About



Leanne Anderson, owner of The Whole Country Caboodle has been designing kits and patterns since 1992.  She is located in Nashua, Iowa, where her design studio is nestled out in the country overlooking the beautiful Cedar Lake where she works side by side with her mom, Jan and daughter, Kaytlyn.  Leanne is not new to the fabric industry as she has been designing fabric for the past 20 years.  Her whimsical characters are generally the focus of her designs, both in fabric, patterns and kits.  Leanne loves to work with color and finds a real passion in putting together prints, plaids and solids, where truly she feels that God gets the credit for her abilities.  A few of her signature items are her “Caboodles in a Box” packaged in polka dot boxes, her “Alphabet Soup Quilts” & “Rugs in a Mug”. 

When Leanne isn’t designing, she is spending time with her husband Ed,  3 beautiful grandchildren; Tobias, Leighton, and Finley, or hanging out with grown children, Shelby, Tim (son-in-law), Taylor and wife Amy and daughter Kaytlyn.
