Hannah grew up in Germany and learned how to sew from her mother and grandmother. Many of her favorite childhood memories evolve around designing and sewing garments, yet for a while she lost touch with sewing and focused on other interests, such as her work as a neurobiologist. Recently, after a prolonged period of sickness, she rediscovered sewing as a compensatory activity to research. She then stumbled across and instantly fell in love with modern quilting, which opened up a new world of playing with graphic design and fabrics. You can see more of Hannah’s sewing adventures on her blog and on Instagram @verdigrissewing.
