About the Author: • Katja Marek was born in Moers, Germany. At the age of eight, she immigrated with her family to Canada. Her mother was a tailor by trade and took in alterations as a way to stay home with her children. Katja grew up under her mother’s sewing machine, and spent many childhood hours crafting, sewing, crocheting, and cross-stitching. When she was 14, the family moved to a camp/resort, where many of the cabin beds featured handmade quilts. Katja fell in love with an old version of a Grandmother’s Fan design. Without any knowledge of quilting, but with a vast knowledge of sewing, she proceeded to make templates and cut pieces from old clothing—and thus her quilting journey began. Katja opened her own quilt shop in Kamloops, British Columbia. The shop was featured in the Fall 2008 issue of Quilt Sampler magazine. Her first book, The New Hexagon 52 Blocks to English Paper Piece, became a huge bestseller.
