I Love Designing and Making Modern Quilts!

I started designing modern quilt patterns just a few years ago although I've been quilting for over 25 years. I was inspired to become a designer by my guild mates in the Sarasota Modern Quilt Guild who encouraged me to turn my workshop instructions into patterns. I love modern contemporary quilts and all of the great new fabrics that ar eout there for us to use.

I have a few goals in mind whenever I write a pattern.
***Beginner Friendly--My patterns are great for confident beginners.
***Traditional Quilters Welcome! Quilters who are fairly new to modern quilting tell me that my patterns are an easy introduction to the principles of modern quilting.
***Challenge for experienced quilters--At the same time, I provide tips for customizing the quilt and that gives a challenge to experienced quilters.
***Sew Your Stash--Some of the patterns can be made from your stash without the need to buy a lot of new fabric. For example, instead of using one fabric for the background, you can use several different coordinating fabrics. That will also give your quilt a unique look.

I love hearing from buyers (and students in my workshops) when they make a quilt from one of my patterns. So, please contact me anytime and share a photo.

Happy Modern Quilting!
