About Calico Carriage Quilt Designs®
Debbie's Quilting Adventure
Meet Debbie Maddy
I'm Debbie Maddy, designer, teacher and founder of Calico Carriage Quilt Designs.
I love fabric, sewing—and quilters! I design patterns for quilts that are visually stunning but easy to make. Since 1993, I've also shared my enthusiasm for quilting with others through teaching throughout the country. I was a 2013 and 2015 Nominee for Teacher of the Year by the International Association of Quilting Professionals.
Calico Carriage got rolling in 2005, the same year I was invited to California to tape an episode of Simply Quilts for HGTV. Today, my patterns are sold all over the world, with priority to sales to independent quilt shop owners.
In my simple, accurate No Diamonds / No "Y" Seams technique, there are no fussy bias edges and all the quilt assembly is done with straight-line sewing. Instructions are written in an easy-to-follow style, with cutting, layout and piecing diagrams to ensure success. Using my patterns, novice quilters can confidently make beautiful old-style quilts, while experienced quilters can enjoy fast, easy piecing with striking results.
Calico Carriage also has a line of patterns for the modern quilter and table runner patterns with a contemporary flair. I offer a popular class on working with silk, as well.
Our Philosophy is Simple
At Calico Carriage, we believe quilting should be easy and fun! Our patterns and books are written and illustrated in an easy-to-follow style, so you can just read and sew, and love the quilts you make!
