I am a quilter from Ontario, Canada. I've been married to a wonderful man for the past 42 years and have two children, a daughter and a son. I've been quilting for about 18 years, and have been designing my own patterns for the past 12 years. My first design was a quilt titled "All About Bears" which I designed in 1999. I love hand applique, and have since published several other applique patterns. Recently, I have been experimenting with embellishing my quilts using crystals, embroidery threads and silk ribbons.
