About me...

I’ve been quilting for 15 plus years, indulging in my passion for creating traditional scrappy quilts using modern quilting methods. For almost 10 years, I’ve been hosting fabric swaps to provide other quilters the opportunity to build a stash for their scrappy projects.  Currently I've started dabbling in writing my own patterns using traditional quilt blocks or 5" squares.

I’m originally from the Northwest suburbs of Chicago.  In 2009, I decided to make a major life change and I moved to Iowa.  My family in Iowa has slowly grown to 4 cats named Miss Montana (the old lady), Mr. McKinley, Matilda Jayne (our shop cat) and Lizzy (fat cat).  All my kids have paws!
While many think this was a big change to move from a city to a small town, it wasn’t for me.  I love the small town life!
