About Us

Nellie formed her company "originellie's" in 1999 while working at Annabelle's Quilt Shop in Brockville. She started designing some patterns to teach as classes in the store and before long was getting orders from other shops and requests from her students for more designs.

Nellie loves whimsical folk art style quilts especially ones that tell a story. Her methods of fusible appliqué make her projects manageable for any quilter at any skill level.

Nellie also enjoys working with wool and she carries a wonderful collection of wool patterns. She discovered wool almost 20 years ago while visiting family in California and appreciates the rich colours and softness of the material.

For larger quilts Nellie loves a scrappy look and her philosophy is "the more fabric the better!" Click on "Fat Quarter Friendlies" for some great patterns that use up all those fat quarters we love to collect.

Nellie believes that quilting should be fun and stress free. After all this is what we do in our leisure time! She designs patterns that are quick and easy and has been heard saying that for her "a quilt is not a life time commitment".

Nellie is passionate about teaching and welcomes inquiries about her teaching schedule. Her classes are always fun and informative. Visit www.originellies.com for a comprehensive downloadable teaching package.
