Welcome to Katie Malan Designs

I am a life long crafter, learning at the feet of both of my parents who are insanely creative and talented. I've tried it all from cross stitching to crocheting and knitting, painting, scrapbooking, both paper and digital, and upcycling. I've built furniture and remodeled all of our houses. I started quilting in 2009 and was instantly hooked. I have made countless quilts since then, and have enjoyed every minute of it. "Crafting is my therapy" is a very real frame of mind for me. In 2014, Vanessa Goertzen of Lella Boutique moved in across the street and for the first time I considered that one could make a living doing, what had been until then, a hobby. In 2019, after another quilt market with Vanessa, I decided to take the plunge and give this a real go.

 I have been married for over twenty years. My husband, Casey, works for SkyWest Airlines and we travel...A LOT. I've been to over 15 countries and traveled the US fairly thoroughly. It is one of my great loves.


We adopted our beautiful, smart, fiercely independent, fearless, and creative daughter, Jenna, in 2009. 

For my day job, I currently manage a boutique, gas station, bakery, convenience store in Southern Utah, where I am also the buyer and bookkeeper. I have found quilting lends itself to me in the same way accounting does; one plus one will always be two. If I cut and sew correctly, it turns into something clean and pristine and beautiful.
