Amanda Jean Nyberg

Considering that she grew up in a family of six children, it comes as no surprise that Amanda Jean is frugal. It is in her blood, whether she likes it or not, and it’s reflected in her quiltmaking. Using up every last bit of fabric has become one of the trademarks of her quilts. Given a choice between using scraps or stash, she would choose scraps nine times out of ten.

Amanda Jean can be found on the web at, which showcases the many ways she is living up to her blog name.

She lives in Wisconsin with her husband and children. They love living in a place where the local parade offerings include not only candy but also cheese curds and chocolate milk.

Amanda Jean is the co-author of Sunday Morning Quilts and a contributor to Fresh Fabric Treats.
