Natalie is the owner of beyond the reef. She started her pattern design company one rainy North Shore morning while drinking coffee with author Jill Marie Landis, on a lanai in Hanalei, Kauai. After a successful career in the demanding commercial architectural/interior design field in Los Angeles, Natalie decided it was time to step out in faith, live her dream, and put her talents to work in another area. She has never looked back.

Natalie is the proud author of A Modern Twist: Create Quilts with a Colorful Spin, published this year by Martingale/TPP. She has a free project for you plus FIVE chances to win a free copy, coming up next. These days you’ll find Natalie in the studio in sunny Southern California, or out and about with Buddy-Dog. You’ll also find her in your classroom, at your guild or signing books at an event near you.
