I am Susan Nelsen, the owner and designer for Rasmatazz Designs - the place for patterns with pizzazz! I began quilting with my grandmother as a little girl, and now I love to design and create great quilts to share with you. I am fascinated with color and design elements that work together to give you interesting and innovative ideas for your own unique quilts. Once the quilt top is done for a new pattern, then I love to do the actual quilting with either my domestic sewing machine or my longarm machine. The entire process is rewarding for me, and I hope it is inspiring to you. Besides designing patterns, I do longarm custom quilting and teach classes on Machine Quilting for domestic sewing machines. You can contact me if you are interested in my classes or for custom longarm quilting. I also do freelance editing of quilting books and patterns. I live in Idaho Falls, Idaho, with my husband, who is my best cheerleader when I start new projects. We have four children and three grandchildren. Stop by often to see what's new, and I'm always happy to hear from you so let me know how your projects are coming along.

Pleasant Quilting, Susan
