Piecing fabric is the foundation of tradtional quilting, but it can also be used in artistic ways. The crane tracks card is inspired by Jean Wells' artwork, a randomly pieced section inserted into the background piece. Combining piecing with other techniques such as applique or decorative stitching can make them more artistic as well.

I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing! After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now designing kits and patterns. Some of them have even been in Keepsake Quilting! I teach classes at local quilt shops, and am starting to do more traveling and teaching. I also have many tutorials, including some on YouTube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
