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
A beautiful variation of the "storm at sea "block: the central "square in a square" is replaced by an eight point star. Pattern includes instructions for traditional piecing (templates) and foundation piecing. The colors were inspired by the picture beside the quilt: a little corner of the Mediterranean Sea. The quilt is finished with a "Greek" border where the black is a symbol of the rocky shoreline of my home town.
