Brigitte Heitland is an interior and textile designer, the owner of Zen Chic, and a fabric designer for Moda Fabrics. She grew up in Germany and enjoyed sewing her own unique clothes, but she didn't learn about the art of quilting until 2003. While browsing in a bookstore, she happened to stumble onto a book of photos of wonderful quilts and was hooked at once. She decided to try quilting herself and got hopelessly addicted to patchwork. Before long, Brigitte started her own online quilting shop. She also began teaching quilting, running a long-arm machine-quilting business, blogging about modern quilting, and sewing quilt samples for American and European magazines. As a trained textile designer, she was also inspired to create her own line of quilting fabrics, which led her full circle back to her roots in interior design. In 2010, Brigitte created her brand, Zen Chic, and gained quite a following, especially among those in the modern-quilt community.
