Well known for her "Jo's Little Women Club" patterns, Jo Morton is a quiltmaker, designer for Moda Fabrics, teacher, and best-selling author. Her use of color and design, as well as her fine stitchery, gives her quilts the feeling of having been made in the nineteenth century. Her quilts have appeared in numerous magazines, and she's made several television and online appearances including on HGTV's Simply Quilts, PBS's Love of Quilting, and The Quilt Show.
In 1980 Jo took her first quilting class, and in 1985 she created her first "made to look old" quilt. She determined early on that if she ever hoped to make all the quilts she wanted to make, they would have to be small, and this size works perfectly in her tiny 1929 bungalow.
