Love to dream, design, make quilts, write patterns and tutorials, teach quilting skills to youth and adults, and doodle with my longarm quilting machine. I grew up under my grandma's quilt frames, my mother taught me to sew at about age nine, and now I love to hang out with my own daughters in the sewing room, just as I did so many years ago with my mom and sisters. www.quiltscapesqs.com.
