Me

Pin It My name is Jennifer and I love quilting and all things fabric.  After a series of athletic injuries and surgeries, I needed a relatively safe hobby so I decided to try quilting.  As it turned out, I was one of those people who didn't discover the extent of my creativity until I picked out some fabrics, picked up a needle and some thread, and made my first quilt. From then on I was hooked and quilting has become a passion in my life. 

I believe in quilting without obligation; for the passion and the art rather than churning out a quilt-of-the-day.  I'm honest and opinionated and believe that anyone who wants to quilt, young or old, rich or poor, should have the opportunity to create and make a quilt. 
I enjoy machine piecing and quilting but my first love is to hand piece and hand quilt my quilts; it might take a little longer but the results are truly rewarding and most importantly handmade. I find it quite interesting to take more modern fabrics and work them in to traditional patterns. I love collaborating on custom quilts and I take a limited number of commissioned projects per year.
I have a wonderful and supportive husband, Steve and a fabulous 8 year old daughter, Chaney.  My daughter is smart, funny, and super creative.  She and I spend many hours together creating and crafting in my sewing studio.  My husband is my sewing machine "fixer", a creative second eye, occasional quilt baster, my best friend, and the one I fall in love with over and over.  We have two beagles, Buddy & Gus, who combined with the 8 year old, keep us on our toes all the time!
I work full time in the high pressure world of finance.  I'm a gymnastics mom and softball coach {& mom}to one athletic little girl and I have a date night with my husband once a week.  So what spare time I have left in the evenings and on weekends I escape and spend creating, piecing, quilting, and rolling around in my beloved fabric stash.
