Thank you for visiting Surrounded by Scraps — a design company led by Linda Nussbaum, specializing in handmade quilts and quilted accessories for your home and self. My designs gravitate toward a modern aesthetic while pulling from a broad number of influences, traditions and techniques.
I began quilting in 1999 after receiving a BA in drama with a concentration in costume design three years earlier. I was introduced to the quilting world by my mother, a talented quilter, seamstress and stitcher in her own right, who had also given me my first sewing lessons about 20 years earlier. It did not take long to become enamored and the quilting bug was born.
Fast forward to 2011. After several years of working on the retail side of the quilting and home goods industry I decided to concentrate my time on making unique, handmade goods and original patterns for others. And so Surrounded by Scraps, LLC was born.
