Welcome to Barb's Favorites, home of Barbara J. Eikmeier, Quilter.
Here's a little about me - I learned to sew in 4-H and made my first quilt while in high school but didn't start quilting seriously until after my marriage in 1984. I've been teaching quilting since 1990 and my favorite technique is applique'.
Married to a military man, quilting became my portable career as we moved around the country and to South Korea for military assignments.
I'm the mother of two, grandmother of one, and author of four quilting books. I'm a fabric designer for Paintbrush Studio Fabrics, a pattern designer, a Craftsy instructor, and I present programs and workshops to guilds around the country.
I live in Lansing, Kansas with my husband and two dogs where in addition to quilting I enjoy flower gardening, baking pies, writing, and sailing on our vintage sailboat at nearby Perry Lake.
