About

I have enjoyed the process of sewing and quilting since 1978, when my grandmother showed me how their sewing club cut and pieced fabrics together. They actually used a piece of card board, cut in the size square they wanted, traced a line around it and cut the square with scizzors from the fabric. They pieced the blocks together, then layered the quilt top, blanket instead of batting and sheet for the backing. Inside out they stitched around the edge and turned it right side out like a pillow case. Then they tied all the cross seams with yarn. So, the first 2 quilts I made were for my 2 daughters using this method. I now enjoy the use of cutting mats, rotary cutters and most of all, my long arm quilting machine.

Thank you for stopping by and hope you will visit my shop and find something useful. I take great pride in using the best quality fabrics and making great products that will last…
