About The Instructor

My fascination with quilting began when I received a Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt as a wedding present in 1991.  The gift of a second scrappy quilt further solidified my love of fabrics and colors.  I made my first quilt to celebrate the birth of my first child around 1993.  I had loved quilting ever since.  I love all styles and types of quilts from art to modern, from traditional pieced to applique.  I also love how quilting is a connection through the ages and across generations.

Originally a native of California, I graduated from West Point in 1991.  Right after graduation, my husband Patrick and I began our life together by serving in the Army.  I left the service in 1998 to be at home with our 5 children.  For the next two decades, quilting became the bridge that helped me to build relationships in each new community.  Though I have moved more than 20 times during my family’s military service, quilters are a welcoming group and I have been so thankful for them.

As my kids have grown, so have my quilting skills.  I now have more time available to share the quilting skills that I love.  I started teaching about 16 years ago.  After our last move, I began working and teaching at local shops and guilds on a consistent basis.   In 2016, I also became a professional longarm quilter, opening FabriKated Quilts.

In 2016, I was first introduced to Westalee Designs Quilting Rulers and Templates.  I was instantly hooked!  Rulerwork tools have helped me advance my quilting skills more that I ever dreamt possible.  I am thrilled and proud to be a Sew Steady Education Ambassador and a Westalee Design Acredited Teacher.  The freedom and creativity generated by these tools is so satisfying.  I want to give that power to quilters everywhere.

I love sharing my passion for quilting and art, passing on a centuries old tradition, and creating beautiful items of comfort.  Let’s start FabriKating your next quilt!
