About & Contact

I read the saying 30-years-ago: “When you sleep under a quilt, you sleep under a blanket of love.”  I was hooked before even learning to quilt!

I was orphaned when I was 11-years-old and lived in four different foster homes, totally lost without my siblings. I knew that if I could make a quilt that would give a child a feeling of love and security, that’s what I needed to do – something they could take with them no matter where they lived.  I have been quilting for more than 30 years and love everything about quilting!

My first sewing machine was a borrowed antique Singer – it was electric but it only had a straight-stitch and back-stitch – no other stitches!  Over the years, I sewed with a number of machines and when I felt I truly met my quilting goals, I bought a Bernina…and have been using that to quilt since 2003.  There are newer and fancier machines available but I am still very pleased with my Bernina and can’t justify the purchase of a new sewing machine.
ilquilting1I quilt, I design quilts, I sleep with quilts and I love quilts.  Our four children call me the Quilt Designing Computer Geek.  I also help design and market online quilt shop websites.  My husband and family endures my obsession, as only a loving family can.
I currently have a one-hiney sewing room but my new quilt studio is in-the-works and I am hopeful to move into it soon.

I started out my quilt designing career working with a single quilt shop.  I designed a block of the month quilt and offered the pattern online for free…then the quilt shop sold kits to quilters for the design.  That shop sold so many kits, the owner called the fabric distributor and literally made them go search their warehouse shelves for more of the fabric line I used for that quilt!  This designing process has worked well for me and the quilt shops I have worked with!

For the past 20 years, I have had the opportunity to work from home.  I was able to be the Mom that I wanted to be and raise my children the way my  husband and I wanted them raised.  I quilted all that time (and beyond), too.  Working from home is a big passion of mine.  I feel that women should have options and working from home was the option I chose and would still help anyone who wanted to work from home.
