I have a passion for quilting which sustains me through all life's joys and trials. My mom and my aunt both made beautiful quilts and they were my inspiration. I have studied under Jan Krenz, Margaret J. Miller, Claudia Clark Myers, Vicki Pignatelli, Laura Nownes, Jane Sassaman, Linda Taylor, Nancy Johnson-Srebro, Blanche Young, Evelyn Sloppy, Liz Porter, Jan Mullen, Ricky Tims, Pepper Cory, Vicki Pignatelli, Flavin Glover, Laura Wasilowski, and Libby Lehman to name a few. I graduated from the University of San Francisco with a Bachelors in Business Administration in 1969 and received my CPA certificate in 1972. I have a strong foundation in math which I think is why quilting is so pleasing to me. I am proud to be a Grandmother and have 7 children and over 20 grandchildren. All have quilts made by Grandma.
