My name is Amy. My grandmother taught me to sew when I was a small girl. It was one of the best gifts she ever gave me. I made my first quilt when I was about 12 years old. It was a butterfly pattern, which I appliquéd by hand onto muslin squares. Sadly, that quilt got washed away by hurricane Katrina.
I’ve been married to a traveling soldier for almost three decades now and we’ve been all over the world. We’re currently living in Hawaii, which is wonderful.
My primary interests are scrap quilts (obviously), pieced quilts, and quilt design. I don’t care much for appliqué, despite that first butterfly quilt, mostly because I don’t like hand work. I love the look of it, I just don’t like doing it. I also enjoy making bags, wallets and other small projects.
I’ve been inspired by many great quilters over the years. I hope you find something inspiring here.
