Hi! I’m Amy Walsh, owner and designer at Blue Underground Studios, Inc. I am a former history teacher turned long-arm quilter turned pattern designer and art teacher. I started a love affair with color and all things pattern/fabric/quilting as a young girl watching my mom and grandmother sew their hearts out together and with friends. I started quilting in high school and continued on and off through college, whenever time allowed. Even when I didn’t have time to sew back then, I loved to take my tins of sewing out and look at each different fabric, dreaming about what things I could make.
Eventually my love for quilting led me to quit teaching and pursue quilting as more than just a hobby. I have been designing patterns since 2005 with an eye towards classic, timeless design. I am a fabric junkie and I don’t discriminate! I love old fabrics, new fabrics, solid fabrics, modern fabrics, bright and dark fabrics! You get the picture…I also LOVE color and have devoted the past several years to studying and teaching about it in both my art and quilting classes.
I have been so fortunate to meet many wonderful people as a designer – people who have inspired me by sharing their own love for color and design. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to meet many more of you in my upcoming classes!
When I’m not quilting, I love to spend time with my family. I also love to cook, bake and play the piano.
