About Me
I have always been interested doing anything with a needle and thread. I made my children's clothes when they were young and would wear anything mom made for them. Then about 17 years ago the quilting bug bit. I started making custom quilted jackets and vests. Then 7 years ago I bought a long arm and started my own business. Love it! All in all, I have over 40 years experience in sewing and needle arts.
Hobbies and Interests
quilting, applique, paper piecing, machine quilting, general sewing, gardening

Hi everyone, It's been a long time since I've posted anything.  Life just gets too busy sometimes.  I added some new photos to my page a couple days ago.  Thanks for the nice comments.  Most those new photos are items that are now for sale in my Etsy shop.  I'm so excited!   You'll find more photos of each quilt there. Have fun looking.… Continue

I want to share a quilt I recently finished.

My mom pieced the quilt. 64 blocks- 10 inches square and each one is perfect. I love working on quilts that are square and put together well.

I think the freehand swirly feathers turned out great.…


UFO finished!

This UFO has been waiting over a year for me to find time to quilt it. I really like how using an elaborate quilting design really dresses up a simple 4 patch. The panto I used is by Sharon Schamber called Crystal Relish… Continue

My baby has left for college.

Well, I'm having a hard time this morning. I left my youngest at college yesterday- 3 1/2 hours away. The house is so empty. I know I'll get used to it and when she does come home she will probably drive me nuts. Ok , enough crying, I do have pictures to share of the quilt I made for her to take to school. It is made with the Sweet & Sour collection from CT.…


Can't find it ! ?

So, if you can't find a quilt, does that mean you have too many or is the house too big? I have been looking for the last hour for a wall hanging that I made last year. I usually roll up out of season quilts and store them under my bed. And I have a chest if the entryway that I keep seasonal decor in, it's not there either. I guess I'll look in the closet next. Aaughhhh!

Found it. In the last place I looked. Buried in the closet.…

Janice I have the same problem of not being able to find the quilt or wall hanging. I usually start cleaning the area if I have time. I hope someone will post how they store their quilts. I have three closets full of quilts. I did have a women ask me at the quilt show Friday if I sold any, I said why yes I do, so I gave her my name and address. She hope to come over in June. I need some business cards. But somehow i seem to never have enough time to get all my wishes met. So maybe if I start selling a few, I will be able to find the one to display or the one to show or give as a gift.
