Great item! Purchased as a gift, and the recipient loved it. Had a tiny hiccup with shipping (fabric may have been out of stock?) but Cindi was on it, and super-prompt with communication and updates. Fast shipping. Thanks!
I am so very lucky to be able to do what I love..EVERY day!
I opened my shop after a very long illness left me house bound for 10 years. Etsy gave me the incredible opportunity to be out in the world again through the wonders of cyberspace. I again became a vital, creative woman.
I revisited the traditional quilting my grandmother had taught me and through quilting friends I'd met here, learned to master artistic quilting done by machine.
So... with the old and the new...working side by side...I now create heirloom 'stories in fabric' to be passed down through the generations as cherished family heirlooms.

Owner, Designer, Applique Fiber Artist, Quilter
Under the carful tutelage of my grandmother, I received my first quilting hoop when I was 10. She taught me the discipline of hand quilting and the art of hand applique. Over the years, I have refined my art and have found my niche with applique.
The pieced elements of my quilts are done by machine for durability. The quilting is done by hand. I use premium quilters cotton fabrics, threads and battings.
My goal is to make quilts that will be passed down through the generations as cherrished family heirlooms.
All items are made and stored in my smoke free, pet free studio. I do have two little bunnies... my creative muses...but they never visit the studio.
All quilts comply with CPSIA guidelines for children's bedding unless otherwise noted.
