Aimee Wilson

I'm Aimee Wilson, an environmental scientist by day and a dedicated quilter by night. My journey into textiles began at 20 when I crafted a king-sized quilt from old clothes. Over the years, I created handmade clothes for my child, who at 25, still requests my creations. From 2009 to 2014, I made quilts for charity often using thrifted fabric, a fulfilling experience that fueled my passion for sustainable living.

Between 2015 and 2021, I collaborated with indie designers, contributing to apparel pattern testing. The pandemic spurred a shift to remote work and a more casual wardrobe. After sewing countless facemasks, my focus transitioned to quilt pattern testing, marking a new chapter in my creative journey. Every fabric scrap serves a purpose—either in a scrappy quilt or as stuffing for cozy cat beds.

In my dual roles as a scientist and a quilter, I strive for a harmonious blend of creativity and environmental mindfulness. Each stitch tells a story of dedication to both art and sustainability, reflecting my commitment to making a positive impact on the world—one quilt and one environmental study at a time.
