What is your quilting style?

I design both appliqué with a touch of Victorian/nostalgia and pieced quilt patterns with simple blocks that make a graphic overall design. My most recent collection is a series of Stuffies Baby Quilts.

How did you get started quilting and/or designing?

After making a pictorial quilt of my own creation [Victorian Manor], I was asked by my quilt guild to develop a workshop.

Do you have a favourite quilt?

That’s a hard one…I’ve recently counted, and discovered I now have over 100 quilt designs, after 10 years of offering my quilt patterns exclusively online. I love all of my quilts, or I wouldn’t enjoy finishing them!

My loveliest, would be my Victoriana Album quilt.
