I am so glad you have stopped by my web site. I would love for you to browse around, look at some of my quilts and see the workshops and lectures I have to offer. My husband, Joe, says I am so passionate about my quilting and he is correct. I love to quilt. I am also passionate about teaching. I enjoy sharing what I have learned with others.
I consider myself very lucky in that my quilts have won awards and have been shown on the covers of magazines, including Quilter's Newsletter Magazine. I recently read a wonderful quote from Oprah. "Luck is preparation meeting opportunity. If you hadn't been prepared when the opportunity came along, you wouldn't have been lucky." So even though I have been very lucky along my journey some if it is because I have worked very hard to improve with each and every quilt I make.
I hope you enjoy your journey looking through my web site and will feel free to contact me if you should have any questions.
