Leanne Anderson has been designing kits and patterns since 1992. She’s the owner of The Whole Country Caboodle, where she works alongside her daughter Kaytlyn and her mom, Jan. She lives in Nashua, Iowa, where her design studio is nestled in the country overlooking beautiful Cedar Lake.
Leanne is not new to the fabric industry. She has been designing fabric for the past 20 years. Her whimsical characters are generally the focus of her designs whether in fabric, patterns, or kits. She loves to work with color and finds joy in putting together prints, plaids, and solids. A few of her signature items are Caboodles in a Box, Alphabet Soup Quilts, and Mug Rugs. She is also excited that she and Kaytlyn are designing some fabric lines together, so keep an eye out for them.
Leanne’s first book with AQS Publishing, Camp Nana: Projects to Quilt & Sew, is now available!
When Leanne is not designing, she is spending time with her husband, Ed, or hanging out with her grown children: Shelby and son-in-law Tim, Taylor and daughter-in-law Amy, Kaytlyn, and Colombian daughter, Margarita. The absolute joys of her life are her grandchildren Toby, Leighton, Finley, Maxwell, and Matilda. They serve as her biggest inspiration!
