Where I Sew – John Adams of Quilt Dad + Fat Quarterly

on Jul 28, 2012 in Sewing, Where I Sew | 51 comments

John Adams is a father of 3 who enjoys sewing and quilting in his spare time.

Inspired by the growing number of crafting blogs and the emergence of vibrant, modern quilting fabrics in the textile industry, John convinced his wife to teach him how to use her sewing machine in 2004 and hasn’t looked back. He started his popular blog, Quilt Dad, in 2008 to share his love of patchwork with others.

Since then, John has become very active in online quilting communities. Today, he applies his modern quilting aesthetic by designing quilt patterns for both fabric designers and companies and contributing frequently to creative blogs, books and other collaborative endeavors. John is also a co-founder of the popular e-magazine for modern quilters, Fat Quarterly.

John was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, and currently lives in Holly Springs, North Carolina, with his family, which includes twin daughters Megan and Bevin and son Sean. He earned his undergraduate and master’s degrees at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and, when he isn’t sewing, enjoys cheering for the UNC Tar Heels.
