Meet the Designers


Corinne Sovey of Corinne Sovey Design Studio is a quilter, graphic designer and color enthusiast located in Austin, Texas. She aims to make quilts that blend the graphic patterns of the design world with the time-honored tradition of patchwork. A fan of both modern and traditional quilts, her designs are contemporary and achievable by quilters of any level who aren’t afraid to tackle new skills and expand their quilty knowledge! In addition to designing quilt patterns, Corinne enjoys creating modern art quilts that have been in several past and hopefully future Quiltcons!

When Corinne isn’t quilting she enjoys working as a graphic designer in the animal welfare industry, spending time with her rescue pomeranian puppy, Buttons, and relaxing in the pool on hot Texas days.
