Barbara Jones has been designing quilts since she started making them more than 20 years ago. Her quilts reflect her signature style – whimsical, fun and appliqued. She now designs the fabrics that make her quilts easily identifiable. Her fabric lines are Ellery by Marcus Brothers and, more recently, Bubblegum Basics and Simply Sweet by Henry Glass & Co.
In 2004, she switched careers from molecular biology to start her pattern company, Quilt Soup. The Quilt Soup logo says homemade soups and handmade quilts. She likes both because they come from the heart. She includes a free recipe in every pattern. Quilt Soup offers kits for quilts made from her fabric.
