Susan Marth

Susan Marth has a degree in architectural interior design, where she enjoyed space planning and designing for corporate offices in major office tenant buildings in the St. Louis, Mo, area until becoming a stay-at-home mom. Soon after leaving her career, Susan’s passion to design and work with color was fulfilled with fabric.


Having been taught at an early age to sew by her mother, quilting was an easy transition. Her passion for space planning is evident in her use and placement of fabrics in her quilts; while her love of adaptive reuse is apparent all over their home with the use of creatively found and displayed antiques along with her quilts.  She lives with her husband, David, and their three children.

At the request of fellow quilters, in 2003, Susan began putting her original quilt creations into pattern form and started her business, Suzn Quilts patterns. Many of her patterns are seasonal in theme and some of her best-sellers continue to be her own method of quilt-as-you-go lap quilts.

Susan attends International Quilt Market twice annually selling to the trade. Her quilt patterns and books are being sold internationally through quilt shops, catalogs and leading distributors. In addition, Susan’s quilt designs can also be found in leading quilting magazines.

Susan enjoys lecturing, teaching workshops and sharing her joy of quilting and design with others.
