Since the beginning (1979!) I’ve been designing & making quilts and have written and published many, many Liberty Homestead books & patterns.  I’ve concentrated on what I call “down home quilting”.  These are back to basics, traditional small quilts with a little bit of “pretty” thrown in.  While I’m a major fan of hand quilting, lately I often finish my quilts with a running utility stitch that was prominent in the good old country "made to be used” quilts.  My style of quilting reminisces about a simpler time and place, and hopefully brings those “old timey” feelings into our very modern world.


Many of you may be familiar with my work from seeing my Liberty Homestead booth at quilt shows across the country.  I’ve enjoyed meeting and talking with quilters from coast to coast.  I also love it when you bring pictures of what you’ve made from one of my designs!  When I’m not travelling I’m home working on new designs, dyeing fabric, and making kits.  Or meeting you quilters who are travelling, when I’m not, right here at the Homestead Mercantile.   In between all this travelling, you can keep in touch by signing up for my “never on a regular basis” newsletter.  And, as always – Make a Quilt!

                                              Have Fun!
