About Me

I love quilting. That's actually a bit of an understatement. I really, really love quilting. To me, quilting is far more than a hobby. It's an obsession, a lifestyle, and it simultaneously soothes me and challenges me. In quilting I find a medium for artistic expression that I never imagined possible.

I've been making things all my life, but if I was told a few years ago that I'd one day come to love quilting this much, I would have laughed. But one day, without warning, I found myself interested. Soon after that, I found myself completely obsessed. Quilting came into my life at a time when I desperately needed an outlet, and I've hung on to it and not let go since. I love piecing with all the colors of the rainbow, and I especially love free-motion quilting as a way to add another layer of design and texture to the quilt.

Besides quilting, I also knit, crochet, weave (sometimes) and away from crafting, I like to play the piano and arrange music. I live with my husband and two young kids in Chicagoland, and I enjoy the cold winters for they give plenty of excuses to snuggle under quilts.
