After completing a University degree, working as a Food Scientist, marrying and having her two boys, her obsession with patchwork finally became her business!
She sources her inspiration for designing from different cultures such as Japanese, Middle Eastern, Chinese and Australian. Leesa loves teaching and sharing her obsession with rich decadent prints, as well as three dimensional appliqué and handbag design.
Her patchwork philosophies include the fact that it really is all about the journey, and having fun with friends, preferably with cake and a cuppa close at hand. The fact that you end up with something beautiful at the end of the journey, is your reward for making time for yourself.
As well as having projects published in magazines such as Quilters Companion, Australian Patchwork & Quilting and Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Magazine, Leesa has designed and published over 50 patterns for quilts, wall hangings, and bags. Please check out Leesa’s Website: www.leesachandlerdesigns.com
