The Educator: Corinne Sovey
I am a graphic designer, quilter, and color enthusiast. I aim to make colorful quilts that blend the graphic patterns of the design world with the time-honored tradition of patchwork. With great attention to detail, each quilt is designed with graphic purpose and balance. I try to make contemporary quilts inspired by design, but achievable by today’s quilter.
I have been quilting for almost a decade. I grew up the daughter of a quilter and have always had crafting in my blood. I’m a fan of both modern and traditional quilts, and like seeing how the two styles can work together. I often refer to my style as “Graphic Quilting” because I like bold, graphic shapes and bright colors. I am thrilled to also be part of the BERNINA 2021 class of ambassadors!
With my graphic design and crafty background, I feel quilting is something I was meant to do. I can spend hours on my computer designing a million quilts, or days in my sewing room working on a project. I enjoy learning new techniques and challenging myself to do things the hard way. I also enjoy the challenge of writing patterns that people will find easy to follow, regardless of their skill level.

The Project: Sun Swept
Introducing the “Sun Swept” quilt pattern, an exquisite and vibrant design that encapsulates the essence of a beachy getaway, the allure of a tropical paradise, and the calming embrace of the ocean waves. This quilt pattern draws inspiration from the intricate patterns found in traditional ceramic tiles, but with a refreshing twist that transports you to the heart of a luxurious cruise adventure.
Quilters will have multiple kit color palettes to choose from, ensuring that the quilt reflects their idea of bold and beautiful. The pattern has piecing options that make the quilt achievable for the confident beginner, or more adventurous instructions for advanced piecers who like a challenge.
Whether draped across a cozy armchair, displayed proudly on a wall, or used to adorn a bed, the “Sun Swept” quilt pattern invites you to embark on a visual and sensory journey. It captures the romance of a cruise adventure, the tranquility of the ocean, and the lush beauty of a tropical paradise, all woven together into a masterpiece of fabric and imagination.
