Welcome To Lovers Of Modern Aesthetic Quilts And Lovers Of Textured Fabrics For Crafts And Dressmaking!

I started my quilting and design journey about 15 years ago when I retired from a very left-brain career. Looking for a joyful activity, I tried making a quilt for our about-to-be-30-year-old daughter and her husband. I was instantly passionate about quilting and about blending a Japanese aesthetic with a contemporary sense of design. Over the intervening years, I have developed contacts in Japan who provide me with the fabrics I use in my designs. Also, I have been continually refining my design aesthetic. The Pacific West Coast, where I live and work, offers me daily inspiration through its shapes, textures, and natural colours found here.


I believe that handwork warrants should use only the best quality fabrics, and that is what I sell. These materials will allow you to create a quilt, garment, or accessory that will happily take a lifetime of wear. If you prefer to select your own fabrics, you can purchase just the pattern for my unique and contemporary quilt designs. Step into my studio and look around!

On this website, you will find my original quilts, kits, and other go-together combinations. To develop these beautiful pieces, I use a collection of fabulous fabrics that I select and import myself. This collection is comprised of Japanese silks, printed and woven cotton, linens, linen/cotton blends, and Bali batik quilting cotton, among others. Also, I design my quilts in my studio in Vancouver, British Columbia, where I am influenced by the palettes of our coastline and our forests.
