I subscribe to a few mantras in life and maybe you can relate to one (or more) of them for yourself
*I'm a quiltmaker, NOT a seamstress. ~Colette
This means, don't call me up and ask me to hem your pants or mend your torn pocket. I will probably hang up on you. Truly, I do not know how to sew in the traditional sense.
*Life's too short; eat dessert first. ~Unknown
This is probably self explanatory.
*If you think you can or you think you can't, you're absolutely right. ~Henry Ford
I borrowed this one from Mr. Ford because I believe it's so true and live by it every day.
*If you don't do something right the first time, then why even do it at all? ~Merle Zerba
I'm sure you don't recognize the name in who said this one because this was my grandfathers way of doing things. He taught me and my brother to always strive for perfection, or at least do something with all your heart.

We are a goofy family who loves life and having fun while doing it. I try to convey this is my quilt making process; whether it's through the design of the top or the quilting within, or both. You will see many vibrant colors and patterns in my pieces because if you let it, life is full of color.
