Quilts are a integral part of our history, culture and everyday lives. They meet aesthetic and functional needs. They tell stories. They unite us as people. They help us pass on our legacies  to future generations.

As a quilting teacher, author, designer and patternmaker I am constantly amazed at all these pieces of fabric accomplish in and through us as quiltmakers. They celebrate our joys, comfort us in our sorrows and help us learn more about ourselves in the process of their creation.

This is why I am always learning and looking for new ways to help my students fully embrace the history, importance and simply joy of quilting. Enjoy the journey with me as I post new patterns, tools, articles, thoughts, lectures and other tricks of the trade. Learn a new technique, discover a shortcut, find a new skill and embrace the world of quilting with me.
