Designer Profile

Nan Baker of Purrfect Spots

"My combined love of animals and needlework inspired the creation of my company, PURRFECT SPOTS in 1996. My lifelong love of stitching led me to design cross stitch and needlepoint patterns for publication. I started quilting in 2003. My quilting designs have appeared in many of the major quilt publications, including The Quilt Pattern Magazine, Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, and on I am a pattern designer for several major fabric companies including Northcott. I have taught Quilt Classes at shops and also at International Quilt Market for several years.

I have a degree in Marketing and am the Marketing Director for The Quilt Pattern Magazine (TQPM). I spearheaded the TQPM Kennel Quilt program which makes Kennel Quilts for shelter pets that have been affected by disasters. This project is sponsored by numerous quilt industry partners and the Petfinder Foundation. I have taught Quilt Classes at shops and also at International Quilt Market for several years.

I was a member of the Disaster Animal Response Team for The Humane Society of the United States and worked hurricanes, fires, floods and tornadoes. As a result of my disaster work, I created The CASEY Plan (Caring for Animals Safely in Emergencies during the Year) which is a nationwide program. This plan can be found on my website. Please feel free to download and share. A portion of my sales is donated to helping animals in disasters.

I live in Florida with my husband. I have taken care of many kitties and puppies over the years that have appeared at my door. I have just one kitty now.

If you have extra fabric left over from my patterns, please make Kennel Quilts to help our furry friends! You can find free Kennel Quilt patterns here:"
