      Colleen Tauke's Bio - Colleen is a designer, quilter and quilt educator with 40+ years of sewing experience, of those, the last 17 years have been focused on quilting. Early in my quilting endeavors I was challenged to piece a quilt that seemed daunting – fussy cutting, y-seams, strip piecing, hourglass blocks, a pieced border, and appliqué – and that was all in ONE quilt – my first bed sized quilt. I was hooked! Quilting has become more than a hobby, it is a passion that I enjoy sharing with beginners and seasoned quilters alike.
I joined the staff of Fons & Porter Love of Quilting magazine/PBS television in 2013 as the Sewing Specialist. I assisted the staff by testing patterns, preparing teaching materials for IPTV tapings, assisting customer service and creating color option blocks.
Eventually, I helped create over 300 technique and tools videos. I was also honored with the opportunity to be a guest instructor for Love of Quilting on three occasions teaching curved piecing, fussy cutting and y-seams along with a variety of templates.

Later, I work for a local quilt shop in central Iowa, teach classes, do pattern testing, color options and proof reading for American Patchwork and Quilting, longarm quilt for a variety of local quilters, and creating custom quilts.

I was offered the opportunity to travel as an instructor with quilters to the island of Bali shortly before Covid and began a new adventure teaching, writing and doing LIVE event videos for TN Marketing and the National Quilters Circle.
Life is a puzzle – quilting surrounds us with beauty and comfort as we “piece” the shapes together. Happy Quilting!
