About Me
I am not a pattern follower and enjoy designing and creating my own art quilts. I have used many different techniques, textiles and mediums to create my art, however I enjoy traditional block quilts as well. I use my home machine to piece and quilt up to full size quilts. I like to add embellishments and texture to my creations which provide depth and interest.
