After 20+ years of piecing and finishing quilts on a traditional sewing machine, my dream of opening a longarm quilting studio became a reality in May 2017.

A strong background in graphic design steered my longarm machine selection to a computerized system, specifically a Bernina Q24 with Q-matic.  I can confidently create and customize motifs and pantographs specifically for your project. I truly enjoy dropping little design surprises in edge to edge patterns.

My husband will confirm that I’m a bit of a perfectionist. So, know that your quilt will receive the best care and stitching while in my care.

The colors and patterns of today’s fabrics and quilts are so inspirational.  Each quilt is a unique work of art and I would appreciate the opportunity to work on yours!
