My name is Anna French and I am a designer living in Fort Worth, Texas. I graduated from University of Texas in Arlington with a degree in Visual Communications.  I currently work as a graphic and web designer for a digital marketing agency.

I am a self-taught sewer/quilter.  I started learning from the internet, reading tutorials and watching YouTube videos in 2007 when I wanted to make my 6 month old son a quilt. I own and operate For The Love of Joy, a small business that once specialized in quilted child's name pillows, quilted nursing pillow covers, and quilts but now I solely design quilt patterns.  I want to pass down my knowledge to other young women or men out there who may be seeking the same creative outlet that I had once desired.

I am inspired by the wide-open Texas country, quiet evenings, delicious food, working out and being active, listening to people's stories, pretty homes, lovely patterns, all the colors, laughing with friends,  my beautiful family, and seeking Jesus in all things.
