About Me

My husband and I own and operate a dairy farm in northern Indiana. I help on the farm, keep the farm account books, raise a garden, keep the yards mowed and cook all the meals. My passion though, is for quilting.

I don't  know when I learned to quilt, it seems like I've always known. I grew up in a quilting family, my mother quilted as did both my grandmothers. The church I grew up in had an active sewing circle. I attended along with my mother and grandmothers during summer when I wasn't in school and quilted on the quilts that were in the frames. I just grew up in a quilting world and thought everyone knew how to quilt.

My quilting life took a major advance in January 2006 when I joined the Maple Leaf Quilt Guild. Since joining the guild I have learned to hand applique, machine applique, English paper-piecing and I have even started doing some machine quilting using my home sewing machine.

 I'm basically a hand quilter but do utilize the skill of long-arm quilters.

  1. Your pics of farm life are enjoyable.. and reading of your hand quilting is wonderful..hand quilters are similar to four-leaf clovers..rare and collectible. Machine quilting is faster.. if faster is the goal. Nice to stumble onto your blog.
