AQ Magazine: Patterns
Oak Leaf Swirl by Lynda Smith
Enjoy this free pattern from Lynda Smith’s book “Quilt This! Practical Patterns for Everyday Quilting.”
Lynda was born and raised in Paducah, Kentucky, home of the American Quilter’s Society—Quilt City USA®. It must have been destiny that landed her in her dream job as graphic designer for AQS. During her thirteen years with AQS, she has designed over 60 books and worked numerous quilt shows. She has learned a lot about quilting from some of the most notable quilters in the industry. A quilter at heart, Lynda was thrilled when her first-ever quilt, LOVELY PINK, was published in “Borders & Finishing Touches 2” by Bonnie K. Browning, American Quilter’s Society, 2006. Married for 29 years, Lynda and Donnie have two wonderful children, Brian and Michael, and two “fantabulous” grandsons, Tyler and Aidan.
