My love for quilting began at an early age. I can remember watching my grandmother Norris weave the needle through the layers of her quilts while growing up.

I started sewing on domestic machines at the age of five and sewing upholstery coverings and cushions for customers in my mother’s upholstery shop, beginning at the age of 10.

In 1984, I married my best friend and we decided to open our own upholstery shop, located in Oakland, Oregon.

Since then, our family has grown. We have two daughters, two son-in-laws and four grandkids who make our life wonderful and busy.

I started my quilting career in 2008, taking a class to learn how to quilt out my own quilts. I purchased a Gammill a couple weeks later, not realizing that I had been afflicted with the most wonderful bug! I have been busy quilting full time from that moment on. All of my quilting is free-motion and ruler work, with most of the quilts being custom in design.

I have been honored to receive several awards, including multiple Best of Shows, and faculty awards for MQX Midwest. Designing quilt patterns and original quilting designs are what I love most about the process. I have many quilt designs in my head trying to come out in fabric, one quilt at a time!

As my life continues, there will always be a special place in my heart for grandma Norris and the love for quilting she has placed inside of me.
