Very well made, fast shipping
I love color and I am not afraid to use it!
Over the years, I’ve painted rooms cobalt blue, Fenway Green, and various shades of purple. But, I don’t just live with colorful walls; color inspires my quilting as well. I love to make traditional quilts in jewel tones and scrap quilts with all of the colors of the rainbow. I also love to make useful objects like tea cozies, placemats, coasters, etc. from beautiful, colorful fabrics.
While I am inspired by the jolt of vibrant color, I quilt for the calm it brings to my busy life. My studio sits amidst the serene natural setting of the Berkshire hills of western Massachusetts. When it’s time to create, I walk into my studio, sit at the sewing table handcrafted by my father from walnut trees he milled himself and open my door to lake breezes and bird song. The repetitive sound of stitching from my machine then becomes a form of meditation that eases the stress caused by other areas of my life. When my machine work is completed, I move to an Adirondack chair on my screen porch or a leather club chair by the fireplace for the hand sewing that I do to finish each piece I create.
Though I have been quilting for fifteen years and officially joined Etsy five years ago, my shop opened just recently. By day, I am an Internet strategy and technology business consultant and it is my business to know about unique sites when they go live so I checked out Etsy years ago. However, by night (and weekends, holidays, any spare moment), I am now working to turn my passion for quilting into a day job. With that in mind, I activated my shop recently. Now that there’s a new baby in my life and it is more challenging to get to local shows, my Etsy shop has become even more important.
Thank you for stopping by my store!
