About Kick Ass Quilts

Create a home through quilting for you and others in a sustainable and mindful way

Rianne the sustainable quilter

I've been quilting in the sustainable way for 10 years. It started as a budget friendly way to quilt and evolved into a way to turn second-hand fabrics into quilter masterpieces. 


Quilting sustainably is a way to express my creativity and values, without harming the planet. Each quilt I make is unique, and tells its own story because of the fabrics used.

Teaching style of Kick Ass Quilts

My signature quilting style is the basis of the  Kick Ass Quilts teaching style. The method focuses on empowering you to create textile goods that express your own values and creativity: to create quilted items to use that have meaning for you with reclaimed fabrics.


 The teachings also guide you in the mindfulness aspect of quilting. Quilting creates an  anchor of peace in your life and helps to de-stress.  It gives a moment of contemplation for yourself, while creating items you want to use during your day. 

How you can learn to quilt

It is my mission as a teacher to show you how you can use the magic of quilting for yourself.  I use a structure for that, with lessons from beginner to pro. Each lesson teaches different methods and guide you to unleash your creativity. Classes are with quick projects and short videos, because I believe it creates skill and confidence to get your hands busy. 


With the Kick Ass Quilts College and with the online community, I've created a space where people can learn about sustainable textiles together. The videos guide you through the steps, and the community gives you inspiration for your quilts.  I invite you to give quilting a change with my beginner class. Finally create a use for those old clothes and fabrics you have lying around!
