About Me

Hi!  I'm Amber.


I'm so happy you're here! 
I'd like to welcome you to my little piece of Blogland.  

A Little Bit Biased was established in 2008 when a friend told me I should start a blog to showcase all of the projects I was working on.  It began with a silly little name that had absolutely nothing to do with quilting.  And then one day, I thought, I need a new name ~ something quilt related.  So, I did a quick brainstorming session and when I thought of the word "bias"
(because I love striped bindings on the bias)
I knew I had my name.

I'm a thirty-something wife to an amazing husband and the mother to two busy little cuties (ages 10 and 7).  I'm a Mormon.  I'm a quilter.  I'm a pattern designer.  I'm a runner.  I have a new-found love for soccer and dogs.  And I firmly believe in having sweets every day.  I was born in California, grew up in Washington state and having been living here in Utah since 1997.

I started quilting a few months after I got married (in 1998).  I asked my grandmother (who is an avid, award-winning quilter) if she would teach me how to quilt.  Of course, she was thrilled to have someone in the family who actually wanted to learn how.  We made wonderful memories as we worked on my first quilt together.  It took me about 3 years to complete it  (LOL) but after that I was hooked!  She gave me my first thimble and she is also the namesake of my quilt pattern design company called Gigi's Thimble.  Her name is Delma but her great-grandchildren call her Gigi (pronounced Gee-Gee).

Gigi's Thimble was born in 2009. 

I'd say my design style is traditional with a hint of mod.  I love happy quilts and fabrics.  I think when you make a quilt it should be an enjoyable, creative process and I think the finished quilt should make you smile.


Thank you for stopping by my little piece of Blogland today.
I do hope you'll stay and look around for a while.
Feel free to leave me a comment or shoot me an email. 
I'd love to hear from you and I try to respond as often as I can :)

Happy Quilting!
