Hello everyone! My name is Shelley Wasklewicz and I started Sew Expressive Quilts when I was given the opportunity to purchase the Talking Quilts brand and continue the legacy of Jeanette Pie, the original creator. Jeanette has passed, but her concept of incorporating themed quotes in quilted projects for your loved ones will continue. There will be more themes and sizes added to the lines of quotes available for quilts and pillows, etc. If you are looking for a specific theme that you don’t see, please contact me and I will do my best to create a new addition to the lineup.

I also enjoy longarm quilting and quilt for customers who enjoy organic, hand- guided stitching. It is such a pleasure working on someone’s quilt, spending time with it and getting to know the fabrics and that person’s piecing. It is very personal and the quilts are loved by the time I finish.

Quilting is such a great way to express yourself, whether it is piecing or finishing; and incorporating quotes? How could I not become Sew Expressive Quilts?

Joining up with Heather to open a shop, incorporating both our businesses was an easy decision and we became Seams Sew Together!

I look forward to sharing a bit of myself with all of you, whether it be through the quotes, patterns, quilting, or classes and events at the shop. Hopefully, you’ll want to share a bit of yourself with me by sharing pictures of your completed projects and any ideas you may have for quotes.

Thank you, and what will your quilt say?

Here is a little bit about me.  I'm Heather Allen and I have been an enthusiastic quilter for 17 years. In 2021 I established my business, Behind The Seams, so I could explore my passion for designing/writing/drawing up patterns. I find it relaxing and rewarding when I'm creating. Be on the lookout for my quilt patterns from Behind The Seams!  Also with Kits!! 

It is also quite fulfilling to be teaching classes in the Seams Sew Together Classroom. It is wonderful and inspiring, to be surrounded by like minded creative people who are willing to learn new techniques and tools. 

In my free time, I am quite often busy developing and sewing home decor and gifts in my home studio. Our website will continue to provide products for your shopping pleasure. Fabric and sewing supplies are added monthly, if not weekly. 

I look forward to seeing all your friendly and smiling faces or giving you a fun online shopping experience.

Thank you and happy quilting/sewing to all!
