Bio

My name is Celeste Akre. I live in the western suburbs of Chicago, Illinois.

I began quilting when my teenage daughter came home from school one day and told me I would really enjoy quilting because of the math and geometry used in designing and creating a quilt. She certainly was right about that, and I have been happily quilting ever since 2000.

I completed my first Judy Niemeyer quilt in 2011. I had experience with paper piecing before, but nothing like this. Her organization and cutting templates made a complicated project not only doable, but much easier and fun.

I have been teaching Judy Niemeyer’s methods and techniques since 2012. My greatest satisfaction is helping a student grasp Judy’s unique techniques and putting them on their way to making their own beautiful masterpiece.
