Cathie Zimmerman is a full-time digital designer for Quiltable.She started piecing quilts 18 years ago. She fell in love with the piecing process but had trouble finding a longarm machine quilter to finish her quilts the way she envisioned them.
What to do…
Cathie purchased a longarm quilting machine and started finishing her own tops. Within a year, she felt comfortable enough with her skills to start quilting for others. She was able to hone her skills using a variety of printed pantographs, lots of free-motion, and finishing many custom quilts.
Flash forward through home longarm business, quilt-shop owner/operator, longarm educator, machine technician, and product test/development to today. It’s an unusual skill set and she feels blessed to have been able to apply this to Quiltable.
“I quilt, and I know things – that’s what I do.”
E2E or customized, finishing quilts is what it is all about. Cathie says she has the best career in the world, designing digital quilting patterns and coordinating the Quiltable web site designs. Living the dream!
