Atkinson Designs is a family-run quilt pattern business known for having simple, clean designs and easy to follow instructions. Terry designs the quilts and writes all of the pattern instructions, and her husband Kirk is the business manager. Terry taught Home Ec for four years, adult quilting classes for 20 years, and even taught preschool! This teaching background is the reason her instructions are so easy to follow, they are written as if she is right there explaining it to you in class. Terry's attention span is pretty short (according to Kirk) so you know the quilts will be quick and easy. Terry always has new projects in the works, and her favorite quilt is always the one she is just starting. In addition to the business and her hobbies of quilting and knitting, Terry enjoys traveling with Kirk in her retro Shasta camper.
