I received my heart quilt from Karen today. You can truly not appreciate the work and love that has gone into the making of this quilt. I am a quilt collector, especially lap size quilts. This is absolutely gorgeous, warm, and cozy. It just completes Valentines Day and Spring in my living room. I had Karen sign and date her quilt, so I will always know where I purchased and who made this work of art. Karen definitely uses quality fabrics and is an excellent quilter. I would highly recommend you purchase from her. I know I will be a repeat customer. Thanks Again Karen - Marla

My quilts are unique, in that they are in between an art quilt and a snugly, curl up, usable quilt. I use my quilt tops as my canvas and create from there - the colors and feel that the fabric gives it, tells me which direction to head. Some of my quilts have been in gallery exhibitions, toured around the country, and many people have referred to them as paintings. All of my quilts are quilted on my domestic machine. It is a labor of love. My goal, however, is to make a quilt the you can use and wash, again and again, and have last for years.

The memory I have of my first child blanket (my fairy tale blanket) is what inspired me to make quilts primarily with children in mind - I still have strong memories of that blanket and carried it with me through most of college (I used it as a car lap blanket). So I know how important those first secure memories can be for a child and I wish to pass on those pleasant dreams to as many children who receive them.
