About Karen Burns

Karen Burns started with Martingale as an office-tour guide (getting paid in quilt books), and then quickly worked her way into the heart of the company. She’s spent time as an account manager and as communications coordinator, and now works as an acquisitions editor. She also updates our Facebook and Flickr pages. As a machine quilter, Karen has contributed to several Martingale books, including A Baker’s Dozen, Jelly Babies, Quilting with Precuts and Shortcuts, and the upcoming Quilting with Fat Quarters. With a stack of over 30 of her own quilts at home ready to be quilted, Karen compares herself to the cobbler whose children have no shoes—she is the quilter with no finished quilts.
