About

My mother was a popular quilter in her local community, known for her charity quilts that would bring in thousands of dollars every year. I was in awe of her talent and the beautiful quilts she made. Eventually, my mother took me to her favorite quilt shop and bought me my very first quilting pattern. It was for a table runner and she helped me pick out fabrics and the supplies I would need. Once she showed me the basics, I was hooked and have never looked back!

In 2006, I opened Baby's Breath Quilts, and did many of the Top 10 Vermont Craft Fairs. Juried into the State Craft Gallery: Frog Hollow, Artisans Hand Craft Gallery, and Art on Main in Bristol, my quilts were received with great success and even won awards at local quilt shows.

Today I have moved my business to Etsy so I can combine both my original quilting business, Baby's Breath Quilts, with my love for making other non-traditional quilted and fabric crafts. Like many artists and crafters, my interests are varied and I love to play with many different ideas. I have even begun developing my own line of quilt patterns, which is very exciting.

Sixteen years later, no matter what project I am working on, one thing remains the same: every time I pick a needle and thread, I can't help thinking of my mother and how she started me on this path to becoming a quilter. Sadly, she passed away several years ago but I remember those precious moments at her kitchen table learning to sew. Every project I make, whether it's a king size quilt or a change purse, one thing always remains the same, it was made with love.
