Kelly Young is a quilter, author, pattern designer, and quilt teacher. A former elementary teacher who has been making quilts for over 20 years, Kelly traded her classroom full of children for a classroom full of quilters and began traveling to teach and design patterns full-time in 2015. With a passion for making scrappy quilts, she tries to pack as many fabrics as possible into her designs. She loves blending carefree improv piecing with the comfortable structure of a quilt pattern, and this led her to further explore the improv technique, first in her debut book, Stash Statement (Martingale, 2018), and now in a fresh, new direction with Scrappy Improv Quilting. As a former teacher, Kelly enjoys encouraging quilters to try new skills, building their confidence, and helping them have fun in the process! Kelly lives in Germantown, Tennessee where she is a member of the Memphis Area Modern Quilt Guild.
