On my first date with my husband, we were roasting marshmallows over a campfire with several of his good buddies. In the obligatory background check that usually accompanies a first date, I asked him about his growing up years. He told me about his Idaho mountains--that his mom said he'd never find a woman that would agree to live in the mountains, at which point I vehemently protested, “I would live in the mountains!” He joked, “Marry me!” I replied, “Ok.”

Andrew actually proposed shortly there after and announced that he planned on starting a laser engraving company.

Shortly before our union, we trekked down to Las Vegas to purchase a laser. Shortly after acquiring the new and mysterious machine, my mother-in-law (and owner of a lovely quilt shop in Idaho), Rena, asked if we could cut fabric. Andrew and I looked at each other, shrugged our shoulders, and gave it a shot.

After a week of pyrotechnic displays and an apartment that smelled like roasted glue and charcoaled fabric, we figured it out! Local quilt shops started to request that we laser cut their patterns. Andrew and I ran the laser part-time until in July of 2016, we decided to jump cold turkey into Laser Cut Quilts.

Now we provide custom laser cutting services for quilt shops and pattern designers, and we recently introduced our own line of wholesale laser cut kits. We are passionate about the quilting industry. We love that quilters dedicate their time and energy into helping others and making the world a beautiful place. We want to encourage anyone in that pursuit. We believe that our products invite efficiency and dispel frustration. After all, “a minute saved is a minute earned...in quilting.” We hope you are inspired, uplifted, and encouraged in your creative process by our kits. Happy quilting!
