A Quilting life...I live in the desert of southern Nevada, but I love the ocean and rainy days. I love my terrific family--my husband, four wonderful children, and my three cute granddaughters! My hobbies are quilting,stitching,reading, writing, and genealogy.
I've loved fabric since I was a child--I was blessed with a mother and grandmother who both sewed for me and inspired me to sew. I received my first sewing machine and sewing lessons at our local Singer shop when I was about 10 and have been sewing clothing and home decor items ever since. In about 1993 I began quilting with a "gentle push" from my grandmother, and I haven't stopped!
Blogging has opened up a whole new world of quilting inspiration for me--I'm amazed on a daily basis by the wonderful creativity and generosity of quilting bloggers from all over the world. Thanks to everyone who I meet through this world of blogging!
I love sharing my love of quilting here on the blog. I've also written two books: A Quilting Life: Creating a Handmade Home, and Fresh Family Traditions. I publish patterns through my pattern company, Quilting Life Designs, and I design fabric for Moda along with my daughter Chelsi.
