I have always been a crafty person. As a kid, my mom taught me how to crochet and basic sewing skills. I learned to sew clothes after taking Home Economics in junior high school. I was a garment sewer for many years. I discovered quilting after my mom picked up the hobby later in life. I was fascinated and wanted to learn more. I bought a book and taught myself to quilt by making a sampler wall hanging. Today, I enjoy all aspects of quilting, from piecing to free motion quilting. I am a quilt pattern designer and inspired by traditional quilt blocks. I am also host of an online membership that features quilt pattern designers and fabric artists of color.
