Quilting is a long-standing tradition in my family. I am a fifth generation quilter and turned my hobby into a business when I bought a quilt shop in 2006. As a graphic designer, I was inspired to design quilts and fabric and formed Swirly Girls Design in 2008.
In addition to quilt patterns and books, I am a licensed designer for Michael Miller Fabrics, Dill Buttons and Creative Grids™. I sold my quilt shop i n 2011 to focus on design and teaching. Now I have the best job in the world sharing my love of color and design with quilters all over the world.
I am actively involved in the quilting industry, a member of the International Association of Creative Arts Professionals, a member of Central Virginia Modern Quilt Guild and an Aurifil Thread Specialist.
When not traveling and teaching, I live at home with my husband, Mike, in Moseley, Virginia. We have three adult children Muriah, Alyssa and Chance, plus two dogs Riley and Dioji.
I’d love to meet you! Visit my Workshops page for information on hosting me at your quilt shop or guild.
