Leanne Anderson

Leanne Anderson, owner of The Whole Country . Caboodle, has been designing kits and patterns since 1992. She lives in Nashua, Iowa, where her design studio is nestled in the country overlooking the beautiful Cedar Lake. She works side by side with her daughter, Kaytlyn, and her mom, Jan. Leanne and Kaytlyn are designing some lines together, so keep an eye out for them. Leanne is not new to the fabric industry, as she has been designing fabric for the past 19 years. Her whimsical characters are generally the focus of her designs, both in fabric, patterns and kits. Leanne loves to work with color and finds a real passion in putting together prints, plaids, and solids, where truly she feels that God gets the credit for her abilities. A few of her signature items are her "Caboodles in a Box" packaged in checkerboard boxes, her "Alphabet Soup Quilts" & "Rugs in a Mug" packaged in antique-style tin mugs.

When Leanne is not designing, she is spending time with her husband Ed, or hanging out with her grown children, Shelby and son-in-law Tim, Taylor and daughter-in-law Amy, and daughter Kaytlyn. The absolute joys of her life are her grandchildren Toby, Leighton and Finley. They serve as her biggest inspiration!
