Author Kelly Young of My Quilt Infatuation has been quilting for more than 20 years. Her tutorials are featured on FaveQuilts, and in 2018 she published her first book, Stash Statement. With a passion for making scrappy quilts, she tries to pack as many fabrics as possible into her designs. She loves blending carefree improv piecing with the comfortable structure of a quilt pattern, and this led her to further explore the improv technique in her books!
