About Me

Hi  My name is Lyna Dagley and I live in Missouri.  I live with my husband Mike, who is retired from the Air Force and General Motors.  I am a Christian and God comes first in my live, then my family and then quilting.  Mike and I have 1 son and 2 grandchildren  Hannah and Noah, the love of our life.

I have been quilting since I was about 8 years old.  I was taught by a very good friend of my family, who did both piecing and quilting  by hand.  My mom was an excellent seamstress so I learned garment sewing as well, but she was not a quilter.  Quilting has always been my love, I taught myself to piece my machine, so I guess I am really a piecer.  I'm not much of a quilter, I can do it I just don't want to!!!  I would rather piece the tops and then send them off to someone whose passion is quilting.

I am a Banker by trade and after 35 years in that industry, I decided to retire and open my own quilt shop.  I opened the Raspberry Patch Quilt shop in Cottleville MO in 2006.  After a health scare in 2010 I decided it was time to retire and concentrate on pattern designing and teaching.

I love small quilts and I love civil war fabric so The Patch Designs Small Patches Small Quilts came to life.  This is where I am today and I love it.

I am available to retreats or to come to your shop and do workshops.  Send me an e-mail if you are interested,

I look forwarding to spending time with all of you.
