Bunnie Cleland is a long-time crafter and sewist (sewing artist) who fell in love with quilting in 2006, after her mother dragged her to a quilt show and 9-store shop hop. She was hired at a local quilt shop before she even finished her first quilting class...though she did go on to finish 12 quilts that first year!
As a former U.S. Navy Electronics Technician and Naval Nuclear Power Plant Reactor operator, Bunnie understands the importance of precision and accuracy. She discovered she has the talent for translating complex written directions into easy-to-follow instructions. This aided in the creation of Triangle Frenzy's detailed, step-by-step illustrations for experienced beginners and intermediate level quilters. She is also able to use her technical background in teaching sewing techniques to students, guiding them through the creative process that will help them succeed at quilting.
Her business started by accident in 2013 when she arranged some equilateral triangles into a quilting project and was prompted to translate her efforts into patterns. High demand for the patterns, by quilters, retailers, and fabric companies, resulted in the global distribution of Triangle Frenzy, designs that produce several visually stunning quilting projects including table runners, table toppers, lap quilts, and bed quilts.
On the rare occasion when she is not quilting, she enjoys photography, digital scrapbooking, Disney, trading pins, and organizing just about anything. Bunnie lives with her husband in Chesapeake, Virginia. They have two grown children.
