One of Australia’s leading patchwork, quilting, and fabric designers, Lynette Anderson has a sophisticated naïve design style sought after around the world. Since 1995, Lynette has created countless patterns including quilts, pillows, bags, sewing accessories, and buttons. She has published a dozen books, and designed about 30 fabric collections. Inspired by childhood memories and other moments in time, Lynette’s designs are unique because they always start with her original pencil line drawings. Lynette now splits her time between designing at her home, studio, and shop, “Little Quilt Store”, on the beautiful Sunshine Coast in Queensland, Australia. In 2018, Lynette was honorably chosen to be an International Quilt Artist and held a special exhibition at the Tokyo Quilt & Stitch Show. One of her greatest passions is traveling and teaching around the world.
Lynette’s first professionally published book, It’s Quilting Cats & Dogs, was for David & Charles in 2010 and is filled with heart-warming designs, that combine simple but stunning hand stitchery with traditional patchwork and quilting. This was followed by Country Cottage Quilting’, Stitch It for Christmas, Stitch It for Autumn, Stitch It for Spring and Country Style Quilting’. In 2019, two books, Nautical Quilts: 12 Stitched and Quilted Projects Celebrating the Sea by F&W Media International and Lynette’s Best-Loved Stitcheries: 13 Cottage-Style Projects You’ll Adore by Martingale were released.
