Since taking up the art of quilting in 1989, it has mushroomed from a pleasant pastime to an all consuming sometimes monster that has gobbled up my life. My pattern company INNOVATIONS was born in 1994. As a hobby becomes a business it can be hard to strike a healthy balance sometimes. Be careful what you wish for! I am so blessed to have a supportive husband who pitches in and makes it all possible! Designing and quilting for contests and challenges or for the pattern company, teaching, lecturing, travel and all of the mundane tasks of running a business take up so much time! I hope I will be able to keep up with a blog, as well!
