Enjoy the wonderful world of | simple |easy | practical | patchwork.

Hi and welcome. My name is Karen Ackva. I am an American quilter living my dreams in Southern Germany. I started quilting in Germany almost two decades ago when I wanted to make my first German nephew a baby quilt. I asked my sister to send me some fabric from the United States since I had NO CLUE where to find it here in Germany. It was a very simple Winnie the Pooh "Krabbeldecke" or baby blanket with a coordinating pillow in bright colors. Since then, I have found my true profession of a quilt designer, instructor, author, and quilt pattern writer/publisher. I love learning new techniques and love to share them even more.


My philisophy is | simple | easy | practical - if it doesn't fall into one of those categories, I problably won't make it or design it.


Why did I pick the name easypatchwork? It is my goal and commitment to take deas, techniques & patterns, take them apart, simplify and put them them all back together again. I put the easy in patchwork.
