The Sweet Tea Girls Patterns

The Sweet Tea Girls are Southern in roots with sweet tea as a favorite beverage.  Her designs have been featured in numerous magazines as well as major quilting catalogue businesses such as Keepsake and Annie’s.  Many of her designs are being used by the fabric manufacturers in their current fabric collections.

Leigh Headington started The Sweet Tea Girls after finding she needed an outlet for her energy and creativity when she retired as an engineer from IBM. With a background in mathematics, mechanical engineering, and project management, Leigh is meticulous about her instructions and accuracy of information. She prefers symmetrical, balanced designs but loves designing a variety of bright, eclectic styles.  Her design tool of choice is EQ8 as it offers maximum opportunity to design and re-design based on fabrics and needs.

The company is named in honor of Leigh's grandmother, Sally McDonald, the true queen of 'Sweet Tea' who taught Leigh and her sisters to sew using those wonderful scraps from the attic. "She gave us the love of fabric and creation along with the desire to make sure everyone in our family slept beneath a ton of quilts"!

Between designing patterns and teaching classes, The Sweet Tea Girls stay very busy.
