Unique Quilts, Baskets, Bracelets

Welcome to MountainViews Designs! I am a fiber artist in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. The spectacular nature surrounding me provides me with an abundance of ideas for my designing palette. My main medium I use is fabric where I create distinctive items that can be used to decorate your home and serve as an alternative to just hanging a picture on the wall. I like to design my pieces to fit in with many different home decor esthetics and personal tastes. I am in the process of designing unique fashion accessories as well! All but a few of my quilts, baskets, and accessories (such as hair scrunchies and bracelets) are original designs by me.

I especially like to design with a nature inspired theme. Some of my favorites are the quilted flower & leaf wallhangings. These are designed by transferring the pigment/ dye of the actual flowers and leaves into the fabric. An inking and thread painting technique further enhances the colors to give the quilt a rustic/ organic feel.
All quilts have a “sleeve” on the back for easy hanging. Colors in baskets may vary slightly from photos.

I have been creating in one way or another from a very early age whether it be by drawing, painting, sewing, quilting etc. My mother taught me how to sew at the age of 9. She couldn’t keep me out of the fabric and quilt stores from then on!

My background includes a Commercial Art/ Advertising degree, designed newspaper ads and print jobs, worked for several fabric store chains and owned/ operated our own fabric/ quilt store. MountainViews Designs has been in business since 2013. I give lectures and workshops for quilt guilds on my plant pounding technique. Also check out an article I wrote for American Quilter magazine (May 2016) discussing my plant pounding technique. I was also very fortunate for one of my quilts to be accepted to AQS Quilt Show, Paducah Ky in 2014.

If you wish to see more of my work, please visit www.MountainViewsDesigns.com or if you are in the Asheville, NC area, my work is for sale at Mountain Made in the Grove Arcade, downtown Asheville.
