About the Author:

Connie Chunn first began sewing at age 10, making clothes for her Barbie doll, and when she made her first quilt in 1975, she knew she'd found her niche. Classes with Doreen Speckmann taught her how to draft patterns, but it was her first class with Sharyn Craig that opened her eyes to all the amazing possibilities in the quilt world. Connie recently began specializing in miniature quilts, and her work has won awards in major quilt shows across the country and has been published several times. She became interested in quilt research when she discovered that several quilt and needlework patterns originated in the St. Louis, Missouri area. Her current interest is in documenting the history of quilting in this region of the country. She combines her innate curiosity of quilt history with her instinctive abilities to search out the details. Connie lives in Webster Groves, Missouri, with her biggest fan and supporter - her husband, Chris.
