Dina Pappas sewed as a girl, but it wasn't until she was engaged to her soon-to-be husband that she made her first quilt. She crafted a queen-size quilt as a wedding present. Soon she was hooked and her quilting passion grew as she moved around the country with her Air Force pilot husband. Dina's quilting has been influenced by living in Arizona, California, Washington, Alabama, Michigan, and Alaska.
Dina is now an award-winning quiltmaker, shop owner, teacher, lecturer, author, and pattern designer. Her work led to the development of Pellon's Quilter's Grid, a preprinted interfacing for use with watercolor piecing. In addition to authoring three books, Dina owns her own ever-expanding quilt shop, Dina's Cozy Cabin Quilts, which has been in business since 1992. She has also appeared as a guest on HGTV's television program, Simply Quilts.
Dina lives in Eagle River, Alaska, where quilting is not limited to "long winter nights" but is a year-round passion. Endless summer days produce beautiful flowers for inspiration (and an occasional snack for the neighborhood moose). Dina enjoys her Alaska adventures with her husband Jim and their two sons, Jack and Charley.
