I’m a quilter at heart and I love to finish quilts.

Sunbonnet Sue Quilt      Sunbonnet Sue Quilt2

I was named after my grandmother and when she passed away she left me a Sunbonnet Sue quilt top (top left). I knew that I wanted to finish it myself in her memory.

I had a divine intervention when I met a quilter named Ruth.  She would become my teacher, mentor and friend.  Ruth taught me how to piece and hand quilt, then I hand quilted my grandmother’s quilt top.

When I was the guild chair of the Indianapolis Out to Lunch Bunch, I received Sunbonnet Sue blocks made by the members and I machine quilted it on my regular sewing machine. (top right)

In July, 2013 I purchased the long arm machine and in August began the business called Around the Vine Quilting.

In addition to being an accomplished quilter, I am also a public speaker. I enjoy speaking to groups both large and small. If you’d be interested in having me come and present at your event or for your group, please click here to contact me for details and to secure a date in my calendar. I look forward to connecting with you, joining you at your event or meeting, and sharing my love and expertise of the art and passion of quilting!
