I've always been a creative person. During my early years at Quiltmaker, my then elementary-aged twins Andy and Kellie, gave me inspiration for quilt designs. I used their toys and pets to create pictorial quilts like "Over by the Pond", "Construction Zone" and "Ragamuffin."
Now they will be attending high school in the fall—time does fly by fast! I still enjoy designing pictorial quilts, although there are many other enjoyable aspects of my job here at Quiltmaker.
My day here is filled with creative avenues consisting of magazine layout and design, art directing and styling photography, and meeting those production deadlines.
At the end of my day, now that my kids are older, I sometimes find free time in which I can finish a few quilt tops.
