About Me
I have been quilting for 20 years and sewing many more. I teach quilting as well as demo long arm quilting machine for my nephew at shows when needed. I do long arm quilting as a business as well as donate the quilting for Quilts of Valor for my guild in Geneseo IL. Quilting in my passion; I especially like doing photo/memory quilts for others so their memories become a tangible feature in their home. I love to teach different techniques to others and see them have the light bulb click on when they get the idea - and see the passion grab them as well.

I have added some pictures of some of the quilts I have worked on this summer/fall, some of which hung in our Guild Show in September.  Most were for friends and clients.  It was especially fun to finish Mary's Hearts for a friend whose aunt had made the quilt before she passed away so now the family has a finished quilt to remember her. A similar situation applies to the Blue Star quilt which I finished for a family; this was the third top they had had me finish for them.

Oh my where did the summer go?  Well, for the most part I think it melted away; like many of you we had a very warm one and it continues today.  Good news is that 'they' say it will be cooler next week.  Yea!!!

Overall, it has been a busy summer.  Our oldest daughter and family moved to Indiana after school was out in June; their son spent three weeks with us in June while he took part in Niabi Zoo's Junior Zookeeper Program.  He had a ball and was very appreciated by the zoo; they…

Does anyone here know of a Joplin MO guild we could contact re sending quilts to aid those who lost so much this weekend?  Our guild does a lot of charity quilts and have sent them to Japan and Alabama groups so am looking for a contact in Joplin.  Thanks for the help.  Can e-mail me privately at quiltinana@quiltinana.com if you prefer.

Kari went home today (Wednesday) after removal of her dialysis stent!  Praise that there is no ongoing heart problems, her lungs will recover with rest and exercise, her kidneys are improving and no further dialysis is required.  Now she is home to recuperate and grief - they thank for their prayers from all around the world and ask continued support through this next phase of their recovery.


It is so good to know we can ask friends we have not met to help with these needs…
