Meet Bobbie of The Geeky Bobbin

Bobbie Gentili is the founder of The Geeky Bobbin and has been a long-time PreQuilter creating digital coloring pages for her mind-blowing quilts from PreQuilt's very beginning. In addition to designing bold, geometric quilt designs, she's also a longarmer, lecturer, and quilt teacher.

Most of her quilts are fat quarter friendly, which makes them amazingly helpful at stash busting.

About I Wove U

I Wove U has big blocks, meaning the quilt top comes together in no time! Between the two block layout options, block rotations, and the sashing-vs-minimal background, this pattern has a lot of possibilities for you to put your unique touch on it. It also comes in a variety of sizes, depending on how many heart blocks you make.

PreQuilt's Thoughts

We love all the options this quilt design provides and that the choice of fabrics can lend itself to either plaid like transparency hearts or Celtic knot like hearts. At first glance, this quilt looks a bit intimidating due to the curved hearts, but upon closer inspection, you realize that those curves will be pretty smooth because the blocks are so big and I bet you can make this!

A Bit About The Geeky Bobbin

What year did you start your company?


What is your favorite step in the pattern design process?

I love playing with fabric placement and seeing how changing it up can change the overall look of a pattern, revealing secondary designs.

Do you have a favorite color?

I'm currently on a pink kick!

What is your favorite PreQuilt feature?

I really like the options for randomizing colors. I especially love being able to lock down some of the color tags, and randomizing from a limited color palette/fabric pull.
