Emily Breclaw began her quilting journey in college. She and her sister saw a magazine picture of a yo-yo quilt and decided to make their own. Several years, and several thousand yo-yo’s later, they both had gorgeous quilts and fabric addictions.
Since then, Emily has created over a hundred quilts for family members, charity work and customers. She has also taught introductory quilting classes. In 2010, she began playing with hexagons and looking for unique ways to use them. In 2011, she began The Caffeinated Quilter to promote her innovative hexagon designs. Her patterns have been featured in magazines including Stitch, Quiltmaker and American Quilter. Her first book, Adventures in Hexagons, was published by C&T Publishing in 2017.
When not in her studio quilting, Emily enjoys spending time with her five kiddos, volunteering with scout programs at the school, and gaming with her wonderful husband.
