My Story

I am inspired by bright colors and dynamic design. I enjoy projects that have a huge WOW-factor. So, of course, when I spotted the beautiful gems of MJ Kinman, Textile Artist, I was intrigued to learn more. I am honored to be a certified Gem Affiliate and share MJ’s patterns and methods with the world.

I also teach classes on different quilts at Top Shelf Quilts in Mokena, IL. You can see their class schedule here.

Workshops are available right now on each of the twelve Birthstone Series blocks. Blocks can be selected as individual classes or a 12 month Block-of-the-month program.  I also design custom projects i
