Toby took her first quilting class in 1985, along with her mother, from the renowned Jackie Robinson, who owned the quilt shop in St. Louis. After the six-week class she got the quilting bug. In 1995, she starting working in a quilt shop and began to teach quilting, design her own quilts, and enter contests. In 2005, she won a first place prize in the First Entry, Wall division for "her masterpiece," Celestial Crowns, featured in the AQS 2006 calendar. In 2007 and 2008 she was asked to teach at the Houston Quilt Festival.
An award-winning quilter, pattern designer, and quilt teacher, she enjoys the whole process. "I love taking a group of fabrics and creating a unique design that shows off the collection." Her entries into the Hoffman Challenge in 1996 were accepted in the traveling shows and she won a second place prize in 1997 for the pieced division. Her skill and unique style have been recognized by many of the major fabric companies, such as Timeless Treasures, Hoffman, and P&B, who regularly commission her to design quilts for them.
She considers herself a traditional quilter with a twist. "I use traditional blocks to create quilts that look difficult but that anyone can make." Her patterns and designs can be found in quilt shops, on the web, and in many of the national quilting magazines such as McCall's Quilting, The Quilter, and Quilt. She was featured in Miniature Quilt Magazine and wrote articles for Quilter's World.
Toby runs her own business, Gateway Quilts & Stuff, Inc. and has a website, gatewayquiltsnstuff.com, where her patterns and workshop descriptions can be found.
