On August 1993, Claudia Blodget opened 5 Heart Quilts in historic downtown Tehachapi, California.
Her first quilt project was in 1973. Because she did not own a sewing machine, she pieced a pineapple pillow for her newborn niece by hand, made from a pattern in a Family Circle Magazine. This began Claudia's journey in the fabric arts of quilting.
Here is a photo of a commissioned King Size quilt that Claudia is pinning for the final quilting process. It is a prime example of her amazing skill at color coordination.
Claudia specializes in hand quilting and has received many awards for her quilt design, and has been a member of American Quarter Society (formerly known as Cotton Patch Quarters), and Tehachapi Mountain Quilters.
