Quilters' Guild of North Dakota

Abby Fuglseth

Abby Fuglseth of Fertile, MN began making quilts in 2014 when she was was 10 years old. “I started making quilts because my neighbor taught both of my sisters how to sew and I wanted to learn how too. My sisters never kept going with it and just stopped at one project but I really enjoyed it and wanted to keep on with it.”


Abby is the daughter of Tammy Fuglseth, an office assistant and Jamy Fuglseth, a home health and hospice nurse. She has two older sisters. Kaitlyn is 20 and attends University of Mary in Bismarck, Megan is 18 and will be attending the same college in Bismarck this fall. Abby herself will be in 9th grade this fall and participates in many other activities and sports such as band, choir, softball, volleyball, and drama.



Abby’s Resurrection quilt took second place in the Youth category at the recent Metro Quilt Expo.

Abby seems thoroughly hooked on quilting. She just finished a t-shirt quilt for her sister who graduated this spring.

She’s finishing up a memory quilt for a family friend who hired her to make one out of her grandmother’s clothes.

Next she will make a quilt for the neighbor who taught her to sew.

We look forward to seeing more work from this talented young quilter.

Her advice to fellow quilters? “What my family and friends continue to tell me, keep sharing your gifts and talents with others.”
