Judy Martin


Judy Martin

Judy Martin is a longtime quilt maker, a prolific and influential quilt designer, and author of 22 quilting books. While her work clearly shows a familiarity with and appreciation for traditional quilts, it is strikingly original. Her designs are favorites around the world. Many of Judy’s original designs, such as “Colorado Log Cabin,” “Tennessee Waltz,” “Shakespeare in the Park,” “Monet’s Wedding Ring,” and “Snake River Log Cabin” are considered classics.

In a quilting environment that stresses quick and easy projects, Judy Martin is one of the few traditional-style designers and authors to continue to offer food for thought for intermediate and advanced quilters. Judy’s focus is on enabling quilters to improve their craft, expand their horizons, and increase their enjoyment of the art.

Judy has influenced a whole generation of designers and quilt makers. She has introduced many to the joys of quilt making, taught the skills to succeed in the craft, and nudged quilters to experience the thrill of creating original quilts. Judy Martin has made it her life’s work to share her passion for quilting.

Judy makes her home in Grinnell, Iowa. Since leaving her job as editor at Quilter’s Newsletter Magazine and Quiltmaker, Judy has spent the last 26 years working at home with her husband, publishing her books and raising their two now-grown children.
