VANESSA GOERTZEN

Before Vanessa was even born, she was going to quilt shops with her mother.
As a child, she and her brothers were surrounded by shelves full of fabric,
the constant whir of her mother's Bernina, and piles of patterns ready for
mailing. Is it any wonder that she made her first quilt as a teenager?
Vanessa never made any plans to follow in her mother's footsteps, but
somehow the fates decided differently. When Vanessa was expecting her first
child, she started quilting again. She found that creating her baby girl's
first quilt was an intoxicating experience--and she couldn't stop! Vanessa
started a pattern company in 2010 called Lella Boutique and has published
dozens of patterns to date. Vanessa has always been drawn to the beautiful
fabrics of Moda, and began the joyful experience of designing fabric for
them in 2013. In addition to her design work, Vanessa has two active
children, Olive and Lorenzo, who also like making things and keep life
interesting down in St. George, UT.
