Inktense Flowers

By popular demand, how I created my "Inktense Flowers". I was new to Inktense last year so this was an experiment.  A normal person would have thrown this experiment away pretty early on, but we're not talking about a normal person here. We're talking about a stubborn...

“Galaxy” Quilted Art on Canvas

Another fearless experiment with paint! (I say fearless because I don't know about you but I find a blank canvas or a blank piece of fabric quite intimidating!!) I got a nice set of Jacquard Dye-Na-Flow fabric paints (all fabric paints are linked in my Products tab)...

Santa–Couching Foot

The temptation to get the COUCHING INSERTS for the BERNINA #72 ruler foot was too tempting this past Black Friday (50% off)! I really had in mind using the smallest of the 3 inserts to do some small projects, but so far I cannot get anything to work but the largest...

ROOSTER–Inktense Quited Art

I decided to try another Inktense experiment. I had this awesome photo of a Rooster which I took a few years ago at the Austin Zoo (a rescue zoo!). I thought he might make for an interesting piece of art... that is IF I could pull it off. I mean, seriously, using...

About Me

I began my free motion quilting (FMQ) journey in February 2017. Some of my pieces are for sale and I do commission work.

I’m also a professional artist, photographer, and greeting card artist & writer (humor). I love combining quilting and art! I got my inspiration from my grandmother who was a quilter. Being under one of her quilts felt like love itself.

My blog was begun in October 2018. The first post shows how I got started and includes some other projects from 2017, too. See my gallery for more of my current works!

I live in Austin, Texas with my sweet husband, two cute doggies, a beautiful koi pond, and my Bernina Q20!
