I opened my quilt shop, The Quilters Quarters, Inc, in 1996
and began to design my own line of patterns soon after. Cigar Box Quilts@ was a line of patterns that copied some of my vintage quilts into modern, strip pieced patterns. They continue to be favorites today.
I began writing Blocks of the Month for my shop in 2005 with The Girl I Left Behind Me. It chronicles the lives of 12 women who traveled through or lived at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas in the 1800's. My next BOM was Generals Wives which tells the story of 6 Union Generals wives and 6 Confederate Generals Wives. This quilt is, so far, the most successful BOM I have written and I continue to have shops purchase the series for their fabrics.
Numerous patterns and blocks of the month followed and continue to be successful today.
I continue to design and write stories about the quilts for use in your shops.
In June 2014 I closed my brick and mortar shop, moved to the Gulf coast of Florida to be near my children and granddaughter. I continue to run my webstore as I have over 30K followers and customers and to fully develop my design business.
