Having grown up in a sewing family, where my mother made all my clothes, and a grandmother, who was a crafter, I came by sewing naturally. However, I came into quilting quite by accident. I was trying to find a gift for a baby shower that was not the "typical" clothing, etc. I found a pattern for a cute baby quilt and thought, "I could do that. ”So, really, I taught myself. I had so much fun and I started taking classes. However, raising 3 kids did not give me lots of time to "play" at this new love.

Fortunately, at about this time, we moved to Fair Oaks and my neighbor was a quilter. I was then introduced to quilt guilds and found lots of inspiration from these meetings. I love finding new tools and trying all kinds of new techniques.

I'm always looking for new challenges!

Generally, it is thought that all Seminole was small pieces. That is not always the case. The "bands" can be made any size you wish.

There are four kinds of bands:
  • 1. alternate
  • 2. stair step
  • 3. floating
  • 4. angle

We will make one of each with options for making the smaller sizes. These can be used in all kinds of ways from decoration for skirts or other articles of clothing (as is typical of the Seminole Indians, to bands in a quilt, table runner, placemat, or borders on a quilt.
