Blue Barn Quilt Co. is owned and operated by me, Linda Timms. I was born and raised a city girl but it was a dream of mine as a young girl to move to the country. Our family lives about 30 minutes west of Edmonton, Alberta by the North Saskatchewan River. And yes, we do have 2 blue barns on our beautiful farm!
I have been a quilter for over 20 years. What started out as wanting to make only one quilt has become a passion (obsession, depending on who you ask!) of mine.
I bought my longarm quilting machine in the winter of 2016 and have really enjoyed learning how to finish up all of my quilts.
I am wife to the talented builder of the timber frame blue barns on our farm and mom to 4 wonderful grown up kids. Blue Barn Quilt Co. came about as I started into a new chapter as all my kids were leaving home. It is a blessing and joy to have quilting as such an integral part of my life. I have taught many family members and friends how to quilt over the years. Many hours have been spent learning with a wide variety of talented teachers like Angela Walters (longarm quilter extraordinaire), Karen K Stone (award winning colour guru) and with the super talented Victoria Findlay Wolf in NYC. I love to learn and am always seeking new opportunities to expand my knowledge.
Blue Barn Quilt Co. is proud to have earned the Fons and Porter Certified Longarm Quilting Studio status by completing the extensive APQS free motion quilting course.
