Marje Rhine, Pattern Editor Marje Rhine, Pattern Editor

Marje made her first quilt in 1969 (she was very young!) and has been hooked ever since. She quilted all through her career as a mainframe systems programmer and IT manager. In 2000, Marje left her IT position at NIKE to concentrate on a career as a teacher, longarm quilter, and owner of a pattern business, Quilt Design Northwest. She is the author of Painless Paper Piecing, and most recently her quilt CARLEY was a finalist in the 2007 "Do You EQ?" contest. Marje enjoys sports, reading, and spending time with her husband, Randy, and their dogs at home in Damascus, Oregon.
