Meet The Designer: Phyllis Dobbs
Phyllis Dobbs was enticed into designing quilts by a love of fabric and design, combined with a family history of quilt making. Surrounded by stacks of quilts sewn by her great-grandmothers, grandmother and aunt, she is constantly inspired by tradition but loves to put fun and unexpected twists into her designs. After years of designing quilts for books and magazines, Phyllis turned her artistic talents into designing fabrics that, along with her quilt designs, are influenced by her sense of whimsy and love of vibrant colors. Her art is also licensed for gift, home décor and garden products. A graduate of the University of Alabama, Phyllis lives in Birmingham, Alabama, with her husband and cat. To see more of Phyllis’ designs, visit her blog at Phyllisdobbs.info and her web site at Phyllisdobbs.com.
