Laura Henneberry, a quilter, and Gar Liu, a developer, are the founders of PreQuilt, an online web application for designing and visualizing quilts. Together they’ve teamed up to use technology to enable quilters to design and visualize quilts in fun and surprising ways.
PreQuilt was born one night when Laura was struggling to design The Circus Tent Quilt with her limited Illustrator skills. Gar looked over her shoulder and said, “I could build something for you that would speed this up.” And the rest is history... Or rather it’s the start of the ever evolving web application you see today.
