My quilt patterns have been published in magazines and books and I freelance design patterns for Clothworks fabric company. I have self published and coauthored a book, Strangled by Wild Geese with my daughter, Laura Day. She wrote the quilt mystery in the book and I designed and made the projects all using flying geese segments-check it out at our I live with my husband in a small town in Michigan near the Saginaw Bay.
