Welcome to Anna Lena's

I'm so glad you stopped by. I'm Karen Snyder, and this is my e-commerce site. I design quilting fabrics and write quilting books and patterns. Many of these are available at your local quilt shop, and I urge you to support them. However, if you can't find what you need at your neighborhood fabric store, then I'm happy to ship to you.

My Books

I have four books in print. The first two are Bundles of Fun and Fat Quarter Fun. I was inspired to write these books to help quilters use those fat quarters we all love to collect! The instructions are clearly written and there is a fat quarter cutting diagram for each quilt. I also love novelty and large-scale prints, but not everyone finds them easy to use in a quilt. Big Print Quilts will give you lots of ideas and inspiration and, hopefully, the courage to cut into those fabulous large scale prints you covet. My fourth book, Quilts from my Garden, is more than just a quilt book. Not only does it contain quilt patterns, it has projects and recipes, too! Photographed here on the beautiful Long Beach Peninsula.

My Fabrics

I've been designing fabrics for several years now. My first love is 1930's reproductions, but I also love paper dolls and patriotic, as you can see from my most recent lines, Dolly Dear and Red, White and True Blue.
