Designer Profile

Natalie Barnes

Natalie is the owner/designer for beyond the reef, a quilt pattern-design company that she started one rainy north shore morning on a lanai in Hanalei, Kauai, while drinking coffee with author Jill Marie Landis. As a little girl, Natalie learned to sew, knit, and crochet from her grandmother. After a successful career in the demanding commercial/corporate interior design field in Los Angeles, Natalie decided it was time to live a new dream, and put her talents to work in another area. She has never looked back. She is proud to be fabric designer for Windham Fabrics and guest designer for Anthology Fabrics.  She is also a part of the 2019 OLFA Design Team, a Janome Maker, and an Aurifilosopher and 2019 Aurifil Designer of the Month.  She is the author of A Modern Twist, by Martingale/TPP with contributions by Angela Walters.  And you'll find her entertaining tutorials on the new video series, STITCH!, or teaching at a guild or retreat near you.

Having always lived on the beach, Natalie draws her inspiration for color and design from the sea, the sky, and the land. These days you’ll find Natalie in the studio in sunny Southern California, or out and about with her dog, Stitch.
