I decided to use these blocks to create heirloom quilts for my daughters and in the process became inspired to continue with this craft for the pure joy it has brought me.

I sew all of my quilts on our dining room table using a combination of machine and hand-sewn techniques, including the cutting and hand-knotting. Some of the quilts are inspired by pattern books, some are of my own design. I can also custom-make a quilt to your specifications or finish/repair any quilt you may have started or inherited.
