Jo Morton is a quiltmaker, fabric designer, teacher, author, and lecturer. 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 complement both country and contemporary settings, and her work is included in private and public collections across the country.
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 the small 1929 bungalow where she lives.
Jo is known for her "Jo's Little Women Club" patterns, available through participating quilt shops since 2003. Her quilts have appeared in numerous magazines, and she's made several television appearances.
