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. As a little girl, Natalie learned to sew, knit, and crochet from her grandmother. After a successful career in interior design in Los Angeles, Natalie decided it was time to live a new dream, and has never looked back. She has designed fabric for Windham and Anthology Fabrics, and is also a part of the 2019 OLFA Design Team, a Janome Maker, an Aurifilosopher and 2019 Aurifil Designer of the Month. She is 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.
