Teacher Spotlight

Karen Brow-Meier

I’m Karen, the designer for Java House Quilts patterns. I so enjoy sharing techniques for creating movement, interest, gorgeous colors and personality in quilts! I incorporate appliquéd and pieced animals with character and charm in my designs which I think allows both adults and children to connect with a quilt on a personal and emotional level.


My programs and lectures are about sophisticated color, movement and some uniquely innovative techniques. The Smuggle Principles which explain my” seven design elements which make a quilt sing” has been my most popular lecture this last year. I’d welcome the chance to discuss tailoring an inspiring, and informative program for your guild via Zoom or in person.


I’ve been publishing patterns for over 20 years and have over 65 designs in print. I exhibit at major shows and have been thrilled to engage with quilters and guilds via Zoom these past months.
