ABOUT ME

Hey there.
Born and raised in southwest Ohio, I'm married to my college sweetheart and we have 3 teens {2 guys, 1 gal} I love to garden and volunteer. I'm a terrible housekeeper but I'm a dang good cook and baker.

I learned to sew in high school in a home ec. class and fell in love with it.  I then took 2 semesters of an advanced sewing class and really learned clothing construction and technique. I fell in love with quilts at an early age - it was a double wedding ring quilt that did it for me. It was done in yummy feedsack fabrics against a white muslin background. I love the creative process and I can't get enough of fabric and notions - they make me a little giddy.

But as the kids got busier and busier, I stopped sewing. In 2007, I started sewing again after making a quilt for a friend who adopted a little girl from China. My love for sewing came back stronger than ever! I truly believe God helped me find quilting and sewing again as a way to help me focus positive and useful energy into something that brings me joy.  I can't tell you how much I love creating something!  I love the construction process of quilting and sewing and I find great joy in creating and sharing with other women who create.

One of my very good friends, Kelly,  and I thought it would be a great idea if we wrote a book, so we proposed it in April of 2011. In October 2012, Modern Designs For Classic Quilts was released by F+W Media.
