I’ve written two books on color, The Quilter’s Color Club (C&T) and Color: the Quilter’s Guide (Martingale), as well as articles for McCall’s Quilting, American Patchwork & Quilting, and American Quilter. Three of my designs have appeared in Modern Patchwork (Winter, 2014, Summer 2014, and Spring 2015).

Go to my blog to see pictures of the front.

stitchStitch magazine, Winter 2015, features my Rods& Reels Lumbar Pillow. A fun way to use Kaffe Fassett stripes and a pair of used denim jeans.

DSC_0667Modern Holidays 2014,  from the editors of Stitch, has my “Sleep Sweet Eyemask.” It is made from an up-cycled cashmere sweater and dupioni silk blouses.


DSC_0732Modern Patchwork Spring 2014 has my amazingly different and fun “Summer Quilted Backpack.” I made a trip to the hardware store to find different ideas for straps. The bungee straps I came up with are very comfortable.
