About Me
I am an American-born designer, living in Kenya since 1990 with partner, Jonathan Leakey, on the shore of Lake Baringo, 200 miles north of Nairobi.  I took up quilting as a way of employing local women and taught myself the basics. As experience and confidence increased, I began producing original works of art. Today, I am an experienced international quilt class teacher and I teach online quilt classes for Academy of Quilting.

My thanks go out to all the people who have kindly welcomed me to Quilt with Us! It is nice to be part of this group, and to see what you're all doing by way of quilting.

My big news for this week is that my highly popular online patchwork quilt design class, Darned Quilts, is now open to students at Academy of Quilting! In this class, you will learn more than you ever thought possible about fabric gradations!…
