Magpie Quilts has been a dream of mine that has lurked in the background of my life while I was schooled, raised my children, and held down a full-time job.

Traditional piecing is what I enjoy, but I like to mix it up with modern fabrics. Some of my items will be hand-quilted and others will be quilted by me on my home sewing machine. Still others will be quilted by a local long-arm quilter and will be noted in the listing. Although I will occasionally make quilts from a matching line of fabrics, most of my creations are from bits and pieces of fabric collected at different times.
