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!
