My career started in costumes for the theater. After 15 years, I switched over to making patterns for the fashion industry. I learned to quilt from other pattern makers with whom I worked. It didn't take me long to fall in love with the whole process. All that fabulous cotton fabric! All those intricate designs! And not a single dart or princess seam in sight!!! What's not to love?That little furry thing in my arms is Buns, my dog. She makes me laugh...well, except when she is getting me up to feed her breakfast. And no. She is not spoiled...well, maybe a little bit. OK. You got me. She runs the house.
