Quilt Pattern Designer: Konda Luckau
Konda learned how to sew in 4-H and home economics. She started out with pants that didn't fit and a sweatshirt with a stretched out neck. It got better from there. Konda made her first quilt in high school. She said, "I heard that to make a quilt, all you had to do was sew squares into rows and sew the rows together." She loved the quilt despite the fact that none of the squares matched up.
From there, Konda went on to become a math teacher and start a family. As many do, Konda came back to quilting when she was expecting her first child. She credits a neighbor for igniting her passion for quilting. That same neighbor also introduced her to the long arm sewing machine, and she was hooked.
Konda Luckau and her family moved to Payson the summer of 2002. That fall Konda started her long arm quilting business, Moose on the Porch Quilts. A few years later, she published her first pattern book, "Simply Charming," that contained 8 patterns based on 5" charm squares. Her newest book, "Simply Charming Kids," became available this past June.
Konda is also active in the quilting community. She has been the chairman of the Peteetneet Quilt Show (www.moosequilts.com/quiltshow) in Payson for 6 years and has participated in the Quilts of Valor (www.qovf.org) program for about that long as well. Her patterns have also recently debuted at the Moda Bake Shop (www.modabakeshop.com). Also recently, Konda started up a successful Jelly Roll Sampler Quilt Along on her blog. She has brought 12 designers together to create a free block of the month type program. Hundreds are participating through her blog, and many are continuing to join.
