My, you are a curious one to get to this page!

My quilts are mostly original compositions and I humbly share them here. I tend to create quilts that are a little wacky and workmanship is not my priority though I admire it greatly in others!  I like asymmetry and unusual compositions, and happy accidents.

I make many for other people with their palette or taste in mind. Often they have asked to include my own fabrics. But I love piecing with solids and I also love collecting great fabric prints other than my own. I’m not a “show” quilter. Really just for fun. But enjoy!
