September 4, 2014 – Doug Leko

Lecture: Trunk Show

Doug Leko founded Antler Quilt Design in 2008, when he was just fourteen. He'd been quilting since the age of six, and working in his mother's quilt shop over the years helped him develop his skills and refine his art. After pattern testing for various designers, he began to develop his own quilt designs. Doug took off from there, launching a full-scale design and marketing operation while he was still in high school.

Since then, his reputation has grown along with his business. He has a vibrant and growing collection of patterns and his work has been featured in prominent publications such as McCall's Quilting and Quiltmaker, and will soon be seen in American Patchwork & Quilting. When he's not busy developing new designs or showing at Quilt Market, he divides his time between pursuing a business degree and teaching and speaking at quilting events.

Doug takes a distinctive approach to his quilt designs. He enjoys incorporating secondary design elements, and he's absolutely passionate about color. He loves every aspect of the quilting process, from design to fabric selection to handwork to binding. Sharing with other quilters is what Doug likes best about his business, and he's known as much for his outgoing nature and storytelling as for his unique passion about quilting.
