Janet Lundholm McWorkman began quilting in 1971. She made her first quilt to take to college in Monmouth, Oregon, and later earned a teaching credential in life sciences from the University of Oregon in Eugene. While there, she defrayed college expenses by working in a stained glass studio, where her love of color and surface design blossomed.
With the birth of a son in 1993, her focus returned to fabric. She enjoys designing quilt patterns, building very difficult blocks, and giving quilts to family, friends, and charities. Her quilts have won numerous prizes, have been included in national quilt shows, and are hanging in several offices and galleries.
Janet is semi-retired from a 30-year career in echocardiography. She lives in Anchorage, Alaska, with her husband, Don, and two kitties, Rossi and Peach.
