I come from a large family and by the time my mother had me she was already affectionately known as Grandma Dot. Grandma Dot always had blackberries growing in her garden, and was the absolute Queen of pie making. When I came across this blackberry print material the year after she died I knew I wanted to use it to make gifts for each of my sisters in her memory. One Summer morning I woke up with the idea to create this pot holder modeled after one of her beloved pies. It gives me great happiness to know that each time it is created and enjoyed by others my mother is smiling down at me from Heaven. This pattern is featured in the Spring/Summer 2014 issue of Quilt Sampler Magazine as one of St. Louis Missouri's Jackman's Fabrics top sellers.

I've been a quilt designer for more than 20 years specializing in using a curved piecing technique that is utilized in most of my projects and am the author of A New Spin on Curved Piecing, published by Leisure Arts. I work part time at Idaho's biggest and best quilting shop, and as of late have delighted in several baby quilt and diaper bag projects, proud to say I am a grandma three times over this year, as each of my wonderful sons welcomed new babies into the world. I love quilting, grand-babies, and spending time in the mountains with my family. My book is available at Also feel free to follow me on Pinterest for more quilting ideas!
