I am self-taught at quilting, cake decorating and machine embroidery designing, among other things. I digitize my own embroidery designs. I have two baby quilts and some other projects posted on the HGTV website if you'd like to look at them. They are posted under the user name "SewHappy". Copy and paste this link:

While I have been known to make a traditional quilt or two, I'd rather make smaller pictoral quilts or other pieces of my own design. See my sold items and my feedback for ideas. See my Facebook album "Mini Quilts" for a pic of the Piano and Cello mini quilts. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.165355530166606.27101.165346446834181&type=3

At the moment I am more into making baby items. But who knows, the wind may change at any time. : )

I hope you see something you like. Thanks for stopping by. Happy shopping!
