About

Let me tell you a little about me and how I came to love the art of quilting. I am a mother of two wonderful children, a girl and a boy, a very large and family friendly dog, and a deaf cat.

I started my quilting career on a dare. One day, my mother decided to make a quilt. To motivate herself, she challenged me to make a quilt as well. I couldn't pass up the opportunity as my mother is very good at crocheting and I thought this would be great fun. I have since made over 200 quilts for family, friends and customers all over the country.

I would like to find a home for my quilts in all 50 states. I am almost there.

After I made my ninth quilt, my mother and grandmother suggested that I sell them as they were very beautiful. They offered me a deal I couldn't pass up. They jointly owned a craft…

After I made my ninth quilt, my mother and grandmother suggested that I sell them as they were very beautiful. They offered me a deal I couldn't pass up. They jointly owned a craft store in Guthrie, OK and offered to sell my quilts. That started my quilting business. I eventually had my own store.

After the birth of my daughter, my husband and I decided that the best thing to do was to close the store as I wanted to be a full-time mom. Thirteen months later, my son was born.

I make quilts from my own designs as well as custom made-to-order quilts. I make T-Shirt quilts as well. This is a great way to keep the memories without having to take up closet space.

If you are looking for that perfect gift for a baby shower, wedding gift or "just because" nothing is warmer or more cherished then a hand-made quilt from The Purple Fish!
