I’m Mary Morningstar Johnson, owner of Ruby and Violet Designs. After working for 17 years in Higher Education, I decided in 2018 to pursue my passion for sewing and design. My mom taught me to sew at very young age; however, it wasn’t until my college years that I really developed a love for it. Garments were always what I chose to design and sew, but after a move to Southern Illinois and meeting a great group of quilters, I discovered a new love… quilting!

 My biggest goal for my business is to bring a unique perspective into the quilting world, through my focus on beautiful craftsmanship, and a vibrant use of color in my work. I want to be inclusive in my approach to quilting by helping others to feel comfortable and confident with the creative process.

 I get excited about organization, cooking and baking, and crafting. And, although still new to entrepreneurial world, I have big plans to grow my business. Looking forward, I’m excited about offering a variety of quilting specific products at Ruby and Violet Designs, as well as moving the business toward quilt pattern and surface pattern design.
