I began my career as a news reporter, writer, and editor (which might be one reason why I now love blogging!). Later I made a career change to graphic design, and spent 10+ years designing everything from newsletters and magazine articles to logos and wedding invitations. I started sewing in 2007, when I quit work to stay home with my oldest daughter.
I now have my own line of quilt patterns (click here for wholesale information) and I co-authored the book Vintage Quilt Revival: 22 Modern Designs from Classic Blocks in 2013. My work has been seen in Quiltmaker magazine, Fons and Porter's Easy Quilts, Quilt magazine, Sew Mama Sew,
the Moda Bake Shop, and many more.
I'm also proud to be a Bernina Brand Ambassador, and I'm a member of the Board of Directors of the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts.
