Welcome to Planted Seed Designs. I’m Gerri Robinson.
I started Planted Seed Designs in 2005 after a career in sales and marketing. I had been quilting for 7 years when I decided I wanted to take the next step and begin creating my own designs.
Planted Seed Designs comes from that part of me that loves a classic, traditional look in fabrics and quilts. I try to capture that classic feel in my fabric designs by updating reproduction prints in colors and scales that work in today’s home décor. My quilt designs lean toward the classic, too, with an emphasis on stars and pinwheels, my two favorite block elements.
Although I spend most of my time designing for Planted Seed Designs, I also enjoy designing outdoor spaces and garden beds and—unlike most people—finding ways to take the indoors out. In my opinion, a tufted cushion on a garden bench or a quilt tossed over a lounge chair makes a beautiful space even more special.
If I’m not in the studio or in the garden, you might find me on a road trip with my husband, Eric, and our dog, Riley, heading off to visit one of our sons: Andrew in Tucson, Josh in Phoenix, or Michael and his family in Minneapolis. It’s a good life!
