Few people have talents that range from painting, to cooking, sculpting, photography and quilting quite like Victoria Findlay Wolfe. But since she was a little girl, Victoria has always been creating. Her journey into quilting was inspired by her grandmother, Elda Wolfe, whose patterns, looking back, were ahead of their time. Victoria created a series of Double Wedding Ring quilts which are based on her happy childhood memories with her grandparents. Victoria’s talents extend beyond her amazing ability to create; she is also a teacher, a fabric and thread designer, an author of the popular quilting books, 15 Minutes of Play and Double Wedding Rings - Traditions Made Modern, a blogger and a lecturer as well. Making and giving quilts in her community quilt program, as well as spending time with her loving family, are Victoria’s greatest joys in life.

Victoria Findlay Wolfe's new Geese Crossing die brings a geometric, modern twist to the traditional Geese crossing pattern. This die allows you to easily build a "parts department" enabling you to create a two colored quilt quickly and efficiently. What sets this Geese Crossing die apart from the tradition Geese Crossing pattern is that the Geese shape is stubbed nose, which allows for fast chain piecing! With lots of variations to play with, this block can be put together in a variety of ways! Check out Victoria's how-to video to make your own Geese Crossing quilt with our Big Shot Fabric Series machine!
Victoria's new Hex Star die is definitely a star of her new dies this year, working perfectly with our new Big Shot Plus Fabric Series Machine!
