Hi, My name is Rachel and I love modern quilting, quilt art and drawing! Here's a picture of me holding a quilt I made using my River Rapids Quilt Pattern.

About Kohatu Patterns


My name is Rachel and I love everything about modern quilting. I also love to draw and create art.

My favourite method of patchwork is foundation paper piecing, but I have also designed beginner-level quilt patterns, and have even designed my own fabric.

I started patchwork and quilting in 2005. My quilting has improved a lot of the years. In 2016, through sheer determination (and with a little help from the internet), I learned foundation paper piecing. By 2017, I had completed a quilt full of paper pieced trucks, tractors, and other construction vehicles which I had designed myself, and I was completely addicted!

I was surprised when many of my friends and family asked for more! I have now designed more than one hundred paper-pieced quilt patterns and several machine-pieced modern quilt patterns. I have also been incredibly lucky to have numerous patterns featured in quilting magazines such as Make Modern Magazine and Online Quilt Magazine. I simply enjoy designing patterns and am excited to share my passion with you!

I strive to provide the best possible paper-pieced quilt block patterns, which are easy to sew and user-friendly. I also love to pass on my passion for quilting.

You will find lots of wonderful quilting tips and tricks on my blog. There are also a few free paper pieced patterns and sewing patterns available in my store too. I also love to send out freebies in my monthly email newsletter, so if you are keen on paper piecing, or keen to learn, I hope you will sign up so we can keep in touch!
