I was born and raised on the beautiful island of Sicily (Italy). I have being interested in arts and crafts since the young age of 8, when I learned to crochet, knit and sew. I graduated from college with a Master's in Geology and started my own consulting company. However, I've always made time for my hobby. I think my artistic ability comes from my father, who was a terrific artist. There wasn't anything he couldn't paint.
I actually fell in love with the art of quilting after I moved to Montana 15 years ago. After making challenging patterns designed by famous quilters I decided to try designing patterns of my own. I have been designing patterns for about 7 years. I initially made my quilts for myself and my kids, but I was encouraged by my husband and my friends to start my own company and share my patterns with other quilters. I also love digitizing. If something catches my eyes I try to put it on fabric or embroidery
This quilt was made several years ago for my little boy. He has been always in love with any kind of bugs and, of course, he was a candies eater too. At night he used to catch fire flies, put them in a jar, and take them to his room. He was my inspiration for the quilt. I went around several quilt store to find the right prints and in the blink of an eye I got the perfect quilt for him. This pattern will make every little boy happy...and maybe a little girl too.
