About

A Passion Fulfilled

I have been sewing and crafting since I was 6 years old. All my life I have been surrounded by talented, creative women like my mother, grandmother, and aunt. Every holiday, celebration or special occasion a quilt or handmade items were gifted or created, and I always loved how the colors flowed, and how you could convey an emotion using nothing but little pieces of fabric. Little did I know then, but I had been bitten by the quilt bug.

The first quilt I ever made on my own was one I had a dream about. After a month of drawing up the design, picking the perfect colors, and some “lets see if this works”, I showed my completed quilt to my mom. After that there was no turning back, quilting was what I needed!

To me, quilting is freedom. I have heard there are rules, but I would be hard pressed to tell you what they are. I love the smell of fabric, the feel and texture, and the stunning array of colors I can’t even put names to. My favorite fabrics are batiks, and often I am inspired by a single piece of fabric that sings to me in a tune I can only answer with a needle and thread. I create my own patterns, drawn from the inspiration I find in countless books, magazines and other quilters. I am greatly influenced by the work of Jacqueline De Jonge, Carol Bryer Fallert, and Judy Niemeyer. I have many of their patterns in my library, and look forward to someday completing them all at least once.

I wouldn’t be able to quilt the way I do without the love and support I find in my family. My wonderful husband has been known to make surprise stops at local quilt stores when we are on vacation, and doesn’t raise too much of a fuss when I spend a little bit more than I planned on a beautiful piece of fabric. He doesn’t like to admit it, but the man does have an eye for color!

My family encouraged my to start my shop. I have so many quilts ideas that I am finally creating patterns for them. I love to be able to share my ideas, knowing that they are going to be brought to life for those who appreciate them. There is no comparing the feeling that a handmade item invokes. You know that someone took the time and put in the effort to find the perfect colors and prints to create something you can cherish forever.
