** About Me **

I started my home-based quilting business while my children were still in elementary school and it's still going strong. Three college graduations later (NC State, St. Andrews, and Texas A & M), there might not be kids to take care of at home, but the quilting work continues!

** About My Work **

I've been quilting for well over 30 years now. Started out making my own clothes when I was in first grade and ended up making clothing, Halloween costumes and quilts for all my babies and relatives as they came along. Now I make quilts for my "Future Grandchild Collection" and for gifts/selling purposes. For many years, I have been fascinated with the fabrics from the 1930's and have made quite a few quilts using the wonderful reproduction fabrics that are now available. I love to use old,…

** About My Work **

I've been quilting for well over 30 years now. Started out making my own clothes when I was in first grade and ended up making clothing, Halloween costumes and quilts for all my babies and relatives as they came along. Now I make quilts for my "Future Grandchild Collection" and for gifts/selling purposes. For many years, I have been fascinated with the fabrics from the 1930's and have made quite a few quilts using the wonderful reproduction fabrics that are now available. I love to use old, traditional patterns, but will occasionally leave my comfort zone by using brights and batiks and most especially, fabric selvages. I've spent many years working in quilt shops and teaching all levels of quilting classes. Through my quilt shop connections and my website, much of my time is taken up with commission work and quilting for friends.

** About My Shop **

If you are looking for a one-of-a-kind work of art, some adorable baby quilts, beautiful quilted wall hangings or a fabulous gift for a wonderful friend, you have come to the right place. All of my items are made with the love of quilting that comes from over 30 years of experience. I use only quilt-shop cottons, cotton batting and cotton thread. All of my quilts are fully machine washable and colorfast. All of the items I sell are from my smoke-free home. Two cats (Stanley and Peaches) allow us to live with them, but they are not allowed in my sewing room or near any of my fabric. Do you have any special quilting requests? I would love to make a quilt for you, too!

** Shipping **

I will ship everywhere, even though I only list the USA in my listings. Shipping costs to other countries will be determined by location and weight of the object being mailed. Please don't hesitate to request a shipping quote for your specific country.

** More About Me **

A great way to get to know someone is to find out what they love. Some things on my list are (in no particular order): my loving family, my Lord and Savior, cats purring, happy teenagers, vintage quilts, fused glass, handmade gifts, oxidized sterling silver, frisky squirrels, friends laughing, colorful fabric selvages, steaming hot Kenya coffee, North Carolina in the spring, Austin in the summer, toothy smiles, Etsy, everyone who has served in the Military, Moda and Marcus Brothers fabrics, squishy bear hugs and all of the "Law and Order" shows. And you know what, nothing would make me happier than to make a quilt for you!
