Designer Profile

Kris Driessen of Phoebe Moon Designs

Kris started sewing when she was young, learning from her mother and grandmother. She made her first quilt when she was 16 as a wedding gift for a friend.

Kris began her love of antique quilts and vintage textiles at Hartwick College in Oneonta NY. There she was able to study women’s history and she quickly realized how much their lives were reflected in cloth. She started collecting old damaged and destroyed quilts so she could study the fabric and construction techniques. Later Kris did quilt restoration, using the fabric from those donor quilts. She still believes that the best way to learn is by touching and examining. If you ever attend one of her workshops, you will find yourself handling items that are hundreds of years old.

Kris started traveling and teaching with the Quiltbus in 1996. Her husband and daughter would work on the bus while she taught at the guild, museum, or historical society that had hired them. They traveled as far west as Colorado and as far south as Texas.

She started doing online quilt mysteries in 2004 and from that grew PhoebeMoon Quilt Patterns. Kris named this line of patterns for the brightest and most inventive of all the goddesses in Greek mythology.
