Erin Grogan is the pattern designer and founder of Love Sew Modern and was introduced to sewing by her grandmother, a professional seamstress. Time spent with her grandmother each summer sparked her love for design and Erin dreamed of one day becoming a clothing designer.

During her first trip to a modern quilt shop in 2017, Erin took one look at all the bright and bold fabrics and modern quilts she knew instantly knew she wanted to become a quilter. She left her corporate job to focus on growing her dream, Love Sew Modern. Erin resides in Northern Virginia with her husband, two children, and her puppy Tula (yes, named after the amazing fabric designer Tula Pink!) 

You can find Erin on her website at, on Instagram at @LoveSewModern, and on Pinterest & Etsy as LoveSewModern.

In this episode, I chat with Erin about “how many quilts is too many”, her poor sewing machine that was killed by a storm, and why her husband is no longer allowed to help with fabric requirement calculations.
