Poorhouse Quilt Designs was founded in September 2006, after designing the Sampler Tote as a gift for a family member. Our pattern line has grown since then- there are bags, bowls, quilts, banners, ornaments...you never know what we will come up with!

Poorhouse Quilt Designs also provides laser cutting to quilt shops and designers.

Kris has a degree in Mechanical Engineering and a love of fabric and color; these seemingly conflicting pursuits have come together to form our pattern company!

Laser Driver


Bill has a degree in Industrial Engineering and has recently retired from his day job, then plunged right into the quilt world. You can usually find him running the laser - he's behind the scenes running the ship!
