Anita LaHay is the quilter and crafter behind Daydreams of Quilts. She started quilting in 1997 when her husband (then boyfriend) went to Bosnia on a six month peacekeeping mission with the Canadian military. Anita wanted something to pass the time. Now, as a military wife– three tours of duty and three kids later– she quilts to keep herself happy (and sane!) and her babies cozy and warm.

Anita graduated with a diploma in Journalism Arts from the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology and is most interested in writing about and photographing quilts and embroidery. (Wouldn’t you know?!) Anita is very active on Instagram (@daydreamsofquilts) and participates in many quilting and sewing swaps there as well as online bee groups.
