Brett Lewis


Avid Quilter and Fabric Designer, Brett Lewis, aka Natural Born Quilter, discovered his love of the craft through learning to sew and quilt in the spring of 2016. Fast forward five years and over 60 quilts later, Brett has attended Spring and Fall International Quilt Markets, with his work and original patterns showcased in Birch Fabric’s, Hobbs Batting, and his very own Quilt Market booth.

He has been featured in the Designer Profile section of the acclaimed magazine Love Patchwork and Quilting and 2022 Quilter’s, various podcasts, developed his own Designer’s Palette thread collection with WonderFil Specialty Threads, and instructs his very own EQ8 designed quilt patterns, with classes focusing on foundation paper piecing, fussy cutting, and curves.

His quilting adventures have taken him to attend an Alaska quilting cruise, and becoming a certified Sew Kind of Wonderful Instructor. And to come full circle, Brett debuted his premiere fabric line Stag and Thistle with Northcott Fabrics in the fall of 2019. Brett describes his quilting style as Contemporary Traditional, using contemporary vibrant and bold fabrics with traditional patterns. Brett’s second fabric collection “Prairie Meadow” shipped to quilt shops in September 2021.
