Janet Nesbit
One Sister Designs

Lecture and workshops

Supply list for workshops

Janet Nesbitt is the owner of ONE S1STER LLC, a web-based quilt design company, online retailer and wholesaler.

You may be more familiar with the quilt store/pattern design business she ran with her sister for 18 years - Buggy Barn Quilts in Reardan, WA, as well as designing Buggy Barn's popular line of quilt patterns and Henry Glass & Co. fabric collections. That same "crazy piecing/string piecing" style carries into the ONE S1STER designs.

Says Janet,
I've always been an avid scrap quilter with a passion for mixing prints and plaids that incorporate a unique sense of color. As I head into a new phase in my career, I look forward to focusing more of my time on creating fun and whimsical designs through my popular "crazy" piecing technique (stacking fabric, cutting on the lines, shuffling, and stitching it all together). This trademark piecing method is easy and forgiving, ensuring quilting success for stitchers of all levels.
