Biography

Celebrate  74 X 59 May 2008

I have been quilting for twenty plus years. My quilting interest sprouted in 1990 after taking a class in my church. Though this hobby has only recently become a priority in my life.

I am a machine quilter, everything from piecing to quilting is done on a regular household machine. I have taught myself most of the techniques that I employ, with the help of magazines and books. I draw my own patterns for the majority of my quilts after being inspired by a quilt I see in a magazine.

I have entered numerous quilts in competitions and shows throughout the world.  I have won many ribbons including Excellence in Workmanship for a first time entree in the Canadian National Juried Show in 2013,  and first in the miniature category in the Ontario Juried show in 2006. Two areas that I specialize in are miniatures and large quilts.

I am a member of the Region of York Quilters Guild. In my spare time I enjoy quilting, going to quilt shows, teaching my quilting techniques and last but not least quilting.
