Welcome! The natural world around me is a great influence on my work. I live on Canada’s West Coast, surrounded by wonderful gardens and the Pacific Rainforest. My creative life is enriched as I explore new designs and ways to express myself with my art and share discoveries with my students.
Learn about my journey as a quilter and fibre artist and see the workshops and lectures I have developed during my career, where I am teaching and how to schedule a workshop for your guild, shop or event. I am the co-author of five books and designer of many patterns.
My DVD is available! Get ready for the easiest ‘two-for-one’ technique ever! Give & Take Appliqué™ is the “no waste” fusing method that takes advantage of positive/negative design. Perfect curves and sharp points are guaranteed with this new way to fuse. I show you the simple steps for fusing, cutting and machine appliqué. You’ll see great ways to use those wonderful decorative stitches on your machine too. The DVD includes printable patterns for five quilts and inspirations for many more.
See how endless design options are possible with a variety of layout and color combinations. Give and Take Appliqué is so easy and fun – come along and play with me. You won’t be able to stop with just one!
