I like all kinds of quilts; traditional quilts, artsy quilts, vintage quilts, modern quilts. I have attempted to make most styles of quilts (some with more success than others). I would sew everyday if the details of life didn’t get in the way. I really like to design my own quilts. Working primarily on a design wall I can spend many happy hours puzzling over how a top should come together.
Lately I have been spending a lot of time working on Scrap quilt designs and strategies for piecing. This is a lot of fun and eco-friendly too! Examples of my recent scrap quilts can be found mostly in the Tab on my home page under Quilt Gallery.
I live near Santa Cruz, CA. I have three wonderful children and a husband who fill my life with great happiness and drive me crazy sometimes all at the same time! I earned a BA in Biology from Sonoma State and a secondary teaching credential from UCLA. I have worked in a variety of educational setting over the years. I love to teach almost as much as I love to sew and I have found that my science school teaching experience has been useful in informing my quilting experience as well.
