Liz Granberg-Jerome

Liz Granberg-Jerome, custom quilter, teacher, designer, and owner of Gypsy Dreamer Quilts, was born and raised in California, but considers herself a Kansan after moving to raise her three children here over 30 years ago. She started quilting in 2006 while caring for her elderly father and quickly made the transition from a lifetime of sewing to becoming passionate about quilting. Her quilts have a flavor all their own as she creates unique layouts and color play for one-of-a-kind quilts.
