "Free Projects" link on the home page!!).
