Thank you for visiting my site!
I am The YEG Quilter, Sheila Van Der Linden. I live a beautiful life, with my amazing man, and our glorious kids!
I am intentional about designing quilt patterns that will bless the piecer and the sleeper under the quilt. I love designing and you can buy my patterns at Sparrow Quilt Co.
I have been quilting at Sparrow Quilt Co. for a few years, since September of 2011. I jokingly say that moving into the Studio was the second best decision I ever made, my first of course is marrying Ron!
I love to quilt, I love to quilt for other people. I also love to design quilts. I very rarely follow a pattern to the letter. I love the stories behind the quilts, they are so interesting. Everyone has a story, and every story is unique.
I have had an amazing opportunity through the studio of taking classes from world renowned teachers. Matt Sparrow, Joanne Flamand, Claudia Pfeil, Jamie Wallen, Karen McTavish, Judi Madsen, Ricky Tims, Karlee Porter, Lisa Calle, and Jacqueline Dejong. I love to see the different design techniques from each teacher, and this will always be a part of my learning and growing as a quilter.
I now have my own studio in my basement, it will soon be ready! My husband Ron and my son in law Ben are working hard to finish it beautifully. You can check out the progress on my business Facebook page, The YEG Quilter.
Stop by the Edmonton Studio, Sparrows Quilt Co, we would love to meet you and hear your quilting stories!
