Amanda Murphy is a quilt and fabric designer whose style bridges the modern and traditional. She is a BERNINA Quilting and Longarm Spokesperson, national teacher, has a popular independent pattern line, and designs fabric collections for Contempo of Benartex Fabrics and embroidery collections for OESD.

She has authored several books for C&T publishing including the best-selling Free-Motion Quilting Idea Book and the new Rulerwork Quilting Idea Book.

Amanda enjoys every part of the quilting process, from designing fabrics, to integrating piecing and appliqué techniques, to the quilting itself.

But the best part of her job is seeing people use her fabrics, books, and patterns to create their own works of art!
