I'm a Quilter · Designer · Teacher · Mathematician

When I was 8 years old, my mother taught me to sew. I started making doll clothes using her scraps and worked my way up to making my first dress. I was hooked. By college, I was making my own wardrobe and determined I would sew a quilt after graduation. Which I did!

My career teaching math further engaged my love of quilting as I learned to alter patterns and eventually design my own quilts. Over the years, I've lost count of the many quilts I've made, from the quilts I made for each of my children to the gifts I've given to friends. 

I've spent all of my life learning and growing in my talents and I've equally enjoyed teaching. Many years after my mom taught me to sew, I taught her to quilt. I raised my daughters to love quilting, and I've taught many classes at Lyons Quilting. 

I hope you enjoy my designs! 


I have a pattern featured in Quilts & More Magazine

Scrap Lab Design Challenge: A quilt shop is asked to make a fat quarter stack from various manufacturers and 3 designers are given the challenge of designing something using those fabrics. My local quilt shop, Lyons Quilting in Lyons, CO, put together the fabric and I, as one of the designers, designed a wall hanging that I am calling "Amble Along". So much fun! The magazine will be on news stands May 21, 2021.
