I was born long enough ago that I remember the first computer coming to my school, but recently enough that I’m not responsible for my fashion choices in the 80s. I grew up in a mid-size town, and married my high school sweetheart. Together, we have 6-year-old twins. They are the loves of my life.
I only reluctantly attend parties and large gatherings, and I tend to hide out when there’s too much going on. I spend hours upon hours cutting, sewing, and pressing fabric in my quiet studio. One of my favorite things is to open the window to hear the wind in the trees.
I use herbs and essential oils to keep my family healthy, birthed my twins at home (best choice I ever made), and know I’m taken more seriously when I wear my glasses. Some of my favorite things include color, fabric, crinkly well-loved quilts, tiny squares, washi tape, and homemade bread with cheese.
In a perfect world, I’d be living in a contemporary farmhouse far enough from everything so I have lots of wide open space, and close enough to civilization that I don’t run out of gas before I get there. I love languages, am never without a sketchbook, have too many pens, and know it is never too late to learn something new. I believe that kindness matters most, preach the power of good design and beautiful colors, and am hopelessly obsessed with the color orange.
While writing and creating each quilt pattern, I do my best to make the instructions as clear as possible. My hope is that anyone could pick up my pattern and be successful in making it, no matter their skill level.
I have been quilting for over 15 years now, and plan to keep doing it for a very, very long time.
