Christine Baker & Nellie Holmes
In 2004, designers and friends Christine Baker (Fairfield Road Designs) and Nellie Holmes (originellie’s) formed a joint company, Upper Canada Quiltworks Publishing Co. so that they could publish books and patterns that they co-design.
Their first book, Rag Bags©, released in 2004, was a huge hit. It features patterns for 12 different tote bags all made using the rag technique.
Their second book Rag-a-Muffins©, was released in 2005. It contains lots of projects to make for children such as rag quilts, fusible applique wall hangings and accessories.
Their third book Celebrate Canada©, was released in 2016. It contains a wonderful collection of projects to make using Northcott’s new “Oh Canada” line of fabrics.
They’ve designed over 50 patterns for Northcott, to showcase their new fabric lines, and a beautiful Block of the Month called “Tweets & Twinkles”.
At Quiltworks Studio, Christine and Nellie teach a variety of different quilting and creative workshops in a homey environment.
