Wendy Sheppard, originally from Southeast Asia, began her career as a chemical engineer. In 2005, with encouragement from a friend and no prior experience, she made her first quilt. Needless to say, that delve into quilting changed her career path.
Wendy's original designs have been featured in numerous publications, including The Quilter, Quilt Trends, American Patchwork & Quilting, Fons & Porter's® Love of Quilting, and many others. She also designs patterns for Benartex, RJR Fabrics, Quilting Treasures, and Island Batiks.
In addition to her design work, Wendy shares her free-hand and machine quilting designs and tips on her website and blog (ivoryspring.wordpress.com).
She resides in northern Virginia with her family.
