About

I have been quilting and designing for almost 13 years. My aunt is an amazing artist and quilter. I first fell in love with quilts when she made me a quilt while in high school. It was one of the most amazing and special gifts I have ever recieved. The entire quilt was hand-quilted. Since the quilt had a cat on it, I named it "kitty quilt". Although kitty quilt is falling apart now, I still use it every day. No one else in the house is allowed to use it--my husband will often try to use it when he sits on the couch. I will always remind him that kitty quilt is mine.

It wasn't until I saw a tv show that was profiling modern quilts that I really understood the connection between modern design and the art of hand-quilting. Once I had the vision I began quilting...

I have been featured in several venues, including…

I have been featured in several venues, including Dwell Magazine. I have also had 2 quilts featured in Quilts, Baby!, a book from Lark Publishers. The book is available at amazon.com.

I create fun designs with a modern edge. I personally hand quilt each one of my quilts. Although it takes a considerable amount of time, there is just something amazing about a hand quilted quilt that cannot be duplicated.

Just like kitty quilt, I believe each quilt is a work of art to be lovingly used and treasured.

You can see my work locally at these locations:
Babies to Kids
U.T.O.P.I.A.
Flagstaff Community Market
Various Craft Shows

My husband and I have adopted our daughter from Ethiopia and are currently in the process to adopt again from there. We are strong advocates for adoption, both international and domestic.

Finally, I donate 5% of all sales to Rapha House. Rapha House is a non-profit organization that helps love, rescue, and heal children who been rescued out of slavery and sexual exploitation. You can learn more about Rapha house by going to www.raphahouse.org.
