Announcement   FREE SHIPPING ON ALL ORDERS OVER $100 !

As a small child, I was fascinated with color, with pattern, with texture, and with trying to turn all of those elements into something unique to the world. As an adult, I am lucky to be able to play with fabric, with paint, with anything that satisfies my hunger for color and texture. My designs are saturated with my passion for vibrant, well-crafted pieces and are intended for people who seek out novel twists on classic pieces. I make what I'd want in my own home, and am happy when I finish a project thinking "Oh, I really love this...this is the best thing I've ever done". And I think that thought at the completion of every piece I make.

I am thankful that I can make something new every day, and that I can make every day something new.

Please visit my other Etsy shop,

for a custom painting or drawing of your home...something else for the homebody in all of us!

What a beautiful little blanket to wrap a precious little one up! It's made well, colors are adorable, the picture really doesn't do it justice. Thank you, I'll treasure it for years!

Delightful vendor with whom to do business. The quilt is gorgeous and was sent rapidly--even though the vendor had to deal with Etsy's recent computer verification fiasco. Email communiction was excellent.

I have really enjoyed these pot holders. They were even prettier in person.

I love this quilt. It's perfect for covering my feet and legs when on the couch or chair.

About

Passion is its own reward.....

I love to play with color and texture, and have been sewing since I was a little girl making doll clothes with my sister. We'd go begging to upholstery shops in search of "fancy" remnants, velvets and satins to turn our Barbies into royalty, and got pretty good both at sewing and convincing people that what we wanted to do was important.

Years forward to having four daughters: the cute matching school outfits, dance costumes, choir uniforms, prom dresses, and finally bridesmaids dresses, wedding gowns, baby quilts and baby clothes. Now, after the wedding quilts and birthday quilts and new baby quilts for family and friends, I realized it was time to either quit with the production or start marketing my work. Scaling down in size to housewares allows me to play with designs that might or might not end up as a full-size quilt someday, but the endless experimentation is the point of the exercise.

I never quit. I love it too much, and passion is its own reward. Sales are the icing on the cake, and I am both content and excited with my life as an artist.

Welcome! All items in my shop are 100% hand-crafted by me. All quilts are created with the highest quality fabrics, battings and threads for an heirloom quality piece of textile art. Portraits are on canvas panels with professional quality acrylic paints and varnish. I welcome custom design requests for quilts, housewaress, and portraits (including pet portraits!). Pricing for custom work is based on the finished size of the piece. Please allow up to one month for the completion of custom work unless it is a rush order (determined on an individual basis). Since all pieces are hand-crafted, not two items are alike! Please allow for slight variations in made-to-order pieces.
