After more than
40 years of quiltmaking I have come to the conclusion that
quilts are like potato chips: I can't sew just one!
I sew three kinds of quilts: crazy quilts, quilts
using fulled wool, and patchwork piecing (not traditional).
I invite you to browse around my site by clicking on the
different styles of quilts. Some of these pages are heavy with
graphics; please be patient while they load. You might
want to maximize your screen for easy viewing.
I love to use my computer to play around with quilt designs. I also like to use quilt patterns on small gift items; check out my Quilter’s Refrigerator Magnets on the Patterns and Kits page. They are perfect to slip inside a card for a quilting friend, an inexpensive gift or thank you.

season on September 20, 2004.
several new pages such as the What's New page, Patterns and
Kits, and finally a Links page. I've also updated my
Classes and Workshops page, should you be looking for a teacher
for your guild. I hope you find something interesting on
To give you a taste of some of the new work I have been doing,
below is a graphic of a fulled wool star block with a thread
lace center square. Thread lace is a wonderful way to use
up those little leftover pieces of threads, yarns and fibers.
I keep a piece by my sewing machine so I can clean out the last
bits of threads on my bobbins and spools.
