Laura Heine


Laura Heine is a Montana native and lives there still.  She made her first quilt 30 years ago when she was pregnant with her first child. She took a quilting class so she could say she had made one quilt in her life, and thought it would likely be the only quilt once the baby came.  Since that time, she has made numerous quilts.  A nurse by profession, Laura gave up her full-time position to open a quilt shop in Billings.  She teaches locally and nationally, showing students what has worked for her and encouraging them to express their own concepts and creativity in their work.  Laura has written many patterns and has designed several fabric lines.  Many of her designs are simple, but the use of color and quilting make them much more interesting.
