Sue Bouchard has been quilting since she was 12 and sewing since she was 4. She began quilting before rotary cutters and self healing mats! Sue spent over 25 years at Quilt in a Day. She loves making and designing modern quilts. Her passion is teaching and inspiring others on their creative journey!
Sue Bouchard not only creates original quilts, she has also taught classes at Quilt in a Day, quilt guilds, festivals, Craftours, and more for over twenty years. She is lauded for her laid-back style and innovative block party designs.
When asked why she loves teaching, Sue said: "The most fulfilling part of teaching classes is the ability to explain a method or technique so each student understands and is successful. It is not just the mechanics of how is made, it is learning why things work and the basics of each step.
I love to see how proud they are and say “I can’t believe I actually made this quilt!”
Sue finds inspiration every where, with designs ranging from a pattern she made based on the upholstery in her oral surgeon's office to a piece she created after a trip to Egypt.
