Welcome to The Quilt District! I’m Tara Miller: quilt designer, maker, and enthusiast.
By day, I’m a user experience content developer in the software industry. All other waking moments I’m making, designing, studying, writing about, or otherwise involved in something to do with quilts.
I serve on the Board of Directors of the American Quilt Study Group (AQSG), am a member of the Modern Quilt Guild, and founded the Atlanta Quilt Study Group in 2019.
I love gathering with other quilters! Please see my Talks & Workshops page for speaking engagements and classes.
Most of all, I’m just really grateful to be here… among the quilts.
Here are a few places where you can see, read, or watch my work…
