A number of quilt stores have started carrying my patterns. If you would like to see my patterns in your local quilt shop, please have the shop contact me about wholesale opportunities.

I have an engineering degree and am a retired geophysicist; perhaps that is why I love the geometry of quilting! I hope that you will enjoy stitching up some of my designs.
