Hello and welcome to my blog, The Hutch!
I’m Mary Ann Hutchinson, a creative long arm quilter, pattern designer and travel enthusiast.
As a writer, quilter, teacher, and travel enthusiast, my passion is fueled by fabric, design, people and places. I help other quilters like me, discover the amazing and beautiful world of quilts and travel.
It is my goal is to share the many things I’ve learned over the years with quilters of all skill levels but especially beginners. I believe everyone can learn to elevate their skills to create the quilts of their dreams. Also, I love the USA and enjoy traveling to every state plus a few other locations around the world.
You deserve to create the quilt you imagined when you first walked into the quilt shop and saw that fabric, pattern or sample that inspired you to start quilting. I believe your quilt matters because your quilt tells your story.
Here on my blog, I share it all. Successes and failures. Mistakes and resolutions. Discoveries and experiences. Problems and solutions. Tackle your UFO stack, because you know you have one, as I attack mine, because you know I have one. ? Quilting is a journey and it has always been a part of my travels. I combine both of my passions here and share them with you.
My business is long arm quilting and pattern design. If you are ready to add the finishing touches to your quilt by having your quilt top quilted, please consider my long arm quilting services. I’m here to help.
