About

Each of my quilts is a unique creation -- no two are exactly alike. I am a self-confessed fabricaholic! Any kind of quilting fabric -- bright, modern, designer fabrics; 30's or 1800's reproduction fabrics; children's fabric with fun motifs; florals that remind you of an English garden. I love fabric!

Back to quilting - my prices are quite reasonable. If I get a really good deal on fabric, I pass the savings along to my buyers. That's why some quilts may be less or more than others. I want everyone to be able to afford a handmade, heirloom quilt!

I hope you enjoy browsing through my quilts and things, and if you purchase something, I hope it's truly a blessing to you.
